Nintendo DS Lite vs. 3DS?

So I got my Nintendo DS Lite about four years ago, and it's still doing
pretty good. I wanted to update, though, so I got the DSi two years ago.
It pretty much fell apart within a few months, and I'm back to my DS
Lite. I'm considering updating again, and I'm caught between replacing
my DS Lite or buying a new 3DS. So what should I get? The way I see it:
the DS Lite is more sturdy than newer systems, has the same games (with a
few exceptions), and has everything I need. The 3DS has newer features
and games, an internet browser, and the Store. The browser on the DSi
was okay, but it was kind of slow. Is it the same for the 3DS? Is the store actually worth using? I used to
get a few games here and there on the DSi, but most of them were
pointless minigames that I kind of thought were a waste. Finally, how is
the battery life with the 3DS? I used to get full days with the DS
Lite, but only an hour or two with the DSi on DSi Sound. (Oh, is there
still an MP3 player on the 3DS?) If anyone has any professional/user
reviews they could point me to, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks for any help/opinions!
