    I have a launch day N3DSXL with dual TN screens and CFW. I'm looking to buy another N3DSXL hopefully with dual IPS screens and before any firmware updates. Has anyone recently purchased a N3DSXL with dual IPS and have the serial number? I would like to know.

    newer ones are all Full TN, because Nintendo always intended to use TN. TN has a lower energy consumption and saves up to 30%! That and the better response times made it perfect for a handheld. But TN became rare and so Nintendo was forced to use IPS as a backup for a certain time. That production span is over and all models are back to double TN now.
