I have found myself browsing through these forums and to some degree obsessing over my recent purchase of the SP3. Its to be expected. Its not a cheap device, there are more powerful and different form factors available, and I have 30 days to decide if it is the right thing for me. With all the posts about underwhelming performance and possible misconceptions, I thought it would be great to start a post about the benefits and what we as a community really appreciate about the SP3, what we will be or have been using our new machines for, and what really wows and works best for us. I have to say, growing up with BBS's and green screen IBMs booted off floppy disk, this device is pretty amazing. For perspective, the first ever consumer available laptop: Released 1985 Cost: $1899 -4.77 MHz Intel Processor -256KB of RAM -Internal 3,5" floppy drive, 720 KB -External 5,25" floppy drive, 360 KB -Screen Resolution Graphic mode: 640×200 Text mode: 80×25 -Weight: over 9lbs Compare that to the SP3, released just 25 years later, and I cant help but be amazed at both the progress of technology and the, almost, overwhelming speed and ease in which we are able to utilize and access information. The raw computational power available to create and design all forms of art, music, and infrastructure on just 1.76lbs of glass, magnesium, and silicon. And yes, Minecraft does seem to play just fine on the SP3 at a reasonable 30-40fps. But again, your mileage may very and one device is not for everyone, etc.
