When I came across this computter, the lid was seriously damaged. The HD didn't have Windows, and the floppy drive was busted. This computer has a built in (S)NES contoller via direction keys on the left of the trackpad, and X Y A B on the other. The keys are not mapped to the keyboard dir keys or the ABXY. I tested these in DOS. I need more info for this computer. I want to hook it up to play SNES games using an emulator. The keys are not a case hack, they look original. This would be an awesome portable SNES.

Got a pic or any other info? There are links on http://www.geektechnique.org with some info about Sega dev kits and stuff. Some of those might have links about SNES dev kits. Got pics or moer info on the machine? Sounds like a nifty dev machine or something.
I remember a laptop like this, a guy in college had one many years ago. As far as I can remember they were just a generic PC laptop, with no really interesting features apart from the D-pad and the other buttons. But like you say, they would be superb for emulation!
wasn't there a hardware card that ran snes games around then? maybe this machine has one built in, who knows?
Nintendo made internal cards for the IIgs that were used during the development of the SNES. The development of the SNES was over before the Pentium was released, so this laptop couldn't have been a hardware development machine.
I meant as a retail product, but I'm probably thinking of a different games machine anyway...NeoGeo?
