I guess I will review that console from bin and transfer some games to test it.
Nice... look into FreeMcBoot. Depending on which PS2 you have, either softmod or install chip for homebrew.

Ironically, despite having a slim PS2 with internal modchip, I prefer to use FreeMcBoot for homebrew. On the CRT the graphics still seem spectacular. On my LED TV it was less impressive so I'd be grateful if you could post a pic of how it looks via PS2HDMI adaptor

Good to mention they ship from China. I ordered one on Oct 25th and they shipped it immediatelly (and they also answered few my questions instantly) but the package hangs somewhere from Oct 27th. Probably toll office or whatever.

Yeah, 8000S and 8000P. Proper old-school amps. All my machines run through those into Monitor Audio GS20 speakers. There’s a lovely Sony minidisc deck on there too

Had no idea they are in China? Mrs ordered mine and it arrived in around 9 or 10 days.
tbh i thought they was UK based, doesnt appear to show on the website where they are.


Also recieved a virtually mint condition big box copy of Microproses Formula One Grand Prix
, with all leaflets and 2 Manuals (1 being the powerplus manual) , 4 floppy disks that i cant use because i have a CD32
Bought really as it was the game that made me buy an Amiga back in the day.

Black Friday has hit the Netherlands too... I was watching the deals and nabbed myself a really decently priced HP 2-in-1 laptop for hobby dev purposes among other things, everything except for gaming.

[ Show youtube player ]

Picking it up tomorrow, can't wait to try it out!

Deluxe retro mini Monster Joystick , excellent bit of of kit , but bit of a fiddly pain to build lol , but works a treat with the Amiga , 2 independant buttons and a switch that maps up on the joystick to the 2nd button.i think my zipstick will be able to have a well earned rest now

850 euros, down from 999 (and it was actually down rather than a Fake Friday deal, I had been watching prices for over a month already). Its a really good machine actually for a 2-1; good touchscreen, amazing keyboard. Absolutely not for gaming though.

We have couple of those at work, and my wife and daughter both have similar Lenovo model. Long battery life and mobility on those is great, but as you've said, they are not built for gaming, more for a work.

It's a laptop with touch screen and you can flip the screen in such a way that it becomes a tablet.
