Basically, it's too much of a hassle to set up the gamecube+gameboy player to put some new games on my old F2A 256 ultra GBA flash cart, plus I hate how it sticks out of my DSlite.

I've been thinking about getting a Gameboy Micro to solve the flushness issue, but then I still have to use the gamecube+gameboy player to put games onto my F2A, so I might as well buy a more current GBA flash cart.
But in that situation, perhaps I should just buy a DSlite sized GBA flash cart.
However, I kinda want to buy a GBM simply because of how ultra portable it is, and I kinda hate the borders GBA games get on DS screens.

So, I can't really make my mind up, and any recommendations would be greatly appreciated

I've just recently bought an EFA Simple for my good-ole GBA, even though I have a 3-in-1 in my DS lite. For dedicated GBA gaming, I prefer the GBA-EFA setup. But when I'm on the road, I don't usually carry my GBA around with me, so I use the 3-in-1 with the DSL instead, whenever I crave GBA games.

What I'm trying to say: Do both! If you obviously have the money for a GBM plus flashcart, the extra 20 bucks for a 3-in-1 probably don't hurt you much.

Because a Micro and the F2A would be perfect

I guess the F2A needs a Gameboy Advance with the original link port to be written to, and he doesn't have an original GBA, just a Gameboy Player.

My sister uses a Micro and the old F2A I gave her. Seems to work out pretty well for her. Then again, she doesn't play DS.

If you take the DS with you alot get the flashcart, otherwise go with the Micro.

You could get an Elink or EFA Linker for the GBM (both just over $21 USD shipped at Dealextreme). They both have connecter ports in the cart, so the GBA link port isn't needed.

If you want a GBA cart for the DS, I'd go with the 3-in-1 or the eWin expansion pack.

These are exactly the points why I bought a GBM for my old G6 and it's great!

okay, I decided to buy a GBM, infact I went to get one today, except..
Gameboy Micros don't exist in New Zealand, I think I might've seen one or two when they came out.. but now, absolutely nothing.
So I'll have to order one online, and last time I ordered something online was with liksang (

So, what site is the best to order a GBM these days?
