Tablet PC's for field use

I am pretty new here but I am happy to find the land of the Pentax lovers! I am currently looking into the new and ever changing market of tablets. I know for sure that I do not want to go with an Android tablet as I want to do more than play angry birds. What I cannot find in my search is if any of the Windows based tabs would allow me to use it as a touch screen laptop and most of all, use as a photo viewer and light editor. I know they cannot replace my editing desktop but can anyone shed some light on the tablet market and if they are worth anything to a digital photographer yet?

You can using an external CD/DVD drive install Adobe Lightroom.

The Photoshop Lightroom 3 Software from Adobe is a complete photo management and editing suite for Mac OS X and Windows. Perfect for enthusiasts and professionals alike, Lightroom takes a nondestructive approach to photo editing. When editing your photos, the original files are left unmolested. All of your adjustments and edits are stored in a database and applied to an image on the fly, so that you'll always be able to go back to the original image. This lets you perform as many post-processing adjustments on a photo as you'd like, without making permanent changes to the original image.
