I picked up a "Gamer V Portable" for $2.

It is loaded with a bunch of crappy 8/16 bit style games. When you turn it on it boots to a "220 in 1" screen with all the games. It had batteries in it so I was able to turn it on and check it out. The games all look pretty crappy but it has a nice screen and a nice compact shape. I bought it hoping there was some way to mod it and load it up with NES games and have a pretty nice portable NES. Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be a way to mod it at all. A shame really, a cool little system but filled with crap games and thus will never be used.

Just play one of the off brand tetris games on it, and then shove it in a pile. (it's cheap so it'll have at least 3 off brand block falling games.
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

Windows 8 Pro 32/64 bit full version for $3. Will be selling it immediately as I have no use for the awfulness that is Windows 8!
