    This is really your choice only.
    Personally I'd go for the white one since I associate white with 'lite' more than black with 'lite'.

    On the other hand, aren't the black ones rarer? That could be a reason to pick black.

    I went with black cuz its sexier. If that's possible for a handheld. Truth is, a ds lite isn't going to get you dates, so make your choice for yourself.

    Important note, the white one is prone to yellow markings over time, especially on and around the shoulder buttons.

    Plus, anything that doesn't look like an ipod is okay with me.

    I don't think so; there's tonnes of them here in the UK. Admittedly white is the most common colour globally because it was the only launch colour that was the same for all the territories, but there's no "rare" shortage of black or anything. It just that they got released later in America (and Japan?) so it seems that way.

    The only trouble with the black ones as mentioned are the fingerprints. I got one at first and took it back because of a dead pixel and they had none in stock so I got a white one. The black looks nicer but constantly cleaning fingerprints off it will soon get on your nerves.

    Really, it is just people's tastes and it's up to you. I cannot tell you what I want you to get. For me, personally, that I want black nor white since the black is my favorite color, lol. I do not know which one I want. [​IMG]

    I think that the white DS Lite looks much better than the black. Don't ask me why, I'm still trying to figure that out myself [​IMG]

    when you find one with good spring in the action buttons, a volume slider that doesn't wiggle around, no cracks in the hinges, and no dead pixels, then its a keeper. who cares what color it is.

    I would normally say black, as black is easily my favorite "color". But for some reason after seeing both in person, I vastly prefer the look of the white Lite. It somehow looks more "classy" and the black is just so much of a fingerprint magnet, it's insane.

    I think white looks awesome, it looks all cool too me, well thats when you first get it, after a few months its dirty as heck. I have one, I want to clean it, but I don't want to dry out the plastic, its cracking already. lol.

    If I had to choose a new one I'd choose black since the white ones were released way before the black ones and the white ones have that whole cracked hinge thing going on.

    For those of you that are complaining about dirty buttons on the white Lite, just use a face cloth with a bit of window cleaner. Makes it just like new. Especially the shoulder buttons.
