    If its just for emulation, I suggest a 200X/300X for that extra RAM.

    The extra RAM is almost never used in emulation.

    PSP is good for a ton of things, it's own games rarely make that list.
    But if it's emulation you want, go for the PSP.

    Your best bet is getting a decent laptop. Meh ones can run N64/PSX emulation fine, high end ones can do more.

    But anyway, the PSP is the best standard handheld console for this type of thing. Outside of the PSX compatibility, you get emulation for tons of other things, and most of them work great.

    I have both a GPH Wiz and a Dingoo A320 for retro-gaming on the go and both are fantastic devices. SNES generally runs great except for custom chip games that used SuperFX or stuff like. I love the Dingoo for its form factor and the awesome battery life, the Wiz is a little more powerful and has an amazing AMOLED touch screen that looks great and is a joy to use with SCUMMVM for example.

    I don't have a PSP, so I can't comment on that. But i can assure you that both the Wiz and the Dingoo would be good choices for your needs.

    I wouldn't call it 'really slow'. I've played through the first dungeon of Zelda OOT, and a few more FPS and it would be enjoyable. The first couple levels of Starfox run great, it was only when I hit the underwater level that I had to quit. Stuff like Mario Kart and Smash Bros are so close to working that if they had somebody to focus more on optimizations they would probably reach the mark within a couple updates (just don't expect audio. Personally I play 99% of games on mute anyway)
