I've been searching everywhere but there is not enough demand that my questions are easily answerable with a google search. I am currently looking for a netbook or notebook that is preferably 13.3" and UNDER $300 that can run DOSbox with most <2000 games.
Keep in mind that emulation requires performance, in addition of the game's requirements. You can get better performance for that cost from used computers. If it has Turion II processor (my laptop has it) and decent graphic adapter, it ought to be plenty enough. If used laptop has Windows XP, it could run most MS-DOS games (and many Windows ones) without emulation.
I checked my laptop and eBay. My laptop model is HP Pavilion dv7-4024so with following:
Turion II 2.3 GHz processor
17,3" monitor, 1600x900 (way bigger what you want)
500 GB HDD
4 GB of RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 with 1 GB of RAM
Memory card reader, camera, Win7, some software
It cost me almost 1000 € when new and it has run all the games I have thrown at it, unless compatibility with Win7 gets in the way (happened for CD version of Worms Armageddon). Ultra Street Fighter IV may be heaviest game I have played on it, and it runs good. Same exact model doesn't seem to be available on eBay at the moment, but you can use that hardware as reference for buying used laptop.
This looks good

You know what they say, don't you? About how us MechWarriors are the modern knights, how warfare has become civilized now that we have to abide by conventions and rules of war. Don't believe it. MekWars
