Their website lists three pricing schemes $2199 for the base model with a 1.83GHz processor (with a pre-release special offer of a GPS add-on!), $2399 and $2699 for the 2.0GHz models.

Otherwise they all sport iSight, Apple Remote, 802.11g wNIC, Bluetooth, Superdrive and integrated GPS module.
The tablet uses a WACOM digitizer, Axiotron digitizer pen and Forceglass screen which covers the LCD and camera.
