Playing the MintyPi

What's it like to play a MintyPi for a few hours? Comfortable? Planning on building one soon. And was just wondering.
Thanks

I think the longest session I've had gaming on the mintyPi was 2 hours. It's actually more comfortable than you would think. Grab an Altoids tin and hold it like you would be playing a game on it and I think you'd be surprised.

I've done 4-5 hours at a time and it's fine but I was playing some RPG's but it was comfortable.

I use mine all the time for Tetris, and its really appealing for 15-20 min. sessions. I've found that after that my eyes get kinda tired from the screen. It's definitely do-able for longer sessions, just not as comfortable as, say, a gbz.
