If I could get a tablet format PC with a battery life of 20hours I would certainly prefer it to a DR1000 type device. This is due to as you say the capabilities of a PC compared to a dedicated reader.
However, format, weight and battery life are what you are paying the premium for.
Something like this would be nice: http://www.fujitsu-siemens.com/produ...listic_st.html
but I bet that's gonna cost close to $2000.
