I've been looking at the Nexus 10 myself, but I don't know anyone who owns one. I'd expect it to be an excellent choice, but the proof is always in the physical device.

I believe the N10's ppi is actually higher than that of the latest iPads.

And refurbished iPad 3s are now much cheaper since the introduction of the iPad 4 with a faster processor and a typically arbitrary dock change. Perhaps not reason enough to buy one if you're already put off, but at least a viable alternative.

Meanwhile, I'll probably be going with the Galaxy Note II, partly because I like micro SD slots and removable batteries.

But if a later iteration of the Nexus 10 brings the price down in a year, I'll probably buy this year's model as well.

For me, the screens of the Nexus 10 and iPad iterations 3-4 will trump additional perks until every reasonably high-end device on the market has at least the same ppi.
