Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP

Nintendo’s new Game Boy Advance SP is targeted at adult gamers and incorporates a flip-top design, rechargeable battery and lighting features intended to extend its portability. The unit is scheduled for release in Australia on 28 March.

The new Game Boy’s changes are almost entirely aesthetic. Beneath the hood, it’s the same Game Boy Advance system and it will run all previously released games. With the unit’s sleek new look — it will debut in metallic cobalt and platinum — Nintendo hopes to lure business travellers, university students and other players willing to pay a bit more (almost $200) for appearance.

The screen is a 2.9in LCD with front lighting, but the unit itself will be one of the smallest gaming handhelds available, with dimensions of 25x85x80mm. It weighs around 142g.

One major change in the system is its rechargeable lithium ion battery, which Nintendo officials estimate will handle 18 hours of continuous play with the unit’s light off, or 10 with it on. Recharging takes three hours.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
