    Ok guys, I actually bought 2 of them.

    1. Both are 10.7.0-32U

    2. One of them has dual IPS Displays. The other has dual TN Displays

    3. The first 6# on the serial numbers are:
      • The one with dual IPS Displays (YW7011)
      • The one with dual TN Displays (YW7017)
    I will take pictures and put them up later today.

    Edit: Here are the pictures I promised: http://imgur.com/a/iKdgC

    I believe I have a dual IPS (YW7011). I can't really tell about the washing out on the bottom screen, but that's about it.

    Incidentally, if you want to sell one of the extra sets of faceplates - I'm in the market for them. I have an european n3DS and I want to use the 8 bit faceplates.

    Can confirm. I just picked up a YW7011 edition as well and it has dual IPS displays.

    Just curious, is the bottom screen supposed to look slightly fuzzy or not as sharp as the top screen?

    Somehow I believe screens are random and there is no way to predict them based on serial codes.

    Yep, the extra layer of the touch screen causes slight dimness and fuzziness compared to the top screen.

    +1 on the 7011 model.
    I have 2 of them and both were dual IPS.

    If youre in Canada, Calgary - EBGAMES has the 7011 models.

    I feel bad for it. Why dont you just exchange it for another unit with YW7011 maybe?

    Would they really just let me exchange it? I got it at Target. It sucks that I have to do something sketchy like this just because Nintendo is lame.
