This guy is selling them for $350 each. He makes them by hand, and does it in his spare time. Right now he's making a portable N64 and a portable Gamecube. He's done a portable atari and some other ones too, they're on his website (I can't remember it right now).

I think it's about the thickness of the GD-ROM.

That pic looks like the form factor for the portable screen from the Sony PSOne as the basis for the system. If so, it's both small, yet incredibly bulky for a handheld system.

That portable dc looks very cumbersome and seems as if it would be hard to play..I wouldn't pay that much for a portable...

[nods] I've actually used that device...he had a bunch of his hand-built portables set up on display at the Classic Gaming Expo back in August. He's an interesting guy to talk with.
