I want to buy a used 3DS (original) from my friend for $80 but also I prefer the 3DS XL.

I would just go with the XL for $30 more dollars, but a $120 difference is too big to ignore.

Do you get the games on his 3DS as well? If so, that would make that deal all the more attractive (assuming his 3DS is still in good condition).

Unless you really want bigger screens and/or hate fingerprint magnets (e.g. the OG 3DS), I would go with the OG 3DS.

That's a fantastic deal for a 3DS however I would still recommend a 3DS XL. Maybe you can find a used 3DS XL in good condition?

Go with the XL, the screen size makes a big difference, plus it has a much better battery life to it.

As an OG 3DS owner I'd recommend the XL. Older non-XL 3DSes have iffy D-pads and buttons.
