XL worth paltry return on 3DS trade-in?

So after hearing of how the XL is the better revision of the console (I thought it was like the DSi XL, aimed at people with poor vision or something), I'm really pining for those larger screens. Portability isn't a concern, if I don't have a backpack with me, I'm most likely not going to play with a portable anyway.

I only got my current vanilla 3DS in January last year at $200AUD, and have really only used it for DS games. I can only get $80 of credit for the trade-in, and I only want the Limited Edition white, which is $270 with MK7.

I don't feel like selling on eBay, since the old 3DS isn't going for much these days anyway (new ones seem to be selling at $150ish, used for even less naturally.)

So, worth it? Rip-off?

It just seems now though, that the extra effort will net me only about $20-30 extra... So I feel it's on the same level as the trade in.
