    "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). It’s also cheaper than the original system, so you can use that extra cash to buy some games. I also find that it feels more robust than the original, as it’s a solid piece and doesn’t have joy-cons that slide off and on.Sarah Aspler.
