please someone explain to me the main differences between the nintendo ds and the newer version, the ds lite. i think the lite one looks fiddly, is it for older kids? is there better graphics on the lite? can the net be accessed on the lite? please help!!!! many thanks, clare x

Hi Clare. The Lite superseded the original - that's all you need to know

But if you must know the details the lite is smaller in all the right places and has a brighter screen...

The DS Lite is smaller, generally considered to be better looking and has brighter screens. The microphone on the DS lite is between the two screens whereas the mic is below the lower screen on the DS.

Both DS versions can access the internet although I believe they need a different version of Opera - bear in mind though that this software package gets atrocious reviews and the DS itself can be very fiddly to get online.

No, I don't think so - I don't find the controls worse on either model.
