One of my favorite handheld game systems of all time, the GP2X F100.

It's not just great because it's really good at emulating early systems (which it is), but because of the great, original homebrew stuff that came out for it. Many of these games are -really good!

There were later models that had better screens, touch screens and better batteries, but the fact that this used common AA batteries means that while the battery life was somewhat limited in one context, because you can just quickly swap the batteries out, the battery life is effectively unlimited, as long as you have AAs around.

Also, with this setup, you'll never have to worry about a custom battery failing that's a PITA, or nearly impossible to replace.

@paradroyd I think I still have one lying around. What is the best net resource of software?

@yesbait Exactly the same as it was when the system was new. Openhandhelds.org:
