Well, be careful what you wish for. Mo money, mo problems, usualy.Oh boy, I wish I had so much money available to do the Pyra properly... they have and still don't seem to be able to use it properly.

Yeah, but the difference here is that Pyra & Atari are both crowd/community funded, and the BIG 3 make their own funds, and can waste or make them as they see fit. So when they don't do things properly, it's a blip on the radar for their share holders and not much more. When I look at the Pyra an it's documented history, we can all see where the money has gone, and I often wonder how we are still going to be honest, but that falls squarely at ED's feet, for stretching the funds as far as they will go(and making up a lot of the difference on his own). Then to see how Atari has pretty much pissed away or stolen 3 million, and you can see how being transparent in a project like this is key to community trust, and Atari has no clue on either subject, sadly.Even Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft don't always do things properly.
Probably not. Neither AMD nor intel's mainstream architecture lends itself well to scaling down to ~2W where you need to be for handheld use.I wonder if the AMD R1000 line could be under clocked and core reduced far enough to fit a fanless handheld thermal envelope....
