Which would prefer handheld or laptop

Hi all
Just a small question, let us say you are disabled (permanently) and you are on your back %99.9 of the time and you can't sit, and you have a handheld console that played Amiga games reasonably well and you also have a laptop that just swings into place over your bed that plays Amiga games also plays Amiga reasonably well, which would prefer handheld or laptop

With laptop you can also browse Internet and d-pad is not too good for most Amiga platform games (up = jump).

Has to be the laptop, it will do the Amiga emulation much better and you can do everything else as well.

solution to that problem... http://amigakit.leamancomputing.com/...oducts_id=1036

Laptop for the above reasons and you could also connect it to a large TV (most LCD/Plasmas support VGA), a good netbook would also do the job!

In the case of total immobility, I'd go for the laptop... If not, a good handheld would be considered.
