Regarding the PVS it looks like 50% of the Nexus 7 are PVS 3, that's fine and should allow average undervolting I guess/hope.
Thanks again for all those infos.
Last question : Are the LTE version, aside from LTE support, better/worse for any reason?
I should have done a better job in my previous post, as usual Aerowinder was very precise! I will use the excuse that I had one eye open at the time. ; ) I think it's very important to verify touch screen response is working properly within the first week. My first 2013 N7 I pre-ordered through Best Buy, luckily. It had a vertical section in the middle of the screen that would always register a longpress as a tap. Very annoying because immediately after opening the box I unlocked the bootloader, flashed TWRP and rooted it. Then... after I had most everything downloaded and setup I realized it had screen issues! Had to flash the factory image and lock the bootloader then took my silly a$$ to Best Buy and did an exchange, all in the first day! So... I would wait a bit before unlocking the bootloader, maybe a few hours or a couple days, whatever works for you. You have one week to return or do an exchange, after that it's a RMA to Asus.
My N7 is also PVS 3 and I realized a couple months ago that my N7 had a slight occasional micro stutter swiping between home screens, app drawer, scrolling in the browser and I've only ever undervolted the lowest frequency, 384 MHz. I could live with the occasional stutter but I'm using stock voltages now and battery life is still pretty good, stutter is gone. Your mileage will vary with undervolting.
LTE? I personally don't see the point of the added cost and getting much slower updates. I've always been able to tether all of my different N7's to either my One X, N4 or N5 and it works very well depending on cell signal strength of course. I've had unlimited data for years and I'm setup to not pay extra for tethering. So...either version of the Nexus 7 2013 is a very nice tablet, if I could stretch the screen to 8" it would be perfect!
