It's my birthday in a few weeks and I have the wife stumped as what to buy me.
I bought a cheapo android tablet about 2 months back and it works for most basic tasks with overclocking but it's just not powerful enough to run mame at a decent speed unless I run really ancient roms.
I thought about getting a Nexus 7 8gb tablet but I am disappointed with the lack of SD storage. I ideally want XBMC running on it but as it's in it's development stages it's not fully implemented hardware acceleration due to having to request data from the various chip manufacturers.
I realise that Android is the now and perhaps I should take the plunge and go for a Nexus but does anyone have any other thoughts on alternatives such as EeePC?
My main wants are a fast operating system capable of playing mame/N64 at a good speed, good battery life and HD display. Perhaps a fancy quad core laptop is what I am after but I doubt my Mrs will stretch to that!
Any suggestions would be welcome.
