Have you realized how strong the DSi shell is compared to the DS lite? I always have my DS in my pocket (at work or at school) and I went through 6 DS lites (2 whites and 4 black) and they all ended up having a crack on the hinge (and some touch screen problems on the black). Even the one I traded in at GameStop for the DSi had a crack (only seen on the hinge when open under good light). Now I have my DSi since sometime around May and I had it in my pocket, my backpack, unprotected, dirty,etc.... but so far.... (October) Nothing has happened to it yet.... no crack or braking (except the L and R button squeaking). Heck my manager dropped my DSi by accident and nothing happened to it (I had to return it later for R button Issues). Nintendo did a really good job on the plastic housing of the Nintendo DSi.... Any of you had problems with your DSi during day to day regular uses?
