Re: Your Retrogaming laptop/portable machine megathread (recommendations, tips, minutae)

I use a Libretto 110CT. https://imgur.com/QcQHSnVh.jpg Another fun laptop I use is a Sony Picturebook (Crusoe processor).. although the resolution isn't ideal for gaming. https://imgur.com/Nu8dHtih.jpg I had a 70CT, and I loved it. Almost wished that I didn't give it to an ex-girlfriend (when I was …

Actually, the 8-bit guy's video says almost nothing about Dos laptops; it is interesting but very superficial and narrowly focused. The one that says how to pick the best gaming laptop for MS-DOS games? I agree with that. There are more laptops that can do DOS without troubles, except for sound …

Toshiba Protege 3440/3480CT (S3 Savage IX+Yamaha DS-XG - but remember that these are 440MX machines with max RAM ceiling of 256MB) Ooooh yeah, you are right - the spec sheets say YMF752 (which promises DOS support, but my guess is some WDM TSR in MSDOS box, not clean DOS mode), not 754, and the …

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 420CDS that has a dead power supply, a Gateway Solo 2500 that works but needs a HDD, and a Dell Latitude CPi with a broken screen and a half working keyboard Dell Latitude CPi - Pentium II 266 MHz, 64 MB RAM, NeoMagic 2160B, Crystal 4237B, 6.4GB HDD, Windows 98 Second …

Re: SIS 305

Eh, the SiS 305 isn't a great card, it's more of a...there card. Real life performance would be about that of an ATi Rage Pro or an nVidia Riva128. As for it being useful...eh, well, it's a good reason to send an S3 Virge to the landfill, right?

Re: Your Retrogaming laptop/portable machine megathread (recommendations, tips, minutae)

Many years ago I had a Toshiba Satellite Pro 490 XCDT laptop with a Pentium II 266 MHz CPU, S3 video card and ESS Solo-1 audio chip. Perfect for DOS games. It had two display modes for non-native resolutions: stretch/fill screen and smaller image. It also had a USB port which is very useful for …

If you got $700 to burn and want the FINEST in emulation and retro gaming in an actual handheld, I would recommend a GPD Win 2. It a Windows 10 handheld x86 PC that's slightly larger than a 3DSXL. Yeah, it's expensive, but it can play just about anything up to PS2/Dreamcast, and almost every PC …

Re: Your Retrogaming laptop/portable machine megathread (recommendations, tips, minutae)

The 8-bit guy didn't mention the Sony Vaio notebook computers that have Yamaha DS-XG audio hardware. The graphics are not good for 3D, but good for everything else. He didn't mention the Vaios because his video concentrated on the late era 2/early era 3 machines for pure DOS gaming (stuff that is …
