Update November 23, 2014:The incredible Samsung Galaxy S5 for $1 deal is now live at Best Buy for Black Friday 2014. iPad Air 2 deals are coming and we suspect that will sell out quickly.

If you already have a Chromecast, this is a much better deal than the Google buy a Nexus 7 and a Chromecast and get $35.00 Play Store credit.
CNET named the Nexus 7 (2103) the best Android tablet for its sharp full HD screen, fast performance, lightweight, and great value at $229.99. The only down fall is that it lacks a microSD expansion slot. At .66 lbs its slightly lighter than the iPad mini.
The Nexus 7 has a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro system on chip with a quad-core Krait CPU and a single-core Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM and 802.11 a/b/g/n (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 (including Bluetooth Smart support), and a GPS.
