    Are there any benefits of the Nintendo DS Lite over the normal DS?

    DS Lite: brighter screen, smaller unit itself. Same size screens

    Big DS: can't think of anything

    Dude, If you trying to decide on what DS to get, I would go with the Lite. I traded my Big DS, in for the Lite, and the Lite has a big difference. When you play the games, the brightness of the screen actually makes the game look better. I would totally recommend getting the DS Lite.

    The screens on the DS Lite are much. much better than the original, even at their lowest setting, i remember comparing my DS Lite with my brothers original S and it was just amasing how much difference there was. (He ended up getting a DS Lite)

    Only downside to the lite is the GBA games sticking out, which is more of an issue to my brother than me, as he plays on GBA games more than I do.

    Well, the original DS has larger speakers, so it's a bit louder than the DS Lite.

    I prefer the original DS myself since using the triggers on the DS Lite hurts my hands faster than if I use the original.

    On both the original DS and DS lite the speaker[bold]s[/bold] are on either side of the screen, due to the smaller size of the speakers on the DS Lite the sound is slightly quieter and maybe a bit more high pitched.

    ^ i call bullsh*t. you can't make sound louder without upgrading the speakers.. the DS lite does not use the same speakers as the original DS
