    Might want to wait for the next model:
    " One can only wonder if the same will happen to the next-generation Nexus 10, the one that will presumably have an 8-core graphics processing unit and a quad-core CPU.

    We already know of prospective buyers that have decided, after months of all these ordering difficulties, to just wait for the upgrade. The updated tablet is set for MWC 2013 launch (Mobile World Congress in February)."

    Gotta be honest I've got 1st gen nexus 7 rooted and trinity kerneld.I'm running it at 1700mhz and 596 gpu and its superfast and renders instantly.I. know the nexus 10 uses the samsung rather than nvidia chip,but for a tablet that is so open sourcedregarding rooting and being able to overclock,I'm not sure if there is ever a right time to buy.

    I always check out the trinity thread at xda. I did try to join once but got fed up trying to join with the ridiculous 10 post aand back to 1 if mods thought your posts were not interesting enough or not in a subsection of their liking.Now I just email the devs if I have a question...morfic always replies and its easier than trying to join.

    I have rooted the Nexus 10. There are ROMs available for it. I have overclocked it. There are lots of Kernels available. Even Morfic has a Kernel for Nexus 10:

    1. Doesn't mean that quad core processor is faster than a dual core processor. Nexus 10 dual core processor is the fastest on the market so far, unless something new comes out in future.

    2. Always, the computers, laptops, desktops, tablets, phones and so forth will be faster and better in future. Just wait another 2 months or 6 months, and you will be able to get a better one. Well the waiting game will never be over, as there will be always a better one in future.

    3. Rumors have it that Google will have a quad core Nexus 10 in Mobile World Congress in February, 2013. Rumors have it, though don't hold your breath.

    Something wrong with better/cheaper? Your #2 seems to support your #3, btw.

    No, you got it wrong. At this rate you will never buy anything until Kingdom Come, because the better/cheaper is always around the corner.

    True. Even if you buy it at launch date, in less than 5 months there will be something better. Unless you stick to a brand and wait until they refresh the model series such as the Samsung Galaxy S phones. :D

    It will be a good purchase, i can-t believe Google will replace the Nexus 10 so fast, probably the Nexus 7 but i DO NOT SEE the Nexus 10 being replaced so fast. Google is not that stupid, even their Nexus phones only gets 1 update every year.

    Thank Noob,

    Truly agree. Even Nexus 10 is not a true replacement for Nexus 7, due to screen size, they meet different markets. Nexus 7 is good to take in the crapper, while one is doing the most important thing in their life. :D

    Best regards,

    xda has a reputation of being run by experts who are bashing users, especially new ones, who might have missed some super-expert advice 3000 posts earlier.

    So many people so many opinions.

    My wife prefers to use her home laptop. She stopped using the tablet. For her a tablet has little benefits over her smartphone. She gave her old laptop away when she got a tablet, she regretted it so much I decided to do a test with her Asus 300T (Transformer) and use it for business

    For business I like the superior battery life and low weight/small dimensions. Also the combo for internet/e-mail stuff of keyboard and touch screen, really makes a mouse reduncdant. I only use a mouse (one with a zipcord cable, so no fuss with cables ) when doing presentations/reports editing, I store all my data on a 1TB USB-drive (which gets its electricity from the keyboard).

    Besided the little uncomfort of switching on/off my outlook assistant (forwards all mail to my gmail account), I can't think of better device (PC replacement) for someone who is on the road a lot as a tablet with a keyboard.

    Hi Noob
    You could be right about the some, but being as there are nearly 5 million members on XDA with the majority being as helpful as they can or could be in replies posts.

    Take Care
