Hi. I've had my fat DS since, 2004 or 2005 I guess. It's been handy to me, but obviously it's time to retire the one I have, as the top screen doesn't work, and the touch screen is messed up. I was thinking of getting a DS lite in favor of it's smaller size, as the original DS can be quiet bulky. I never owned or played aLite before though. Is it basically the same with just better brightness settings? How do the speakers and volume sound compared to the original? I liked the DS' clicking buttons, but I could probably find the Lite's controls fine. Is there any particular differences you spotted besides case size? How is the brightness setting anyways?
