HI there Teddydog, Welcome to the forum and glad you found us. There's a ton of info here so do a search to see if your question isn't already answered somewhere but if you still can't find it then post your questions in the appropriate board. The original Nexus 7 you have is still a very capable machine. It originally was introduced at the end of June 2012 so even if you bought it on day one you have a ways to go before it's 2 years old. Should give you a few more years of use if you take care of it and still runs all Android Apps just fine. Merry Christmas!
