The second iteration of the Nintendo DS, the DS Lite, is thinner, lighter and less expensive than it's parent console. The DS Lite offers longer battery life and a brighter screen that can be adjusted to multiple brightness levels. It allows for connection to the internet to play games with players across the world with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, and locally through an ad-hoc network the DS can create.
