Hey I'm looking for a tablet that can be taken on site and used for work, what is the best tablet with external keyboard?

You can buy protective covers for almost all Tablets. How you look after it is up to you. Tablets, built with special Rough Cases are expensive and, so I have been told, can lead you into a sense of false security.

USB and Bluetooth Keyboards are readily available, you don't necessarily need to shell out for an "All in one"

Take a look at this It will withstand a great deal of abuse, and there's a keyboard that plugs in which will also stand up to a lot of rough and tumble.

The tablet has been very favourably reviewed, but you'll pay for all this rugged protection - this one starts at £1400. There are others around the same price, and some that are quite a bit more.

Of course, if you are getting it to use "on site" whatever you buy will be a Business Cost and therefor Tax Deductible.

Where is "ON SITE"? That could be someone else's office or a sewage farm? The requirements will be different.
