All in one touch screen advice

Hi all,

I'm looking to get a dozen or so pc's to place in a laboratory environment.   I thought about using small laptops, but the evironment isn't well suited to laptops and keyboards.  I'd like to look into a panel pc solution with a touchscreen.  These will require very little user interaction and will need to run Internet Explorer and perhaps excel at the most.  They will be used to integrate scales into a LIMS system.

Any advice on an inexpensive touchscreen solution?

I have had alot of success with this:  http://www.tabletkiosk.com/

They are basic systems and the touchscreens are spot on.  Small, lightweight, and very durable.  The downside of these is that they basically run on the specifications of a netbook, but if what you really need is internet access and excel, they will work more than adequately.  They have solid wireless and additionally include blue tooth.

Maybe you missed all the rave about Apple's new Ipad.
Here it is
Apple Ipod Multi Touch

Multi-Touch.
Everything’s at your fingertips.
Technology is at its best when it feels completely natural, almost like there’s no technology at all. That’s Multi-Touch on iPad. You use your fingers to do everything, so everything you do — surfing the web, typing email, reading books, and swiping through photos

I have an IPAD, i wouldn't consider it a device to place into a working laboratory environment.  I should add, I want a Windows based system.

I'm currently looking at IGO and some other fanless type Panel PC's with Intel Atom processors.  Fanless is important, as we have a dusty environment
