GBA, Turbo Express, Sega nomad, Neo Geo pocket Color. Although I played my NGPC way more then my nomad due to the nomad needing a power supply (or a lot of batteries, but no way...) and that just doesnt work with me when Im needing somehting portable. I don't have a Turbo Express but I know all about it an I expect a lot from it and it's great hardware. GBA obviously is the first pick because of the nicest looking games, new stuff happening on it, plus now it's backlit.

Although I wish I spent more time with my portables like my Game Boy Color, my Game Gear, and my Neo Geo Pocket Color, the fact of the matter is that I personally find it too difficult of a decision to make. Sure, the GBA has the largest software library when you count all of the other games from its forerunners, but Nintendo keeps their systems rather simple. The Turbo Express is perhaps one of the finest pieces of work if you can get one fully equipped, and the Nomad was no slouch either with the ability to hook it up to a tv as a portable Genesis. However, I remember back in middle school when classmates would bring their Game Gears with the TV tuner allowing us to watch Knight Rider. In addition, I cann't forget the fact that I have saved many hours and blisters by transferring points from my SNK vs. Capcom equipped NGPC to my Capcom vs. SNK equipped Dreamcast. Who can forget this forerunner of multi-console connectivity? As you can see, it is quite a difficult task for me to pick a favorite/best portable system especially when there has been very little graphical improvement when compared to consoles in the past 10-15 years.

The GBA. Simply because I am a fanbo.......I mean simply because I can play all my NES, Spectrum, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance and soon C64 & SMS games on it.

I do love the Game Gear, Nomad and Neo Geo pocket mono/colour though.

My PCE GT (Jap TG Express for those that dont know) probably, especially since my first GB was sold years ago & I have no Tetris now :cry: , followed by my GBA & then my GG (I got the adaptor to run my MS games on it). My Lynx is possibly on the list if I'm near a plug otherwise after 2 minutes use the batteries are dead :wink: , my Game.Com dont get much use only came with 2 games (but for a fiver down the car boot I cant really complain)

The GBA has the better games of my favorite two handhelds but the GP32 has a lot more power. Sporting a 110 mhz proccesor (as opposed to the GBA's 4 mhz proccesor) its homebrew is the best
