They forgot about NEC's TurboGrafx 16 which actually, in real fact, introduced 512 colors and a 16-bit GPU.

NEC's Handheld the TurboExpress could also handle 512 colors and used the same cartridges (HuCards) as the TurboGrafx-16. The battery life was I guess about 3 hours. But I never had a problem with the battery, I was just happy to have a color system that played the exact same cartridges.

I also had a game gear, and my friends had Gameboys. Over-all, I never noticed much difference in battery life, but we'd just plug them in when needed. My favourite was always TurboExpress, then Game Gear, then Gameboy.
