The Switch Lite is ideal for those who plan to use the console exclusively for handheld gaming since it doesn’t feature a TV output. Engadget awarded the system a score of 90 in 2019. It’s lighter and more comfortable to hold than the standard and OLED models thanks to a design that’s more compact and does away with detachable Joy-Cons. A proper d-pad also makes the Switch Lite better for playing 2D games. The display isn’t as vivid as the one on the OLED model, but it’s about as bright as the LCD screen on the standard variant. Even with the Switch Lite’s shortcomings, it’s a great system and one of the most affordable ways you can access Nintendo’s compelling library of first-party games.
Woot is offering a discount on the Nintendo Switch Lite today only. The $200 handheld is now $160 thanks to a 20 percent discount. On the base Switch, that is one of the finest offers we’ve seen. The promotion is only valid while supplies last, so take note. Only the coral, turquoise, and yellow models are in stock as of the time this piece was written because the blue model has run out of supply.
