Panasonic Toughbook laptop are indeed fairly good for that (I believe
it's the kind of computer that's installed in police car).  You can get
them used on Ebay, but they are still fairly pricey.  Personally, I
would rather buy a very cheap (100$) refurbished laptop.  For basic data
entry and web browsing, it should be sufficient.  That way, it's no big
deal if it gets broken or stolen.

I wouldn't dare to bring a pricey tablet in the field.  o_O
