    I gues on earth.
    I would go for N2DSXL. Just because I don't use the 3D effect at all and I like the design of the N2DSXL

    While I don't use the 3D feature on the N3DSXL, I appreciate the better build quality and better panels (dual IPS here) over the N2DSXL.

    There is no reason why you would prefer a TN over an IPS for handheld gaming.

    Well, TN eats less power, and you don't really need it on secondary. Most of the time, you are looking straight at it, so you don't need that extra viewing angles. And because it is secondary screen, you don't need that super colors (because most of the time you are watching top screen). This is why I would prefer TN panel on bottom screen. But hey, that's just what I think :D

    N3dsxl. I don't see why there is even a debate about it. It's the top tier model. 3ds/3dsxl is outdated and the 2ds/n2ds is the is the poor man's knock off.

    You're not making a good case. "TN screens are horse shit, but you don't really need good color reproduction or broader viewing area". You don't really need a ds either, so.. what are you talking about?

    The n2ds is more power hungry than the n3ds. Just because it has a less power intensive screen doesn't mean there aren't other factors. I could post more sources to prove this, but your one of those people.

    I am not arguing with someone who knows everything. IPS on 3DS eats more then TN. That's fact.
