OK. I'll drop it then - even though you're making a horrendous exaggeration about the power drain, declaring that since it's X86 it would have to ship with and have support for Windows, assuming that the latest games would have to run on it (but not making the same assumption to ARM) - I understand. Apparently an X86 handheld would be held to a higher requirements standard than ARM.Well, we'd lose too much in my opinion.
Android games, NDS, Optimizations and our full Pandora software library, with all the small optimizations made in the last years to work properly on our little handheld.
And we'd get a system where the software is not much optimized for power usage or similar, since people simply would buy a new PC and don't care about power usage.
There definitely is too much we'd lose and too little we'd gain here.
I rather have a small and good community (as we are now) than thousands of buyers who would be disappointed because Win8 and their latest games would suck the battery dry in a couple of hours.
