1 - You'll start out with about 13gb free. For me 16gb is fine. I have 80 or 90 apps, a couple of Nandroids backups and have about 10gb still free. You could also root and use an OTG cable for more storage if you need it. The only reason I started looking at OTG cables a few days ago was a game I was thinking about buying. The Bard I think. The high res files are 3.5gb.
2 - The deciding factor for me, besides the high specs, was future updates. Being a Google flagship device, we'll get the latest before anyone else.
3 - Nope. Even after RMA'ing one, and waiting on delivery on the new one, I don't regret it for a minute. I love this tablet.
4 - Ran great for me on stock. I don't see any need to root if you don't want to run custom rom's or use something like Titanium Backup or another app that needs root. Unless like I stated previously, you want to use OTG and Stickmount
. If you don't want to root, you can still use OTG and Nexus Media Importer
. The difference is you can't write to the flash drive, or whatever, with the Media Importer.
5 - Can't answer since I've never owned the Infinity. You might check this thread though. Anyone OWN both Asus Infinity & Nexus 10?
