use of "be it ever"


From a native speaker’s perspective, do the following sentences sound natural:

Thanks a million!


Sounds all right to me. The only thing I would say is that it has an archaic ring about it and the more ‘modern’ prosaic wording would be: even though it is/was. There is at the back of my mind an old song that has lines such as: Home, home, be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home. I think if you do use this construction as you have, with ‘computer’, you are saying this in a slightly jocular way - referring back to the song.
