Finally about to become a proud owner...

Post by SpongeBuell » Sat Jun 12, 2004 10:06 pm

of a GP32! I've wanted one for about a year now, and I finally had the money to order one. I'm going on vacation in a week, so the timing will (hopefully) be perfect.

Any favorite emulators in mind?

Crap. I cannot get it in time for the trip because when my dad ordered it, he put the wrong expiration date in, so the bank reported it as a fraudulent thing, and I cannot get it in time. :cry: Oh well, I guess I can order it again today so it could come in when I get back.

I thought about the zodiac briefly, but I figured that it was more expensive and the emulation (which I would mostly use anyway) would go up to a SNES on both anyway, maybe GBA on a zodiac.

yeah, both are real nice, although I think a portable computer would be nicer.

How about the ApeXtreme or the MoMA Eve. They both look awesome the ApeXtreme has a DVD burner in it but it's going to cost around $500 I think anyways. But the MoMA Eve has windows xp built into it and has wi-fi capabilities along with being allowed to download stuff.
Here's a link for ApeXtreme

The thing is that the moma eve really doesn't seem to be that great of a computer, although it isn't horrible, and the fact that the screen is bent and can not fold makes it harder to be considered portable to me (basically since this feature increases the height quite a bit)

Yea I wasn't sure about the case design but you can also make a different one and put it in that. But what do you think of the ApeXtreme it seems a little bulky but it does have a DVD burner. Sorry I thought the Apextreme was a portable but it would be a could system to turn into a protable. I heard that GamePark is going to release a GP64 in 2007 or 2008. It will probably be pretty cool.

The screen on the Moma eve detaches from the rest of the body to make it more portable.
