worth getting a nook color for 110 to flash into a android tablet?

Yes or no?
Has anyone ever flashed one before?

I had a Nook Color and put CM on it. Ran _ok_, but it felt sluggish overall. Usable, yes, but I'd save a bit more and get a Nook Tablet or something else with better specs.

This. Bought one for $100, threw in a 32GB microSD and a wired keyboard...and even with the tablet as barebones (yet still functional) as possible, was still sluggish under regular use, even running non-HD videos in some cases. So glad I was able to sell it without losing any money.

Did you both overclock? Just curious if that made any noticeable difference or not.

I kept it at 1.2Ghz - but honestly, the difference wasn't too noticeable. I couldn't even get a higher overclock without the tablet freezing and/or overheating.
