    My ladyfriend recently got an Ice White 3DS to replace her DSiXL. The first thing I noticed was that the opening and closing is much less 'clam-like' than my launch model Aqua Blue- it eases open and closed with a really satisfying motion (and silently, my one snaps shut like a mousetrap)

    Probably because of that she has gone 3 weeks without a single mark on the top screen- using her one and going back to mine shows me just how scratched mine really is- despite the months of carefully placing a cloth between it.

    So have they resolved the Top screen issue without a redesign?

    I heard that some of the colors released after launch (such as white, pink and red) were modified slightly in a way so that the lid would shut more gently

    Use displex to get rid of the scratches if they bother you. (will take a good 10min of rubbin')
    I use a cut out strip of screen protector on top of the display (not covering the 3Dimage with the protector if you get what I mean) so that the start/home/select part won't make direct contact with the top screen when closed and under pressure.
    I did it just in case, not because I had that problem.

    My launch Cosmo Black 3DS shuts/opens smoothly and quietly, when I compared it to my uncles aqua blue, I was like 'this thing clicks!'. o_o
