    Either one would probably do what you want a tablet for. So far both have been receiving updates to the latest version of Android. Will that continue or will the Gen 1 be left behind? Also the battery and all the other components on a Gen 1 are going to be older and will probably fail a year or so sooner. No way of foretelling the future, all you can do is consider the odds.:)

    That would be my choice. Guess I should have been a salesman instead of an engineer.:) Hope you find something in your price range.

    James,

    Your tablet may not come with the instruction, and even if it does about all they cover is turning the tablet On/Off.
    While you're waiting, click this link to the Nexus Help Center and you'll find tons of advice on the care & feeding of your new (To You.) tablet.
