I'm getting a nexus 7 and am wondering if there is any point in rooting it? I understand what it does and what it allows me to do but I can't seem to find any actual benefits of having root access. Like what sort of apps need root access?
If you think i should root my nexus then how do you do it? Any tips?

I would recommend that you DO NOT root it. You can gain some nice features but leave yourself open for malware, no software can protect you, so security will be really lacking.
