    So I'm thinking about getting a n7. It was either it or the Chromebook. So I chose the n7 cause its cooler. Anyways,I'm primarily going to be usuing it as a gaming tablet,and maybe some occasional paper typing. So I want to know how the tegra 3 processor fairs up to the n10's dual core one. I've been told the n10 has a better chip then the n7 but the nvidia chip has a more dedicated dev. team that makes games specificly for it. Any feedback would be appreciated thanks.

    My one x is better then your one x!!

    I'm not sure about this, but while gaming, I believe the Nexus 7 can activate more than one processor just for the game. Also, it uses a lower-powered fifth processor for casual tasks. I game on this beauty, it can handle anything from Angry Birds to Shadow gun: Deadzone. Deadzone is the best online multiplayer game I've played on it. It's basically an online third-person shooter. For your typing tasks, you should buy a keyboard case and an OTG cable.

    It's awesome for games. I also use it for Shadowgun Deadzone. I really like the 7 inch size for games, too. Easier to hold.

    There's all kinds of game emulators, SNES, N64, Fpsxe PS1 emulator as well.
    You could play Final Fantasy 7 on this thing with a wireless PS3 controller.

    I love them both on my one x but it lags a few times with full visuals on gta3. Asphalt 7 works fine tho. Say,what case do you guys have.? I'm thinking between the seidio active surface or the gumm case one(tire track case)

    I've been EXTREMELY impressed with Shadowgun Deadzone, probably played about 5 Hours on it on Nexus 7 so far.

    Here's what made it even better: Root the Nexus, so that you can use ToggleBar app to hide the navigation bar. This way, in High settings you get proper full screen gameplay, rather than the weird scaling that is done to fit the navigation bar. That is, proper 720p multiplayer gaming at High settings, quite pretty.

    I have a 10" tablet, a 4.8" phone and the N7. For straight up game playing on the device, the N7 wins hands down.

    Not only does it support the games that are enhanced for Tegra, but the size of the tablet is the best tradeoff between large screen size, while not being fatiguing to hold for extended periods of time.

    It's excellent for finger friendly games like Angry Birds and for racing games like Mini Moror Racing.

    I first got a cheapo BearMotion case which was fine, but the right side lip (along the bezel) doesn't fit quite right, so it bulges out. So I took the advice of some others on this forum and ordered this Amazon.com: rooCASE Ultra-Slim (Black) Vegan Leather Folio Case for Google Nexus 7 Tablet (Built-in sleep / wake feature) Thinest Folio Case - 17mm - 3 Day Promotional Price: Computers & Accessories, and let me tell you, it is niiice. Fits perfectly, very slim, feels really nice, and the smartcover function works flawlessly.

    "Vegan Leather" ! You gotta love that name. I hope the marketer who came up with that term got a raise and promotion. Sarcastic marketing in the tech field is never a bad idea.

    Yeah, that's the only dumb thing about the case. "Vegan" in this case means that although no animals were killed directly, the environment probably took a hit. I wonder if anyone advertises "organic" Nexus 7 cases.

    This is going to be my gaming device, bigger screen and more storage space than my Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon plus the Tegra 3 support for Tegra Zone games will be nice to have. Glad to see its receiving positive comments. I was going to go N10, but just can't justify the extra $150 right now since adding the GN2.

    There seems to be a lot of criticism of the Tegra3 but at least on Nexus7 it seems fine to me.

    I'm generally a casual user though I like higher end games like SG Deadzone. Which is so far the only "mobile" game I've really played much of.

    That is absolutely the best game I've ever played. Also, I tend to purchase games, each with a sperate category. For example, I have a sports game, racing, shooting and casual.
