Is the trimble yuma a good tablet for me?

I am a geology major in college graduating this year with my BS and moving on to grad school. I was looking into getting a new laptop to take notes on, hop on the internet to check emails and listen to music and have the gps for the field. I saw the trimble yuma online its kind of pricey ($4000) but seems like it could accomplish all this fairly well and would survive field work. I guess my question is would it be worth the investment or am I better off with some other alternative?

As an every day PC it's not that great. Small low resolution screen, very little disk space. And the touchscreen performance suffers due to the constraints imposed by making it rugged.

The battery life is good and it's very tough but unless you really really need that toughness then it's probably not worth the money.

Depending on just how much you need to do in the field it may make more sense to get a more conventional laptop type PC and a rugged handheld GPS/PDA along the lines of the Trimble GeoXM for field work.
