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.

For what you're planning to use the tablet for a Gig should be fine.

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.
