You can find some commentary on this at my blog, Omics Omics.

I think the dismissive poster is missing that PacBio will, at least initially, be playing for different customers in different spaces, though also bumping up against some of established players (particularly 454). Very long read lengths & $100 as the atomic experiment size are quite different than the existing platforms. Perhaps there will be very few labs which would want a PacBio to the exclusion of the others, but it could well play a role as a complementary machine for a lot of projects.
