I like old DOS games, especially sierra games, and I like portable systems. I was wondering if anyone has thought of any semblance of a portable DOS machine. Something with either a full keyboard or a joypad with easily configurable buttons, optimized for dos games.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure if you can buy a "handheld game console" kit for it but making one yourself shouldn't be too difficult.

Also, there are a few handheld consoles that run full versions of Windows 10: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lslcH-T1E0o

The ARM in that would make it quite weak (the Pi3B can barely do 15,000 cycles, and then there's that VC4's slow video driver problem that makes even chocolate doom run too slow)
