What tablet would you recommend for emulator?
A phone is too small and a laptop is too much to carry.
Thanks.

None. Touchscreens are freaking awful for Amiga emulation.

Seriously. Freaking. Awful.

I was pretty excited by the prospect of having a fullspeed/full frame portable Amiga for a while. Got myself a quad core/1.8ghz baytrail based tablet.
Did the job pretty well. Everything from Elfmania to Alien Breed 3d2, and all inbetween ran nicely and at fullspeed.
Its just a shame the experience is still awful due to the touchscreen controls.
Huge disappointment once the novelty wore off. Not my tablet specifically, it handles the job reasonably well, it's just that amiga emulation on a touchscreen device is less fun that putting your hand in a blender.

I agree tablet and phones are no good for retro gaming. Not sure if Amiga emulator supports Bluetooth joypads that may make the experience better. Problem with that is you have to carrying a joypad around with the tablet.

Going to use x64 (baytrail) tablets for some amiga stuff... once I have time.
(I have a big box of old-never-used-10"-prototypes with non-working touch)

I am thinking that a slim laptop or a tablet with a keyboard is the way I will go.
