Speaking of durability, when I was young, my little brother and I found a SNES cart laying in ditch in some water. It had no label and looked like it had been there awhile but hey we were kids. FREE GAME! Took it home, dried it off and popped it in. Ogre Battle... worked perfectly. Now that was an awesome game.

I've dropped my GBA on hard concrete multiple times, and it still runs absolutely perfectly. It is really, REALLY worn down though. I played it so much that I wore off the coloring on the back. The only problem I had was the battery cover. It was pretty flimsy. This is the GBA I have. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3556/3331375843_18644a1cda.jpg
It's not the exact one, but I have that model.
