That, and this whole Nexus business is giving me a personality disorder ;)

Maybe some of you advanced types can help a simple man out. I am looking at all the opinions on the web about the currently leaked specs and am seeing some indicate disappointment with the 1.2 mhz processor and the GPU. One even stated that the GPU is the same one used in the original Nexus phone from like 2007 and that doesnt sound too cutting edge to me.
I am trying to figure out if this is A- True and B- something that I will even notice.
I wasnt too upset about it being a 1.2 processor because I honestly couldnt tell much difference in my HTC Incredibles processor and the one in the Bionic I returned (partially because I wanted this Nexus instead).
Just curious because I am not seeing much in this thread or others here about this being a big deal, and I would think this board would be blowing up if there really was a very dated GPU in what is supposed to be a bleeding edge device.
In the article I was reading, they were basically saying that this Nexus was supposed to be the new IPhone killer (I couldnt care less, just want a good phone to last me til next upgrade)and that even with this bad ass screen, it wouldnt be able to utilize its power because of the GPU mainly, but also because of the processor.
I am likely to get this nexus, or one of the other phones releasing in the next month or so, but am hoping some of you can clear this up for me. Also, there is the possibility that this is still speculation as the "official" specs arent announced, right?
But I will comment about the 1.2 Ghz processor... I think you will be hard pressed to see a difference between a 1.0, a 1.2 and a 1.5 Ghz processor under most "typical" conditions and uses. If you are a power user and really load your phone down, you may see a bit of a performance increase at the top end as well as a quicker battery drain, but those are just my guesses.
Oh, I am a phone geek, I will definitely be here and watching all over the web. Part of the reason I returned my Bionic was because the screen lacked any WOW factor and that is a big deal to me (The main reason was the horrendous camera)
So, I was hoping that the screen is really bad ass, even better than retina. And I imagine it will be and this GPU talk will be something I wont even be able to notice, but since I saw it mentioned, I figured I'd ask.
The other thing I am excited about is the fact that the Nexus went with a 5mp camera instead of just trying to max out the mp number to trick people into thinking more means better. I am hoping this 5mp camera is an indication they went for a quality sensor as opposed to the quantity factor.
Time will tell
