I don't care if you can't take off the JoyCons! You could play a friend online. I don't care if there is no kickstand, as long as I get to play zelda

I want to ge tthis bc my normal switch is literally falling apart now. I dotn mind all the things im missing like rumble and being 100 percent portable, i played my normal switch like that anyways, i loved it like that. I have the offical nintendo playstand sooo..lol. I mean i bet most people have one. I also have a few other stand type things from my other nintendo portables.
As for small text, the normal switch had a zoom in function, but that was in a later update, i wonder if thats already in there or if theyre giong to add it.

No Bluetooth headphone support? On a portable? That's a major dealbreaker for me! Bad nintendo seriously!

I own a PlayStation...hold your vomit plz, and while I enjoy my PS4 and am very happy with the game library I do miss playing games like Mario, Zelda etc. so for me the switch lite is highly attractive, the possibility of playing some of my favorite Nintendo games without having to compete for t.v screen time is extremely exciting.

I have a switch and only once have I ever docked it and that was for my niece and nephew to play together, I don't own a tv and consume media on my laptop. This switch is smaller and more my style. There are many people who own a switch and think its too big to be portable. This is who the switch is for, not just budget gamers and children or new first time owners of the platform.

The switch for me is for persons who loves to play RPGs like pokemon... and other big rpgs like skyrim, witcher and others are coming to switch...
It's my dream of playing skyrim or witcher otg and
Nintendo Switch OG is too pricey for me...

And im not even gonna play nintendo switch games on tv since i'm not a fan of most of their titles... i have a ps4 and pc to play better games...

So I'm gonna try the lite... since it can play Pokemon and other rpgs i want😂

why have rumble?... why connect to tv?. why share with friends?... Why play labo... i'm not a kid anymore...

Its handheld... So i'll choose lite all day for pokemon, skyrim, withcher 3 and upcomming Triple games ports

But if i want to play better games... i'd rather get a ps4 or a pc

The switch lite is cute and nice for people who love handheld, but what’s the point in buying a switch that doesn’t.... switch? 🤨 being able to detach the controllers and instantly have a player 2 was the whole purpose, innovation that no company has done before.

the lite from the get go screams solo/personal console..kind of like the 3ds..that's the market nintendo's trying to hit home because that market is giant.

The Nintendo Switch Lite is just an excuse for me to finally get a Switch :)

No rumble?..... TRASH!

I like the Switch Lite because it's lighter and smaller then the original switch. I already have a Switch but I have many siblings and this would allow me to play Animal Crossing for longer without someone asking for it. It's also not as expensive so it's a pretty economical choice for this sort of thing. 😊

The new processor is not weaker than the current Switch. It's simply more energy efficient. Also there is a Switch refresh (comes in a red box) that has the processor and can get you to about 9 hrs on the main Switch

Owned the regular switch for over 2 years. Never used the kickstand, used the tv about 5% of the time, this perfect for me and I traded my Drift Machine 1.0 for a preorder of the turquoise
