On my "ever increasing" list of things to investigate is modifying and Atari
Lynx hand held. It already has a 16MHz 65C02 processor and LCD, with mapping
up to 512+kb of ROM. Also the should be fast enough to run a semi-compatible
emulator-on-a-cart as the CPU is near-enough and only the other I/O has to
be simulated with the Mickey and Suzie chips.
