Having previously owned the ds lite and sold it long ago, i recently decided to finally replace it so chose to buy the dsi xl because of the much bigger screens.
Having bought this bundle i have to say im not dissapointed. The screens are noticebly much larger in comparison to the previous model of dsi which only expanded on the screen of the lite by .25 of an inch. Having much bugger screens makes palying games alot easier and more fun as it's less strain on the eye. The sound has also improved, along with the battery life giving plenty of game time before having to plug in the charger.
The weight of the system isn't as heavy as you would expect. Although the xl is alot larger than the previous model, this isn't reflected in the weight of the system making it still quite light to hold.
This particular one has mario icons on the top screen to and is finished off in a dark shade of red which looks very sleek. Only complaint would be that it has gone back to the ds lite style fingerprint magnet finish on the top of the console which will makes keeping it looking clean difficult unless you are prepared to wipe it over everytime you've finished using it. Though this is only a minor 'flaw' on what is overall a great looking system.
