+1 for Ubiquiti Unifi. I run the controller on my Macbook, the APs are spread across several locations and some locations have several. Roaming is seemless, quality and features are impressive and they are dirt cheap. 3 packs are 250$, that comes to about 85$ / AP. The controller is included and there is no license to pay or recurring fees.

For what it's worth XenClient is exactly what you need, though it requires a Citrix infrastructure at work so it might not work out. But you'd have an hypervisor on the laptop with two VMs, Work and Home. Work is loaded by IT and sync'd with XenDesktop, and Home is loaded by you and you control everything on it. Complete isolation of both images.

You're looking at it wrong. They didn't cripple it to sell more phones, they developped the product when they still had good market share in the mobile world and wanted to sell PlayBooks into existing BlackBerry accounts. It was a way to bypass IT having to manage another device and piggyback on the already-approved BlackBerries in enterprise (think FIPS approval, etc). They did not expect then that nobody would want BlackBerry devices anymore, and that it would be a major handicap to the PlayBook to not be able to function as a standalone device.
Short-sighted yes, malicious tactic I think not.
