The real question is: Can the user do all/most of their work without a real keyboard? Where my daughter works, as a PA, they are converting to electronic medical records. The input device they were using was an iPad2. They quickly got keyboards, and needed to. This was not a good fit. At the health care system that I go to. They have wired thin clients with keyboard and mouse, also a MUCH larger LCD screen that works very well. Not as sexy, but functional. It is likely that is cheaper too AND much less prone to damage and "loss".
