    I will be entering an Atari Lynx II for my contest project. I've been wanting to build a Wii into one of these for a LONG time.

    Goals so far:
    Gamecube buttons and joysticks
    Keep the center piece for aesthetic purposes, GC-Lynx style
    5" LCD (probably component)
    Lots of battery life
    No last minute finishing!!!

    Nice, I expect you to outdo the Liinx in style. (Not that it'll be hard to beat my monstrosity)

    I am committed to actually having a complete worklog this time, so I'll be posting a ton of pictures. I want it to have as many original gamecube buttons as possible, so I trimmed down the shoulder buttons to fit while taking up less room. I also filled in the original holes and epoxied in the left joystick and ABXY
