i would say a SNES would be good you dont even have to cut the board just desolder the power and attach batteries. you coud just use a gamecube screen for it.

the 2600 is good because you can get it pretty small and get a smaller portable :)

Yeah, most can be really simple as long as you don't try to mod them too much. I'd say that the playstation is pretty simple too, but I'm not sure if that's the best for a beginner

Even though I haven't ever made a SNESp I think it would be pretty easy to make. Just get a 7.2v RC car battery pack from radio shack for power. And for controlls just get some panel mount pushbuttons and an NES d-pad and wire to the snes controll board. Basically just mod the case.
