The Nintendo Switch game console alone retails for $299 and has three play modes: TV, tabletop, and handheld. This system is available in two variants — neon blue & red or gray Joy-Cons. 

Sister site Tom's Guide reviewed the Nintendo Switch and were impressed by the system's versatility and smartly designed controls. They gave the Switch a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and the Editor's Choice award stamp of approval.

Generally speaking, the classic Nintendo Switch and handheld-only Switch Lite rarely get discounted outside of the holidays. Due to its increasing demand, finding the classic Nintendo Switch in stock is not as easy as it used to be. However, select retailers offer Switch deals that include a Switch console bundled with a game and/or accessories. Although they may cost more, Switch console bundles offer the best value compared to buying the components separately.

If you plan on using your Switch solely for handheld gaming, the Switch Lite might be the better choice. The handheld-only Nintendo Switch Lite retails for $199 and is smaller and lighter than the standard Switch. It's also more likely to be found stock at just about every game retailer.  

Sister site Tom's Guide reviewed the Switch Lite and loved its gorgeous, comfortable design and portability. They gave it the Editor's Choice award for its good battery life and stellar game library. The Switch Lite is available in a range of colors including coral, gray, turquoise, and yellow.
