Unless you have the hands of a nine year old Japanese girl, stick with the DS.
DS's DPAD sucks, its possible to overcome it for DS games since of their less usage on DPAD since having touch screen but when playing GBA games, it sucks.
I played with GBA SP for a month or two but I donno how micro is better, just played it 2 seconds.
If you're small enough to play an SP comfortably then get one. I'd get one myself but my hands and arms are too big, and playing an SP is painful because of it (mostly in the wrists).
I don't see the point of the Micro unless you need to carry it in your pants pocket. The SP's screen is small enough.
get a gba sp backlit version, i'm not sure if they sell those in japan though? it has a much brighter screen, it has old gameboy and gameboy colour support (which the micro does not have) and it ir's more comfortable to hold imo.
I have owned a Micro(sold it because I didn't need it) and I own a SP. I would say go for the Micro.
The Micro's DPAD feels alot better then the SP's DPAD.The L and R buttons feel alot better on a Micro as well. The quality of the screen on the Micro is excellent and the brightness is far better then the SP.
The SP's screen does have the advantage of being covered when it's closed but the Micro comes with a protective bag and the faceplate's are easy to change over. The SP does have backwards compatibility with GB and GBC games but you probably have a flash cart lined up for it.
From what I remember the battery life was around the same. If you can find a Micro go for it
@Jalaneme and spartan, thnx guiz, why didnt u vote in voting section?
It wont let me for some strange reason. It just kicks me back to the homepage
yeah i can't vote as it sends me back to the homepage.
I think SP's screen has big advantage over DS's, what u say.
i agree, i find the ds lite's screen when i play gba games on it looks grainy and kinda squashed, i'm not sure if the old ds has the same problem though.
I think the SP can wreck your wrists, unless you have baby hands.
i've played gba games for prelonged periods and my hands and arms are fine
yeah, i played 8 hours of Sword of Mana with it, very comfortable.
is it possible to charge it with my DS's charger?
its main down is its headphone and its size, which cannot put in pants.
You are female, therefore quite likely to have smaller hand than many of the male users on this forum ... also, you already said that you found it more comfortable, earlier on, giving rise to some proof that you are of the small handed persuasion
AFAIK, the SP uses the same charger as the original DS. A DS Lite charger won't work.

Get the Gameboy Micro, yo.
They're small, super-portable, got bright screens, faceplates, and just overall awesome.
I prefer the GBA SP (v2). Amazing screen, its just as portable as the gbm - it's really small.
I've had the occasion to try both, I really prefer the SP. If I had to buy one, I'd get a SP.
Brighter SP. I have one, it's great.
And it shares the same charger with my DS Phat.
