I'm a hair Stylist and want to get a tablet for my business. I need to access the web (for CC payments and online scheduling), along with my emails, etc. Unfortunately I don't have any free wi-fi hotspots near by. I've been looking at the tablets but just don't know which one would work the best for me. Any Ideas???

Is there a possibility of getting some sort of broadband internet for your place? DSL especially could be cheaper than trying to get access from a cell phone company.

If you have to get it from a cell phone company, you'll be paying probably at least $30/month for access, and be limited to just a few GB for that price, most likely. You can get various setups that would work with a real computer (i.e. a notebook of some sort) or a tablet.

You'd want to be VERY careful if you're buying some sort of tablet that it would actually work with what you need it to work with. There are tablets running real Windows, but basically a small notebook would probably be a better choice, and actually cheaper. Android tablets aren't supported long after launch-you'd be stuck upgrading more often, and their web browsers aren't necessarily going to work with any website you might need. The same is also true of the iPad, which STARTS at $630 for one with a cell phone connection built in, doesn't have true multitasking, also has a limited web browser that won't support every function on every site, etc.

Yes, but with an iPad you buy into a large and growing ecosystem with many app available geared towards business. Still, an netbook or notebook might be easier to interface with and be even more versatile.

if you buy a tablet , its gonna need the internet in or to benefit you ... If there is no free wifi , you may need to have some internet set up in ur store, then get a wireless router, so that everyone you work with can enjoy wifi .

if it's for business you should be able to write it off on your taxes as a business expense, just ask your accountant. if you can, get a full computer, either a laptop or desktop. otherwise they have those free credit card readers for your phone. they send you the reader for free and you just pay per use. some have a set $2 per swipe fee, others 3% of the charge. google mobile credit card readers. just add the fee into your customers total.
