Not trying to talk you out of it. Just giving you something else to consider. I suggested the iPod touch to a few friends who were considering Nintendos for their kids. They went with the iPods and are glad they did; considering its versatility and low cost appetite.
She has an iPod Touch. And a Nook Tablet with an N2A card. She wants the DSI XL as well. She doesn't even play games that much so it seems pointless, which is part of why I'm unsure she'll get it. When I asked her what she wanted for Christmas, that was all she mentioned, but I imagine I'll hear other things before then.
