Cleaning up my place, found this, I bought in fire sale 2011 I think, charger, keyboard, thought it was a steal lol, installed some custom rom but it's still ridiculously slow, 1gb ram, some $50 chinese tablet can crush it, but still I don't like to throw out something I spent money on.

There's overclocking and new custom roms (I guess a lot of people are like me because this thing has way too much support over 9 years) but even after that, I have other tablets, I'm thinking using it as screen saver picture frame type of thing is best use

any other ideas appreciated.

I quite like them for music players, though most of the cheapo ones I have dealt with have had nice audio.

Beyond that do you need a shed/workshop one that you can read pictures/PDF on and not care so very much if you crush it.

that's a good idea actually, I don't have a workshop but I could use it to display written instructions to go along with video tutorials I usually follow in my mods, that and a picture/video frame/clock are probably best uses for me, could be good in the kitchen if I cooked anything complex but I don't.
