  • size. that's it.

    also, you will be very hard pressed to find the accessories for the DS, like extra styluses. they are just about all for the DS Lite now.

  • The DS is the original big chunky first version of the handheld gaming device. I have the big fat blue one...bleh I hate it. I think they only really sell the DS Lite now, it's just a thinner, lighter, nicer, cleaner version of the original chunky DS =] It's the exact same system, just with two different styles.

  • The size is the main different. The charger is also different. The stylis is in a different place, as are the power and sound buttons. It also has better clarity when playing. I have a pink one!!!

  • To add to what the other ladies said the Lite has a much brighter screen (we did a side by side comparison and were surprised that the Lite's screen really was much brighter not just a tiny difference). But the speakers are not nearly as good IMHO.

    If your thinking of getting the original you might be better of getting a used or refurbished one because lots of people traded up to the Lite
