Also can anyone tell me if the GPD Win is very heavy? like shield portable heavy? lol or is it more along the lines of 3DS XL weight
The Win weights only 300g according to DragonBox.

That's even lighter than the 3DS XL (335g).

I'd say battery life is pretty decent.
I don't have a Win yet but this should be accurate:

Heavy gaming: 3h
Light gaming: 5h
2D gaming: 6-7h
Offline video: 8h

The problem is the L3 R3 hack is very much a hack... and requires serious modification to your joysticks that will probably render them broken sooner rather than later... basically allowing them to slide up and down in thier PCB mounts... it just isn't a good solution. A work around I might consider is drilling a small hole in the case and putting tall pushbutton through the case on the back where your index finger could hit it. Leaving the joysticks unharmed. I also don't like damaging the L3 / R3 buttons there has to be a way around that.

Ok yeah thats true better to leave it be I guess. Can anyone tell me if theres any worthwhile differences betw the z8700 and z8750. I might be able to get the z8700 for a good deal but cant seem to get clear info

Is the 8750 alot more powerful/better screen

Same screen.

Around 5% better performance.
