Where I am, the Switch is around $380 msrp, but there are ways to get it heavily discounted, so it's really comparing two different things, considering the form factor and flexibility of the Switch. Mind you, I use an approx 10 year old system, so my need for 'powerful' PC isn't one. Though I suppose if I reused components I could probably get a cpu/mobo/ram for the same price. New Ryzen looking especially attractive. But if I had to complete build with monitor, legit windows, peripherals, case, psu etc... ? Noo way for that low of a cost.As a portable device, it's not really anything new(that I know of) other than the titles that will be offered for it, and its multiplayer ability. I think Nintendo is hoping more people have similar thinking, so that they can make more off people who already own the regular Switch as well. I think that's safe to say, when the Lite won't be supporting all functions of games(i.e. needing to buy additional joy cons). To me it's just a cell phone with dedicated hardware controls direct from Nintendo with proprietary software. If there was an ability too, and I think eventually there should be, I'd just run an emulator. Heck, I'd even rather now just run an emulator to play those 'FUN' games of the past.Yes, just that I think, that most removed features weren't exactly essential, so gains are big and loses are minimal.
