I recieved a red Nintendo DS Lite this past Christmas. I was overjoyed when I got it, and instantly opened it. It was very easy to setup, and I noticed right away that it holds a charge remarkably well. I let it charge for about 45 minutes while I opened the rest of my presents, and when I took it off, the charge lasted for hours!
There are many, many accessories for this system. You can get different skins to customize the look of your DS Lite, along with accent kits. You can get different chargers, different cases and holders. It is so customizable, that you can even choose different color and syles of the stylus
There are also many different games available for the system. There are hundreds of games found amongst many different genres. There is a game for everyone! There are many sales on the games as well in most stores, so you can get a pretty good deal.
Last but not least, I have to mention the wireless feature. The DS Lite has wireless! You can even connect your DS Lite to your friend's over the Wi-Fi connection and play games, and even join in on the fun of PictoChat, a wireless program that allows you to communicate with your friends by drawing pictures.
