Apologies if this is old, but I don't ever remember seeing screenshots of the DS Lite side by side with the original DS.  
Ok, since the pictures were taken down here's a video instead...

Looks cool, but not that much smaller than the original...

The much brighter screen is a big plus, but even the slightly smaller size and weight will make a big difference in stylus + d-pad games like Metroid Prime Hunters and the recently announced Mechassault.

I dunno...I kind of like the look of the old one, though I must admit the navy one they are releasing in Japan is nice looking.

I think the smaller form factor will make a huge difference in FPS games like MP: Hunters. One of my biggest complaints about the thumbstrap is that the unit is too wide for me to keep my thumb centered on the touch screen. If I stretch my hand too far I have to look away from the top screen to figure out what I'm doing. I'm thinking the shorter width will make playing these games a lot easier.

Still, I'm not going to shell out $179 to replace my existing DS, but maybe after a price drop or two it'll be worth it.

Yikes! It's going to cost more than the original DS did at launch?! BOOO!

I like it a lot. The only drawback (well... besides price) is that GBA games stick out some. That's lame.

Looking at the pics, I really like the way the Lite looks closed. It almost makes the original DS look like it isn't put together properly.

I like the look of the new DS Lite.  Very stylish, very sexy, very cool.  If I get enough of a decent trade-in deal for my old DS, I might upgrade.

Well I'm getting a free Nintendo DS Lite on March 2nd because I just bought a 130,000 yen camera for my friend and I used my Bic Camera card which gave me 13% points.  Over $160 worth of free money!!  So I'll be turning all those points in in early March smile

Sleekest damned handheld frog I've ever seen. But, uh ... where do the cartridges go?
