    If the primary reason for wanting a tablet is gaming...then you COULD wait for the next Tegra, but who know when that'll be or when it'll launch in an actual device. That being said...the Nexus 7 is a fantastic tablet, runs great, is cheap, and runs all the Tegrazone stuff perfectly.

    Don't get the Note 10.1 if you wanna game...it's just not built for it.

    The Transformer tablets from Asus are also really good...but the Infinity isn't the greatest for gaming.

    The Note 10.1 is great for being productive. Not so much anything else (at least it's not better than anything else in any other area).

    The Prime Infinity can get laggy fairly easily.

    The Nexus 7 might not cost a lot, but it doesn't feel or act cheap at all.

    I/O gets bogged down fairly easily. So it's not permanent, but if you're updating apps or doing something that's writing to the storage you'll see it.

    The 10 also suffers from lag and being bogged down in certain scenarios. For example, if you're watching a high bit rate movie you better not try to multi task.

    To be honest, all android tablets will have this issue in specific circumstances. It's not 100% of the time, and it hasn't ruined my experience.

    Well the nexus 10 is the most powerful tablet out of all of these, it's a-15 chips are so much more powerful than the tegra and exynos, and nexus 10 has the best gpu out of all of these, so I would go for the nexus 10

    Tegra3 Nexus 7 is not that bad really, quite nice. Sure, Nexus 10 may be great but 7 inch is a very nice size. If you want to try something this year Nexus 7 has been quite decent for me.
