Using M$ solutions is probably just as expensive!

If you are going to have less than 75 users total, then Microsoft Small Business Server 2003 R2 would be ideal.  You can lock down everything, the price is really good too.  Your tablet PC would have to be running XP Pro so that they could be joined to the domain.
