Right now I have a 64GB MicroSD caard in my Note 10.1 2014, which is HUGE. I don't like Google limiting me to cloud storage on a WiFi only device.
Otherwise they are probably the two best tablets available right now, so you're not really going to go wrong with either.
I got the note for exactly the same reasons...and impatience.
Downsides of the note are the bloat, sick of some of it (scrapbook constantly clogging up memory, video trimmer thing as well, never use these so dont need them in memory!) but havent yet rooted a device. Have a note 2 and dont use the pen that often but it is very useful when I do want to use it......its a bit like spending the extra getting a leatherman with a bit kit or one not as advanced.....you dont use all the tools all the time but they are there for when you do want to use them.
I think I could get away without the 64gb extra as most of my stuff is online or on a HD on my home network, I have got into using cloud/google drive a lot more (I am a Google certified teacher) which I am finding very good but trying to change a habit of a lifetime is difficult.
Recent articles are pointing to Google dropping out of this sector of the tablet market.....so who knows if a new Nexus 10 will come out.
