Bought the 199 one from staples..also 40 buck leather case and 50 dollars plan in case the glass cracks or breaks..Heard some people had glass problems so i shelled out 300 bucks altogether..did i mess up much.......i'm in my 60's and fairly dumb:(

If it's the 16GB, that's fine, pretty good if the 32GB. I personally wouldn't have gone with the glass warranty, but if you think it's good insurance, that's fine too. The case is a bit much, you could have probably got a good one for $15-20 on Amazon, or a smaller mobile/computer store. Still, $300 for the whole thing is great. I've had mine since is came out, spent about that much (maybe a bit more) and have no regrets. Enjoy! PS As for RPG games, I haven't found one that's pure Android. But there are good ports like Final Fantasy III which is a bit pricey.

thank youttomm1946
:P would have still costed you more for an iPad without accessories ^_^ and for that reason alone i can not see your purchase a s a loss. Google products always have good value!

I think you may have found a case cheaper online like ebay, but its always exciting getting your new product so don't fret too much..

Exactly! Freaking $430 for an iPad Mini 32 GB! You kidding me? And now they're thinking of making an $800 one? That's damn good laptop territory right there!

I got the 32 GB version ($250, plus shipping, from Google), plus $15 for a pretty nice case with a "smart" cover, and $7 or so for 2 invisible screen protectors (might get more).

I'm not regretting it since it was either this or the new iPod touch, and that would've been $300 alone lol. I'm freaking loving the larger screen (especially since I'm using it for drawing). Just gotta get use to carrying it outside of my pants pockets :P.

Friend bought a case off ebay for $5 and has magnets too get the screen to shutoff, so returnz case?

The nex 7 itself is a bargain however.

I payed $270 for mine on ebay + $30 shipping + ~$40 custom fees.

 

:(

 

I honestly couldn't find any cheaper option that would actually ship to my country.

40$ for the leather case might bit a lot.

I paid 250 for 32gb and 15 for leather smart case thing that shuts off screen when closed.

The case on my Nexus 10 was £13 and seems good so far, it has open/close wake/sleep function and everything.

thats good and if it makes you feel better here in europe that unfortunately is the normal price of nexus 7 ( 230-240 euros for the 16gb )

Your fine. I had an N7 with a silicone case and screen protector. Shelled out the same price in total.

That much for a case is expensive and I probably wouldn't have gotten the insurance. But I'm not prone to dropping my stuff.

Don't buy a cheap leather case for it, get an otterbox.
