Anyone who can handle any computer can 'work' a tablet pc..since it is a fully functional pc running an advance version of win XP Pro (tablet edition)
looking for one that can take 'even dropping'...dont even think about it!!...most wont take much of drop...brittle plastic 'ya know. But Fujitsu has a 'bump case'..one that has extra padding around it, but the screen is exposed.
There are ruggedize units...but get ready to pay mega bucks..
Since the tablet is a full PC..if you can link any pc to another pc on your network, a table will work as well...
