OLED Switch has obviously a bigger better screen than the OG Switch as well as better sound, battery, kickstand, and dock with LAN port. So, if you are a getting a Switch for the first time, go for the OLED. But if you play mostly docked or want to mod, get the OG one. No need to spend extra on an OLED if you play on the big screen. Now where is the 4k Switch, Nintendo?

I managed to get TWO of these, just in case any extended family need a Switch for Christmas for anyone.  I can always return them after Christmas...

 

I have a launch Switch unit.   I'd upgrade if I could get a decent price for my launch unit... the $270 Gamestop trade deal might have been my best bet, right?  I know that at one point launch Switches were in demand due to hackability, but...

Yeah the GS deal was the one to go with. After fees/shipping on ebay and such, you would get less than the $270. I dont see the value increasing more than that on this version especially after the holidays. This is for the system itself. Obviously you could unload some games and accessories to bundle with the system to get more.

I listed my launch Switch on FB for $400 and sold it pretty easily for $375 shipped.  It had a scratch on the screen but it was on the bottom left and was on the plastic part that wasn't actually over the "screen" and was on the bezel part.

 

I did mod it myself before listing it and listed it as an unbanned modded Switch, and included the jig with it (which was like $6 on Amazon), as well as a 64gb microSD card.

There was a stack of 20 OLED switches at my Best Buy. I think these things are easy to get now.

The switch lites are nowhere to be found.

Those are the worst version of the Switches IMO

I’d take a switch lite oled. Can’t play switch games on a tv it’s just not for me.

The form factor is really nice. I wouldn’t want it to be my only switch. But secondary on the go switch? Perfect.

Randomly saw 3 in a case at Walmart today; likely not so hard to find now

I will never understand why they made the Lite unable to be docked. If it could be docked I’d have one just for portable gaming.

Because it costs money and would change the internal structure.
