What's with the odd stylus position...?

Good news, lefties! :)

personally, i think the charger input and stylus location should be switched

I know. They should of left it on the side like the DS lite. But it isnt that much of a chore to get it out from where it is though.

I know. It's just such an annoyance when I quickly need to switch.

The odd stylus, start/select, and power button positions are all purposely made design flaws to rationalize the release of an updated model in the future.

This isn't my opinion, this is a fact proven by simple logic.

I don't find it odd at all. If a game needs the stylus, well I shall already have it out before even starting the game. Otherwise I use my finger for those games that only barley use it.

There's only 2 reasons I can think of why its in such a weird position:

1) With all the wires and components stuffed into the system, the current stylus slot position is the best Nintendo could come up with.

2) Make it awkward on purpose to make the next rendition of the 3DS more appealing.

Personally, I think #1 is more likely the case...

Your logic dictates that you would rebuy the system if they redesigned the above?
