    "With the Switch Lite, I can play games for hours without getting bored, and it can easily fit into my jacket pocket. I actually already owned the original Switch console and really loved it, but found it was a little too bulky and heavy to carry with me every day (plus my hands would get tired holding onto it)."—Sarah Aspler
