    so i have been wanting to purchase a ps vita for a while now and have notice that there are two different models. i don't know what will be the best one to buy. what i want to do with the vita is to hack it to play some emulators. the reason im asking y'all is because i don't know if one is better then the other for emulation. thanks for your help

    The Fat unit is better but you need to make sure when you are buying it that it comes with a memory card. The slim one honestly feels too cheap the only good thing about the slim model is that it has internal memory which you dont need to buy a memory card.

    On a side note you will need SD2VITA also if you want to upgrade your memory

    I'd say go with the original model if you can. The screen quality is much, much better.

    I use Linux and the fat model doesn't register with qcma <-- (standard file transfer software for hacked units)

    The first and fat model,I got both of them and there is absolutely no! Advantage in the new Model accept the 1gig built-I’m Memory,but the screen in the old model more then makes up for it.
