A Bit of Advice..

Help guise T.T

Okay, so my sister had a white DS Lite several years ago. She never used it, I did, and when she did, the top half fell apart. Years later, my friend gives me her pink DS Lite practically new for 10 bucks. All's good, but I had been dying for the DSi XL. On my recent trip to Mexico, it turns out my spoiled cousin had a burgundy one but in really bad shape, so I took care of it and now the only problems is that it's missing a stylus, charger, and the touch screen's horribly scratched. I was planning on selling all three for a 3DS if I fixed them up right, but now I'm having second thoughts. The white one has lots of sentimental value, the pink one's just cute, and the DSi XL is HUGE. I wanted a blue one, but you can't always get what you want. Should I just fix up the pink Lite and Xl to trade for the 3DS at Gamestop?

P.S., there's a shop like two blocks from my house that fixed electronics at a moderately affordable price. They're charging me a hundred bucks to fix both the white DS Lite and the touch screen for the DSi XL.

I just wanna get the 3DS before Resident Evil: Revelations is released O_O

I definitely would get a 3ds over those options you have. But the thing is if the white ds has a large sentimental value to you, don't sell it and hold off.
I know you really want to get the 3ds before RE comes out, BUT are they not releasing a 3ds lite toward the beginning of the summer? I would keep the white ds (due to sentimental value of course) and save up some money over the winter to get the new one. Also remember that you wont be able to play your gba game cartridges anymore if you get rid of all of your dses (is that how you spell it plural?). So I definitely would hold off on your purchase.

Sell on ebay btw, you get ripped off to the EXTREME turning hardware in at trade in stores.

I hope things end up working for you though when it comes to your decision. If money is the issue, I suggest selling some stuff you don't value on eBay.
