Sand, water and electronics?! Sounds like an accident waiting to happen to me.  Plus if you nip in the sea you know someone's going to pinch it.

Thanks for the feedback guys.  I was wondering about the sunlight factor, because I can't even play my DS outside due to the glare.

I probably wouldn't take the thing on the actual beach, but it would be nice to play it on a hotel balcony overlooking the ocean.

This thing comes out this year and looks pretty bad ass.  A portable SNES with two controller ports and a TV out.

For some reason I actually have a Nomad Dave... and the AC plug adapter.  I have no idea where I got this thing or why, but If you'd like to borrow it for a bit and see how you like it you're more than welcome to.  That way you can try before you buy, so to speak.

[QUOTE]Are you sure it's a good idea (or even safe) to have handhelds out in warm/hot weather?
[/QUOTE]

I used to leave my original Game Boy in the hot car all day long, with the power on, just so I could continue my game after school.  I doubt that heat would kill a handheld.  Of course you could probably use the old Game Boy as a hockey puck without causing too much damage.
