I'm all for the pandora!
the PowerVR SGX looks really powerful!
and the big touchscreen+keyboard is perfect to develop directly on the machine :D (if there is any compilator...)
anyway... I'll get one as soon as it's available!
only downside will be the amount of job required to push it to its limits!!

Both the NES and the Atari VCS hw are on loan, so I'll have to say "everything we use, 0e".

sauli: dude, those suck electricity like an aluminum foundry...

They suck electricity, and worse... they're full of spider webs. I pity the guy that has to clear those cobwebs out to replace a part.

Fun fact: The English people are the most arachnophobic nation on earth despite having no (native or naturalized) dangerous spiders.

i'm interested in the pandora, like i was in the gp2x. and like the gp2x it's cheap: no add-ons, carts, mods.

however, atari still is nr 1 for me; can't let go. too many oldschool code to think about atm :)) you can pick up some oldschool hardware for next to nothing and dev using emu on your old outdated non-crysis-playing pc.
