    Personally I don't know for sure as a lot depends on how the devices are treated by the users.

    But as a lot of Tablets can not have their batteries changed easily without dismantling then I would tend to agree with your procurement team. Personally I wouldn't expect them to last as long as a NB but that's maybe just me.

    Is it the case that (or, should I say, is it the opinion of your IT) that it is easier to mandate a particular notebook model and specification vs a tablet? meaning, if "tablets" are allowed, then every user will want to bring his own, making the project more complex to implement and support?

    ref: the many (many) "BYOD" discussions on this and other sites
