    I can't for the life of me find any stores that have the G6 lite in stock. Real Hot Stuff‏ carries it but it's out of stock. I emailed them asking when/if they get it in stock and this was the reply: "The manufacturer stopped producing them a while ago. They are waiting for the memory price to drop. We do not know when we will have them in stock." Are those first two statements true? Is the G6 lite in stock else where? I've heard great things about this and I'd like to have one. If it's not possible to get a hold of one of these (I do realize that it's an ageing Flash Card), does anyone have any suggestions for an equivalent replacement?

    I figured as much...I'm not thrilled about having to buy a separate card just for this. Thank you for the reply! I'm sure that the M3 lite is good enough despite that minor annoyance. [​IMG] I'm just really selective and picky with gadgets. [​IMG]

    I do love my G6 Lite, but I hate the 512mbnof space. I just got an M3 Lite for my GBA needs, and I love having more space. I'm using a 1gb microsd, and it's nice to have twice as many games on it.

    I know it sucks buying a microsd, but you may like it more in the long run. Plus...the M3 Lite's GBA GUI is a whole lot faster, and a whole lot better looking then the G6 Lite's GUI.

    I've seen pics of the G6's GBA gui but not the M3's; that's good to hear, the G6's seems pretty lame.

    But another new concern of mine is the possible difference in battery life. Since the M3 uses external memory it has shorter battery life, right? Also, the M3 has a GBA case too, right? I think I've seen it sold separately (I'd really like to be able to use it on my Micro [​IMG]). The only major disappointment I can see with the M3 is the lack of the usb/cartridge connector (I'd be cool to make gba back-ups [​IMG] ).

    Yes, the M3 Lite Perfect does come with the GBA shell. I got mine from Realhotstuff, and they don't list the GBA shell on the M3 product page. But it does come with it. I'm using mine in my Micro too. [​IMG]

    As for battery life between the two, I really have no idea. Hopefully someone can answer that for you.
