Default DSi vs DS Lite

I've been wanting to buy one so I could play Pokemon Black. For all you casual gamers and for all you hardcore gamers, steer me into one direction or the other. I'm leaning more towards the DS Lite, though.

btw i won't be buying a 3ds, so don't recommend it

edit:

based on the comments, things that i like about each

dsi:
- online capability
- better hinges

dslite:
- gba games
- price

Personally, I like the DS Lite better because it can play GBA games; you get more for your money. I dislike the DSi, the camera has rubbish quality.

The DSi has better online capability, supporting WPA as well as WEP, whereas the Lite only supports the WEP. Just saying.

I'm not voting due to the fact that I've only owned a Phat, Lite and a 3Ds, but that fact above would be enough for me to get a DSi, unless money was an issue. But then again if you're not big on online play and do enjoy GBA games, then the Lite is probably for you.

Although from what I've seen, DSi tend to have better longetivity, due to the Lite's awful hinge. (I've seen my brother's and a friend's Lites get ruptured because of their hinges). Eh.

I think that the DSi has too many unnescesary features that many other things can do better, like the camera, and it's quite expensive. It also can't play GBA games. The only good thing I'd say it has going for it would be the ability to communicate with more recent Internet connections, being able to communicate with WPA connections as opposed to just WEP, like the Lite.

I'd actually recommend an original DS (DS Phat). The screen's a bit smaller and isn't as bright as a DSLite's, the battery life is slightly worse, and it's a larger system, but it's cheaper, has a better GBA slot, and has a better stylus slot.

I voted for the DSi to shake up the poll a bit. No real reason, it just felt right.

But yeah, go with Karma's suggestion. My big, blue brick never lets me down.

Dslite has more bang for the buck. GBA games, pretty good quality. I had a dsi and sold it, cause it's basically a waste of money. The online sucks and the camera is just...terrible. Not really any good dsiware games either.

I love my DSi XL. I only play DS games so it is prefect for me.
