Hope we're not hijacking this thread too much.

never mind, it's about games ...
HP-95LX -> HP Jornada 680 -> SL-C860 -> SL-C3100 -> Fuji u810 -> SL-C1000 -> HTC uni -> SL-C860 -> SL-C760.
March 12 2009 : Back because the Zaurus is one of a kind.
SL-C760 : pdaXrom
Pandora pre-ordered -> received and tested : great device but not my cup of tea -> sold.

Looking For A Gaming Console

If you're not going to hack the PSP, then don't buy a PSP. A hacked PSP is a wonderful device but if you're not willing to hack it, get them a DS.
I owned both machines, I sold the PSP mainly because of the remanence of the screen.
I'd like to buy the new version someday (I heard the screen is better) beacause with a psp you emulate almost all gaming machines from the 8-16 bits area + the PSone and GBA.

The DS has just so many great games made for the DS and not emulated (and more are coming) that I would recommend this console if you're not interested in emulators of the PSP.

I already thought about going for the DS given the age of my kids.

If my son would have been about 12, I'd have given him this :

My son is 5.  He has cousins 8, 10, 16 and 18 and they all like the DS and the Wii.  The nintendos are more family oriented, yet they still appeal to teenage boys as well.  I also have the ps3 and ps2 which are definetly for teenage boys (just like the xbox), but the appeal is narrower and can be more adult oriented.  The picture on a ps3 is very nice with the added feature of bluray (if that's what you like/want).  I've read a psp can control the ps3 remotely through the internet.
I'm now an iphone user and use my zaurii as serial terminals, perl and shell scripting and when I need 640x480 screens
