NiMH batteries will output almost the full voltage until they are totally drained. Alkalines on the other hand will loose the ability to do so much faster and due to internal resistance. They will cut out even though all of the energy is not used up.
To see this put an alkaline used in a GP2X after it stops working into a low drain device like an old GBA and you will find it will last a very long time. Take an NiMH from a GP2X after it stops and put it in the same GBA and it will not last long as almost all of the energy was used up.

RAM: 64 MB NAND Internal
Please fix that to:
RAM: 64 MB SDRAM
Storage: 64 MB NAND Internal, SD Card
I cannot recommend the rechargeable batteries enough, as the GP2X eats them just as fast as the Game Gear did.
Talk about technically inaccurate, the Game Gear used 6 AA batteries, and had an upconverter providing high voltage to an actual flourescent backlight. (the GP2X uses 6 LED lights)
At minimum the Game Gear burns through batteries 3 times as fast as a GP2X

DaveC posted on Apr 22 2006 at 06:36 PM said:Also in your review those screenshots you have are scaled down and make the GP2X look pretty awful. While you and I know that it is not the way it really looks, many newbs will not and may think the GP2X cannot display games at full res. You should be able to click on those pics for a full detail 1:1 image.

I will change the RAM and Storage. Thanks. Again. This is NOT on the FAQ page as you have stated here.
I have done my research. I even spoke to a couple board members, even before I had the unit in my hands to test the thing out myself.
I am trying to walk the very thin like of writing for a wide audience that cannot understand technobabble and writing accurately. Frankly I would rather it make sense to layman and have people on this board correct me.
