The ipad is the comparable Apple device for the HD+. The ipad mini is the comparable Apple device for the HD. Point being, LOTS of folks spend that much on comparable devices.
Not saying they should, just that they do.
Not sure why the Apple device is the appropriate comparison for the question at hand, getting GooglePlay on a Nook Tablet, since getting Google Play on an apple device would be quite a trick. For the Nook Tablet that can only get GooglePlay access by rooting the existing system or booting an alternate system, the Nook HD would seem to be the closest analogue with GooglePlay built in.
