and possibly having to go from 720p (listed resolution of the screen) to something below 720p in order to get your game to run undocked is pretty significant. this may be the pc snob in me talking. most people may not notice the difference between 600p and 720p on a screen that small

probably. i think this is standard "why won't nintendo pony up for decent hardware just this one time?!" discussion. i do plan on getting one if i can get some games like bravely default, dragon quest, and other jrpgs previously relegated to handhelds. and it's nintendo. they'll be fine
