I don't think this is going to matter to the billions of people who have never seen a desktop or video game. Or at least not seen one as advanced as you can get on the cheapest Android tablet. In much of the world they are dealing with late 90's hardware and XP at best. Apps and performance, display and responsiveness are not as good as you can get on a $25 Android tablet. India alone is going to give away one billion of these tablets to students in the next ten years. Probably sooner.
