I'd say yes...here's what I did:
1 - Rooted my tablet
2 - Installed Gapps(googleservicesframework, accountsandsyncsettings, googleloginservices, play store, gmail, etc)
3 - Installed Market Helper
4 - Installed Titanium Backup(paid version)
5 - Installed launcher I wanted
6 - Uninstalled default launcher plus TONS of other bloatware
It took a little bit of time to do, but it was definitely worth it at the end of the day.
Out of the box(and other ppl may have different experiences) but I was only pulling about 6500 on Antutu, now it's up to 9300 Antutu Benchmark, and 2700 on Quadrant. That's without tweaks installed, just rooted and bloatware removed...and remember this is on ICS 4.0.4...when I was running CM10.1 4.2.2 I was pulling about 10,500 for my Antutu. The N7 being a quad core averages aaround 12,000...I think that's pretty good. Once CM10.1 gets Audio, I COMPLETELY plan on using it as a daily driver. It's just...better. 8.9" screen is the perfect size for me...I love it.
