I’d still rather play Minecraft on my gaming desktop than my iPad.

I would hope so. However, I would imagine that the iPad would be a tad more portable, if you want to play (read, surf, whatever) while not at your desk.

That's always been the trade-off -- raw power vs. portability.

My response to that has always been: “I sit at a desk and stare at a screen for 8 hours a day for living. I don’t want to come home to continue doing it.”

Since I married last year, I’ve found I spend a lot less time behind the joystick and a lot more time with my wife either outdoors or working around the house.

Since Intel’s announced they’re not making enthusiast-marketed processors after this year, and the market is likely to start moving more toward OEM and consoles, I’ll likely hang up my hobbyist belt to focus more on gunsmithing, gardening, or fishing as I get older.
