I've seen people do this with commodore 64's aswell.. For prophet/mssiah64

You should try and go bigger than 7" otherwise your going to have a hard time doing anything else than playing simple graphical games...

here's some info on modding a psone lcd screen to rgb input - my mate did this so he could have a portable amiga600 :) http://www.papayalabs.co.uk/hacks/psonelcd.php

well i say 'portable' it was really semi-portable and just meant he didnt have to lug around a big old monitor *grin*
