I like the "WTBuild" topic - that should be official!

Umm, no. The idea is to make someone else a portable. I don't want one. ;)

I'd be interested but would want to know how much $ without parts and how much $ with parts (I have a mini, fc-twin, v1, and 4 brand new ps1 screens).

No offense, but I would like to see a finished SNESp that you've made before I committed. I have all this stuff to build one myself, but I never seem to have the time, patience, or workspace to get it done.

Okay so here's the deal. I've never actually completed an actuall portable. I have however done various other electronics projects and have built a full-sized MAME arcade cabinet, and am in the process of building a replica Zakk Wylde Les Paul guitar. I can assure you a quality job. I know I can do these systems mentioned above and have full confidence that you would be happy with the final result.

All would have custom designed vacuum-formed cases done with a commercial vacuum-forming machine.

Here's a rough price list (including psone LCD, 5400mAH Li-Poly battery, misc. parts, and labor):

NESp: $250
SNESp: $400
PSONEp: $400
Gamecube: $600 (This would require different batteries)

PM me and we can go over prices in more detail.

Scratch that "commercial" vacuum forming machine. My dad just informed me that the trades building at the university he teaches at just got rid of it. So cases will be made on my own forming machine.

I had someone ask me if I would do custom case work as well. I will. Just PM me with a query and I'll get back to you.
