    I had to vote for the Good ol' trusty Phat on this one.

    For me the DSi is utterly pointless " But kids this has a camera ! look its cool " - if I want a camera i'll use my phone or just maybe, just maybe, I will use my kodak 9.2 mega pixel camera ( heavens forbid I actually use it )

    As for lites I've really got no problems with them although my girlfriend has managed to break 2 so far, but she can be a little careless.

    I must say that my DS has been somewhat neglected lately because I have been buggering about with my PSP

    Well nothing is wrong with the ds lite.

    But having the newest hardware is always cool [​IMG]

    I like the DS Lite because it can play GBA games and I like the feel of it but the DSi firmware looks so much better and support multimedia which is cool.

    The DSi is by far my favourite. The buttons and screens on the DSlite are inferior and I never cared about playing GBA games on DS, that's what my GBAs are for.

    Haven't used the DSi.
    But I still use my only DS.

    Which is the Electric Blue (Phat).

    Like the build quality of it over the Lite"

    DSi, only problem is the build quality (well, on my DSi the place where the power button's located makes a weird noise when I press it and the part with the right speaker makes the same noise when I press it). My good old Phat's build quality is a lot better.

    Lite for me, it's a perfect balance between functionality, design, size and quality..

    I'm having my first for couple of years, screens preserved very nicely, no problems whatsoever, not even with shoulder buttons!

    Nintendo DSi because it has a better menu and has updatable firmware so you could always upgrade and get cool stuff.

    Same here. I initially bought a DSphat, but when I saw the improved screens of the lite, I knew I had to have it. I see nothing special about the DSi to make me want it at all.

    Lite for me,

    but really though, if my pocket and my wallet is bigger, i would wish to get a phat, somehow everytime i switch on my ds, i have this scared feeling that i might accidentally break the screen [​IMG]

    Wanna trade DS'es?

    On another note, I hate my DSi, the R button just broke and I'm just about to leave on a holiday...
