I cracked my screen on my orignal nexus 7.(still works sorta).I can buy the screen and replace it.Its really not that hard.I already replaced the usb port on it .Which i need to do again.So it will cost me about $60 the parts.

Now im thinking about just getting a new 2013 model with 2gb of ram and a faster cpu.

IME of Android devices, the more RAM the better; the CPU upgrade I got last time (went from 1Ghz to dual core 1Ghz) didn't make much real difference. IMO Android app memory management is in the Windows 95 area of proficiency, meaning that RAM is at a premium (for the same reasons that it was an issue with W95).

Nexus uses stock android though which is way more snappy and smooth than any other "flavored" version. I'm going to assume that you only use the tablet while you're taking a dump to browse the internet or read books or magazines so If I were you I would just replace the screen as a new one will be close to the $200 mark and the performance upgrade isn't worth it imo. There are tablets with similar specs which are priced much lower and you can probably install any android version you want so you might want to check them out.

LOL Meats you hit it right on the head thats just what i use it for plus i may need to go in the hospital for a while aand i want to have it there for streaming netflix and amazons Prime

.Anway I am gonna replace the screen soon and let my fiance have it.Because i went to Best Buy yetserday and got a LG - G Pad 7.0 Tablet - 8GB - Black

and so far after playing with it for anbout 8 hours ive found it holds a charge much longer than my Nexus 7 and charges much faster and does everything the nexus does only its smoothier which is probbably because it's brand new.I dont think the screen looks quite as nice but it its still crisp and clear.Plus after comparing it side by side with the nexus 7 2013 its just a better deal.The Nexus 7 (2013) feels really cheap comppared to the LG

Lol man that's a pretty good tablet for the price, nice and simple for our kind of use ;)

I got a Nook HD on last years cyber monday for $79! I like the little sucker a lot, great screen resolution for reading books but the OS is horrible, Barnes and Nobles store experience sucks and book info is horrible since it won't even list number of pages! Though I went in knowing it but since it has an SD card slot I'm going to install android kitkat soon and just download the Nook and Kindle app.

Hope they have free wifi on the hospital man and I hope it isn't anything serious.

Take care man!
