If you're interested in snagging the original Nexus 7 from Google, circa 2012, then Groupon has a deal for you for both the 16 GB and the 32 GB WiFi-only variants. The 16 GB is now selling for $119.99 on the deals site while the 32 GB edition is just a tad more for $124.99, which may be the better option for users. To sweeten the deal, the tablet comes bundled with a travel cover.
The Nexus 7 runs on a quad-core NVIDIA's Tegra 3 processor and comes with a 90-day parts and labor warranty.
Since it's release, Google has already updated the slate with newer hardware inside the 2013 Nexus 7, which is priced starting at $229 on the Play store. The flip cover itself costs an added $49.99 for this year's tablet through Google, bringing the total package price to $278.99.
If you want a solid tablet on the cheap, the O.G. Nexus 7 from last year may be a good value. Groupon says that there is only a "limited time remaining" to claim this deal.
Do you intend on picking up the original Nexus 7? At $125, the 2012 Nexus 7 may be a good companion for reading or watching Netflix or YouTube videos in bed.
