seen these ODROID systems on ebay, i have used raspberry pi in the past with varying levels of success (poor n64 & dreamcast for example), the ODROID things apparently are much better? has anyone any experience of using one of these and if so would you recommend one?

I hear the newest ODROID can run Wii games on Dolphin at default settings, but I haven't researched enough into them to give you a guaranteed answer on if it's worth it or not, I'd recommend looking at some reviews on YouTube and watching a newer ODROID in action.

i'm mainly interested in it for the dreamcast, n64, ps1, saturn stuff,my fav stuff thats not great on raspberry pi,  its small and i could take it to work on my night shifts.

Well if it truly does run Wii emulator just fine at native settings, I imagine it will run those too at native resolution maybe even bumped up once or twice.

Yeah wait for the Odoid-H2 to be released next month (December) and pick that up. It was running 4-player Mario Kart on the Wii so I think it'll give you really decent N64 and Dreamcast performance Smile
