    When you said "different versions of GBA, I thought you meant the standard, SP and Micro, the DS isn't a GBA but has the ability to play GBA games.

    The DS's aren't GBs or GBAs. They're DS'. As for the best GBA, SP wins, hands down.

    the screens look fantastic, bit of a shame i had to put a protector over it, but then again i don't want it to end up like the store demo machines either....

    the reason the store displays get so messed up is beacuse people key them

    as for the best GBA, the SP with the new screen (though, I did sell mine to get a DS, then sold it for a lite)

    I don't have a lite, so the regular is the best. As people have said though, the sp is hands down a better Advance system.

    I didnt really like the SP, for the price i would much rather just get another gamecube :p and it was too small, it hurt my hands after a while.

    best gba for long gaming sessions the origanal (easy on the hands) best all round gba is the sp but it hurts after a while if you have bigger hands
    but i picked ds lite as its the best handheld of them all :p

    Neither the DS or the DS Lite are GBAs so I won't vote for them. The SP was the best GBA as it was an all round improvement of the GBA, it had backlight, screen protection etc all the thing that made it an essential purchase. In my opinion the GBA Micro was pointless, it couldn't use the E-Reader, couldn't play GB and GBC games and couldn't connect to the GC.
