If you're already Nintendo-savvy, the Switch Lite lets you move all your preexisting Nintendo games onto it, so you still have access to your library. It's also lightweight and a loooooong battery life so you can happily enjoy your games without disrupting anyone else you're sharing the space with by using the TV.
Promising review: "The buttons are soft, and far superior to that of the original detachable joycons. The screen quality has definitely improved over the original switch, which tended to have a warmer or cooler than normal shift in hue. The battery life is excellent, and the switch lite tends to run cooler than the original. Due to the better thermal management, I definitely feel like it is easier to play for longer without my hands beginning to sweat. I thoroughly appreciate the improved reachability of the center screen! It’s easier to play a touch-enabled game, as reaching between the joy on controls and touchscreen is close to seamless. The left hand buttons have been traded for a d-pad, and it rocks back and forth wonderfully. It reminds me of the buttery smooth d-pad of the Super Nintendo. Most excellent hardware, and I’m very very satisfied! Great for those who go to school or commute to their jobs, as the switch lite is so lightweight and portable. Good job, Nintendo!" —Mendamigo
