what is the appeal of the NEX system?

Seriously looking to hear what NEX lovers love about the system. I have been shooting with Sony DSLRs for the last couple of years and have an A77 on order. I've played with a couple of the NEX models and, well, let me just say that I don't "get" their appeal. But they're obviously selling well and the photos I've seen are excellent. Michael Reichmann at Luminous Landscape seems to like 'em. So what's the deal? Why did you buy a NEX rather than an A580 or one of the newer DSLT models?

Is it simply the size?
