I actually started on this a couple of years ago. MiST with 12" LCD screen, touch overlay, battery and controller. It never got finished though, as I realised that it became much too big to be comfortable to use. Also, controls was a problem. There are so many different controller schemes, it was difficult to find a userfriendly solution to cater for "all" games. E.g. Head over Heels for the MSX use a lot of keys, but totally different keys than e.g. Gradius for the same platform.
A laptop is probably a better solution.
Edit: Early iteration of the prototype
Here you can see the MIST board, LCD controller, amplifer and speakers and a PicoPSU. I later replaced the PicoPSU with a small switching PSU and a 7.2V 5Ah RC battery.
