Reportedly, Nintendo is planning on selling the Switch for $300, at a profit, which is concerning me because even the Wii U with its "massively outdated" hardware sold at a loss, at least originally. I was never expecting this thing to be as powerful as the Xbox One or PS4, but its going to piss off a lot of people (maybe even including developers) if its going to be halfway between the Wii U and Xbox One in terms of power as people have been predicting. The ram amount falls directly in line with this (4 GB) although I think the Xbox One and PS4 had a ridiculous amount of ram compared to everything else. Nintendo seems to be much better at conserving ram for the operating system though, partially do to the fact that not as much is happening in the background, so I believe they'll reserve 1GB for ram, leaving 3GB for games, which I believe no Xbox One or PS4 game really uses more than (as in you would just have the game load more often, which could potentially be less of a problem with cartridges). I'm much more worried about GPU performance, although that hasn't been revealed. Nintendo is capable of making good looking games on their (as of the Wii) more limited hardware, but other developers, not quite. I was laughing to myself about how people were mystified Doom 4 ran so well (1080p, 60fps, next to no downgraded graphics) on the "weak" (according to the PC master race) Xbox One and PS4. It's just that Id knows how to program a good game.
I went way off topic... If the NES "Classic" is actually more powerful than the New 3DS though, than I'm astonished. I mean, why?

I guess that has a lot to do with it. HDMI (as discussed in the thread with the idea I came up with) probably has a lot to do with it.
Wait, so this isn't? I'm confused.
