I know that normal DS are basically the same thing as a DS Lite because they are both capable of the same things. But the thing is the DS compared to Lite looks like a brick, whereas the Lite is sleek and sexy including the cool logo on the front. Plus it is much smaller and lighter, and the most best thing about the Lite is the screens you can have it really bright which makes the colours stand out more and improves the graphics slightly. The last thing I'd point out about it is that I much prefer the stylus it is longer and thicker which makes it better to hold and use for games that use the touchscreen. Anyway enough said, now you must be able to see why I want to get a DS Lite.
