Consoles are always behind PC, as PC are constantly evolving and Consoles are Static for many years and must be designed with sale price in mind. If they are too expensive, no one will buy them. PC's on the other hand, you can make it as powerful as you want.
However, the gaming market is mostly with the consoles.
And Nintendo would be wise to make the U the most powerful console out there. Cause, in a few years, when the U is coming into it's prime, the PS3 and the 720 will be out and we can assume will dwarf the U in terns of Specs once again.
It's just the nature of things.
But unless there is some new breakthru in Graphics and such, it probably won't matter all that much. Depends on how things go and what's popular and such.
