:lol:
If you want a decent looking portable its going to be $300+.

EDIT: :facepalm: This is only getting better. Each of those zelda games is around $20.

Wow you're willing to pay about $140 less than it costs to make one for the parts alone.

Nice. :lol:

For a working portable expect to pay around $400-$600 dollars depending on the quality. Your money is good for a bricked portable, maybe... :lol:

No, the parts would still be worth more. Maybe if there were no batteries. Just console, screen, and case. Then he'd have enough money. If it was bricked.

N64+controller+expansion pack: $20
Battery/protection circuit/charger: $50
Screen: $50
Case: $10

So with the abslolute minimum cost of just parts alone for a portable would be $130. The work that goes into a portable will be anywhere between $200-$500.

$350 and up is more reasonable.
