Bought one on Friday as a birthday present to myself (only way to get something you actually want). Walked into a NL branch in Papanui (Chch) but they only had a display model. The guy directed me to North wood where they had 5 in stock.
My first tablet and so far I'm liking it. Never wanted an iPad due to size/weight - the Nexus 7 seems ideal.
Runs very quick although not convinced about Chrome, may revert to Opera.
