Honestly, tegra 2 was underpowered when it was first released. In 2012 there's no excuse to release a tegra 2 device at anything over the $200 pricepoint.

I'd say either move up to the 7.0 plus for $50 and get the extra power (and further future proof yourself) or get a a kindle fire/nook tablet for $50 less if you don't need the added processing power.
I agree with your assessment.
