    there's an "unwatch thread" link at the top. Mods are probably going to nuke this conversation soon anyway.

    Wtf, when he said he prefer n2dsxl he answered op question.
    And when some other dude said he prefer 3ds with dual ips, @Kubas_inko said the better combo for 3ds is top ips and bottom tn rather than both ips.
    He doesn't said he like the n2dsxl because of the screen combination but the form factor & design.

    If you want 3D, get a N3DS, if you don't care, get a N2DS

    Depends on your budget and whether you like having 3D or 2D only. Just make sure you get either New 3DS XL or New 2DS XL. Both are faster and better than the regular ones. Just ignore those TN vs. IPS debate because it's a lottery unless you can specifically try and open each console.

    Hmm, idk. Earth maybe?
    Get a n3dsxl. n2ds/n2dsxl is cheaper, but n3ds is more efficient.

    Go for a n3dsxl even if you don't care about 3d. You can find brand new ones on craigslist for the same price as the n2dsxl.

    the nest bang for the buck is the n2ds xl, so long as you dont care for 3D.

    Of course the N3DS XL is the "best" from most perspective. But hey its $50 more so you have have to ask yourself if 3D is worth $50.

    It's like when I bought my car... I kind of wanted leather seats, but the cheapest op[tion to get them in my car was about $10,000 (came with other stuff too). I decided the leather seats werent worth 10K so I like the cloth seats much better than I used to no. :-)

    That's interesting. Is it more expensive than the regular n3dsxl since it's a limited edition? Anyhow, it all boils down to the budget and preference of the TS. In the end, it's his/her choice. We can only advice him/her on what to look for.

    agreed . . . i just like to correct things that i find incorrect and/or inconsistent (its better for the reader that way)

    Well maybe you're both illiterate, because "that dude" said he prefered the design of the 3DS over the build of the 2ds. The duel ips thing was secondary. So I don't think I'm alone in thinking he was arguing that tn combo was in reference to his infatuation with the 2ds.

    I'm sure the higher power requirements is negligible on such small screens with such low power requirements. I bet our systems last the same amount of time per charge, give or take 30 minutes. Sure, the colors won't be washed looking directly at it. You're not doing 3D with it either so no looking at it from the sides. If anything, I'd prefer the TN's faster response time on the top for FMVs. But then again, I'll just take my dual IPS and be happy. :P Thanks for sharing though. I honestly did not think of those points. ^_^

    Kay suit yourself, it's not worth it. I guess i'm glad i'm just illiterate and nothing more.

    Note to self: When i said "He doesn't said he like the n2dsxl because of the screen combination but the form factor & design." i said he as in Kubas_inko not "that dude". Is WeedZ already implying it in his reply? because if he(as in WeedZ) is, Kubas_inko clearly said:
    Or he(as in WeedZ) is too literate to understand my illiterate word? I think reading the thread from begining SLOWLY, CAREFULLY, and LOUDLY will give someone(not implying any specific person, i swear) a better understanding.

    That other dude is OrGoN3. What is with people trying to split every vernacular hair? Maybe we wouldn't have so many misunderstandings if people would just concisely post what they mean.

    Okay i'll clear up the misunderstanding:

    first from my reply
    the he i mean here is Kubas_inko, and OP is jellybeangreen2

    the "some other dude" here is OrGoN3

    the he here is Kubas_inko

    Now from Kubas_inko reply as i understand it
    this is Kubas_inko replying to jellybeangreen2

    This Kubas_inko replying to OrGoN3, but when he said it he mean it like this "But best is top IPS and bottom TN :) 3DS.

    Now i'll appreciate it if Kubas_inko can confirm this

    Dude, I know. I said I know who you were talking about.

    That was the mixup, his post sounded as if he were defending the 2ds instead of talking about the 3DS specifically. If he had responded to me with "I was talking about the 3ds", the conversation would have been over. But instead he was debating nonsense and trying to change the definition of words. So it went on for like 2 pages.
