I always love the latest tech.... I dont always buy it but I love it. I had the first gen kindle fire rooted with all kinds of roms. I loved it being rooted it was so much faster than the stock kindle fire but I could see that it was limited with the cores and ram so I bought the nexus wifi 32gb, rooted with a prime rom and it is so fast I cant imagine faster. A faster boot would be nice but all the tweaking that i have done with this nexus 7 has made this machine a beast. Now I dont play a lot of games so I am sure that it is not the best tablet to run games but I do watch a ton of movies and with the tweaks and the rom that I currently have the battery life is great.
I will wear this nexus out before I get another one
