You are comparing 1080p+ android/ios tablets that start at $500 against windows atom tablets with 720p displays that start at $400-600. For textbook/ebook/pdf viewing their is no reason to go for anything more than the 4:3 aspect ratio ipad. For multimedia, you are better off with a higher resolution screen though the atom is actually to use 1080p video flawlessly without other programs running in the background. All they have to do is release atom tablets with 1080p screens to compete with android tablets in multimedia though they will never win the book replacement battle against apple.

So heres a question. I bought a nexus 7 at a staples for 199. Its the 8 gig model. I also purchased a replacement plan, in which I can return it if anything "goes wrong".

Should I return it soon, and pay the extra 40 bux to upgrade to this model? having 16 gigs of space is the more appealing part of it, but I have no idea how much faster this thing is without browser benchmarks. Firefox for example, is just sluggish and laggy on my N7. Also, there are a few stutters in general when it comes to smooth performance.
