    It's only 99.99. gba now retails at 49.99 humpo, but u can prolly get it a lot cheaper or around £25-30 second hand. The new SP's are 89.99 afaik.

    errr, I think that things either a real big fake.. or a real big illigal thing... emulating all those games can't be legal.. emulating is never legal unless you own the original game and use the roms as a backup, lol.

    and no handheld will ever beat nintendo:

    why make games for other handhelds if you can make games for the GBA? that's like writing programs for a totally unknown OS if you can make em for microsoft or something.
    it's all about the monopoly positions in the market...

    well.. how can emulating be legal then? I don't think nintendo will agree on them emulating all that stuff... unless they are official ports, which is a completely different story

    Emulating isnt illegal and never has been. Your perfectly within your right to own an emulator as long as you own the system too.

    An emulator is all built on code, which isnt illegal to own even if you dont have the system. The only thing that can make emulator illegal is by opening the console boot rom if you dont own the console, but emulating in its right isnt illegal and probably never will be.

    As for divx, its pretty possible. If it has a hardware chip built for high compression MPEG 4 and hardware post processing effects, then the CPU could easily handle the rest. If it doesnt have any hardware assistance then it is unlikely. :(
