Plus as you know, when you update a MAME version, you have to update all your collection to match.
I'm very happy with v106 as it plays all the 2D classics fine. Perhaps I'll upgrade in the future, if I find some game improvements for the Classics or game editions I'm interested in.
I'm a massive arcade head from way back and absolutely love MAME (hence why I bought a HotRodSE
back in 2002) but I'm with Bloodwych on this
The last complete set I have on my old ThinkPad T42 is v0.100 and that plays virtually all the classics that I want. I do have all the ROM updated to v0.130 though but haven't bother with the CHDs etc...
