The iPad hasn't replaced anything I own (OK, the Kindle doesn't get much use, but it is much more readable in bright sunlight).
If people buy a netbook as a basic extension device to their main computer, the devices are awesome. Daphne described the perfect use for the machines IMO. They are great on trips and powerful enough to do things you want it to do. On the road and at home, I watch movies with it, stream video, and any basic computing tasks you want to do.
