hm I've got mine for $188, I wouldn't mind paying an extra 9 bux to get the black one anyway hahahahahah..
as for the trade off ( white for black ) i don't think its worth it ( eg I wont do it if its me ) but then again its personal preference.. if you always look at your white DSL with regret and anger maybe you should trade it off before you eventually smash it lol
There's only one problem with the white DS Lite, it happens to me all the time. In fact even this morning.
person: "Hey, is that some kind of iPod?"
me: "God damn it no"
Why yes, yes it is.
Only this one also plays games, connects to the Internet, has VoIP, e-mail, IRC, ICQ, MSN, calculator, address book, and tons of other programs I can't even begin to tell you about, because you wouldn't understand. Oh, and it can play mp3's too.
Come to think of it, the iPod kinda sucks compared to this, now doesn't it.
