I'm interested to see what can be done with the dual core processor machines with NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2. I'm buying an ASUS Transformer tablet soon for that very reason and maybe my next mobile phone when they come to market.
I'm sure there is enough power there to do most things I personally love to play in MAME. Of course Model 2 would be awesome, but at the moment playing Mr Do, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Joust, Popeye, New Zealand Story and many other true classic machines from the 80's, I'm loving it.
For me, they are the best time wasters that have simple game-play you can play on the train/bus stop on the way to work and back.
