How do classic Gameboy games look on GBA?

I've been tossing around the idea of picking up a GBA. I have an original Gameboy with several games like Zelda and Metroid II. Does anyone know how these look on the GBA? Are they worth holding onto? If not, I might be able to get enough from them on half or ebay to pay for a GBA.

They look about the same. You can choose a color scheme when you boot it up, but it won't put the game in full color, just the tint of the screen.
The games look better IMO because the GBA screen is a bit larger and you can also shoose to stretch the GB game to fit the Wide GBA screen. Overall, playing GB games on the GBA is more enjoyable.
