    I'm gonna go with the SP. I just love the way it feels and looks. I wish the GameBoy Light came out in America. That would have been great.

    Neo Geo Pocket Color all the way for me. The several very good exclusive games (especially the pocket fighters) combined with the awesome control stick makes it very hard to put down.

    If the original GBA had a backlight, it'd be it. The GBA SP is great, but the GBA is much more comfortable.

    But, yeah, I think the GBA is one of the best.

    I would need to say the Tiger Game.com, how could you not love a handheld from 1997 with a touch screen and internet access, it even had sonic and mortal kombat!

    I'm assuming it plugged into the wall and used AOL as a browser.

    it had a 14.4kbit modem, and used an ISP specifically for the system, it didnt have any graphical browsing, just through a terminal emulator, but still for its time that was fairly advanced for a handheld

    I really would not call that advanced. At all.
    For a handheld it's a stupid idea to include internet access which requires the person to sit at home and hooked up, which is why other companies did not add the functionality until wireless networking was widely accepted.

    That's the same as calling a Virtual Boy a handheld/portable. Wait...

    sure, it was no longer portable when it had the modem connected, but were you able to get online with your gameboy, gameboy color wasn't even released yet when the game.com came out, and had no internet access, gameboy advanced didn't have internet access, wasn't until the DS came along with internet capability, wasnt until the DS came out that there was anything like the game.com, game.com even had 2 cartridge slots, as the DS does, atleast the first model did, game.com pocket pro had only one cartridge slot

    it wasn't very powerful, used a fairly obscure CPU, sharp SM8521, clocked at ~5.5MHz

    Atari Lynx was awesome for two reasons:
    1. LCD Screen: 3.5" diagonal
    2. Battery holder (six AA) ~4–5 hours (Lynx I) ~5-6 hours (Lynx II)

    Me and the GP have had some much fun, you'd think we were at a party almost all of every weekend since I was twelve.

    The game boy. It was my first system and i've had for ages. I travel by train for about 6-8 hours a week, so I usually play it there. I must admit, that I never got into Pokemon craze. The last few weeks I've been playing Tetris, Wario Land and Donkey Kong Country 2,
