    I haven't decided yet. I'm still stuck with a phat, and I don't play gba games so I think this is worth carrying around (and I think you can put music into the SD slot??? or somehow a mod can let you use this slot for further pirating???)
    well I need to know more about this before I'm gonna buy it, and need to see if flashcarts will work...
    but i'm definitely gonna get rid of my phat.
    (wow, i'm lucky i didn't get a lite few months ago)

    I'll tell you..

    If it has GBA support directly.. Probably yeah.
    If its hackable , Yeah.
    If I will be able to sell my older DS Yeah.

    of course.

    I'll still be keeping my DSlites though.
    I think the SD slot is enough to sell any true pirate on it.

    I'd say no... my CycloDS is perfect. It does everything the new DSi does except for the larger screen and camera. Pfft who NEEDS those? After all, this IS a gaming console...

    The only situations where I would buy one is

    1. If my ds lite breaks
    2. If I can somehow get the dsi at a very cheap price (e.g. selling my current ds/getting it from a dodgy market [​IMG])
    3. If I somehow stumble upon a million £

    I'm only hoping that the SD slot can somehow be used for gaming purposes XP
    and because of the "game download" and the inbuilt web browser, the DSi seems to have a better CPU...
    (just a quick guess though)(probably a larger RAM?)

    I'll probably get one down the line somewhere. The potential for DSiWare is pretty big. I like the new 'channels' interface too. Imagine hacking the DSi and loading homebrew from the SD slot and letting it show up as app 'channels' on the firmware. Your own SNES emulator app etc.

    Not too shabby at all. I just wish it didn't look so much like the DS Lite and that the camera was actually useful for something besides taking your mugshot.

    Not gonna buy it. No slot-2 support for rumble, guitar hero, taito paddle and the soon-to-be-released motion pack, makes it a big show stopper for me.

    I think I want to buy it, but It costs me so much money, so I have to find out the good advantages before buy this cool gadget.

    I think it is cool, but I have to think about my economy, this NDSi has just little advantages to it, besides, I want to know if we could use AR or not, lets check it out~ [​IMG]

    Yes that's why, I never got another DS lite after my brother stole mine.
