    I have a retropi, really like it. Haven't done much with it yet though. I kind of want to get one as a streaming device for my TV eventually. There's a lot you can do with one too. Pretty cool devices for sure.

    Yea you can do all sorts of stuff with a Raspberry Pi. A retro-cade comes pre-loaded with classic capcom and data east games. 

     

    Its an android based system with an SD slot. I still need to get my RetroPi setup

    I have some emulators, but haven't messed with it much. It's pretty nifty though. Works with a lot of controllers. And if anyone wants to, it can be used as a PC. 

     

    I wonder if there's any with better CPUs and RAM. Wouldn't mind one of these with some great specs.

    Finally got the Retro Pi set up its very easy. Under 20 mins and it works well with SNES, Genesis etc.

     

    N64 ran pretty good. Mame and Neo-Geo games are giving me issues mostly with the controls or maybe its the files. 

     

    Retrocade is fun but it has its limitations and ultimately I think the Pi is a better choice
