Need suggestions for a tablet I can root in the $150 range

I played with some stuff at Best Buy last night. Toshiba's eXcite Go was very fast but the low-res screen was off-putting. The LG G Pad 7 was nice as well although a little slower. Both are relatively new and I can't find any solid info on rooting either.

I'm fine with a dual core model as long as it's HD. Being able to root and install Adaway and a few other root-requiring apps.

There's CyanogenMod versions for the Galaxy Tab and Kindle Fire, which tells me they have active developer communities working on making them more useful.

Any suggestions? I'd prefer to buy this in a local brick and mortar store for simple exchange options of needed prior to rooting.

I wound up with a $130 Nexus 7 16 GB from http://www.ebay.com/itm/311011741339 I charged it up and didn't even use it prior to unlocking the bootloader and rooting it with the toolkit from http://wugfresh.com Part of the root installs TWRP. I booted the stock system once more to download a nightly of CyanogenMod 11 and the Google Apps archive. It's fast and stable with a bright screen and great battery life. I love it!

Samsung has a tablet that was recommended to me by a local salesperson who says it is faster and easier than the Kindle HTC(?) - same price ($199) but was $20 cheaper ($179) than the Kindle when I was looking at them last week.
