    personally, i find it a bit too small, its very uncomfortable to use after about 30 mins. also, ive heard of a couple that have got dead pixels in the screens(ours has a dead pixel in the upper screen). havent had time to take it back for replacement yet, so try and have a look before you buy:)

    Myself and my girlfriend got ours yesterday, so far pretty impressed to be honest. Great that you can play multiplayer games (on some releases such as Mario 64) from just one cart :) .
    Also I like the way the stylus works with Metroid Prime DS, finally a good alternative to the ol' keyboard and mouse, I never could play console FPS before this (not that I'm any better at the game than usuall ;) )
    Finnaly, the prospect of the recently confirmed (free) online play due latter this year is enough to make it a keeper of a purchase for me, 8 player online MarioKart DS anyone? :thumbsup:

    Will probably buy a PSP aswell when it gets its UK release, I like both handhelds for their different strengths.
