What Tablet to buy for my ebay business??

Hello all! I own a few online retail business sites. I sell mainly on ebay. I'm looking to buy a tablet and was wondering which would serve me best. I don't know a whole lot about them. I would need it to work with my wireless HP printer too. Not looking to spend a fortune and I don't need it to drive a car for me, just a good basic tablet for selling on ebay (& checking email, etc..)... ***I would also like it to view more like a PC view than an app view (if possible).***

Any help is appreciated!

At this point the ipad is the best bet due to the abundance of apps. I print to my HP wireless from mine using AirPrint. One of the advantages I liked was remote control of a PC as well and the ability to run apps on it , or troubleshoot the system.

Best work tablet is the Microsoft Surface, no other tablet has a more complete OS and device and printer support. It also comes with office and usable keyboard, don't follow the crowd make your own opinion after using it.

If you want to look at a Surface, I highly recommend getting your hands on one and trying it out before you spend the money. I've heard a lot of hate for Windows 8....

I have a Galaxy Tab 10.1 inch and I love it. It feels like a larger version of my phone and there's almost no learning curve if you've used an Android OS phone....

Thanks for all the responses folks!... I was thinking the Galaxy may be my best bet, as I've had the original Galaxy Phone and now have the S3, so there would be no real learning curve. Going to take a good look at the Surface too.

Can not beat the Apple platform iPads due to the tremendous app market present. The iOS employed is very mature and refined. The Android platform is getting much better thankfully and the current 4.2.1 Jelly Bean version is getting very good.

Sorry but you will pay a little more for the iPad but it is stills worth it. Especially consider getting one with a built-in cellular capability. Can't tell you the number of times that I have wound up using that feature. :-) Beats trying to do stuff on a smartphone by a longshot since there's no contract to wrestle with and so much more practical a size.
