The Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite are like a tag-team duo of gaming for everyone. The top-selling consoles have performed incredibly well in our testing — and when we’re just gaming, they’re a joy.

Consoles are in stock!
What’s our favorite feature of the Switch? Well, it’s a portable and a traditional console, as you can dock into the included stand to hook it up to a TV or just bring the Switch with you. It features a 6.2-inch display with a left and right Joy-Con attached to either side. There are a ton of games for it, like Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Pokémon Sword. The best part? The console is actually in stock.
The Switch Lite is a portable-only Switch that can play the same games and costs a lot less. At $199, it comes in four fun colors: turquoise, gray, coral and yellow. You’ll be playing on a 5.5-inch screen, and the whole thing weighs a super-light 0.61 pounds.
Right now a plethora of titles for the Nintendo Switch are on sale. Better yet, you get your choice of a physical copy or a download code.

Twelve South AirFly ($24.99, originally $44.99; amazon.com)
Yes, the Switch and Switch Lite feature a headphone jack, but sadly you can’t pair Bluetooth earbuds or headphones to the console. It’s something we hope Nintendo fixes in the next generation, but accessory maker TwelveSouth has a solution: The AirFly plugs into the headphone jack and casts a Bluetooth signal for your earbuds to connect to. It works like a charm.
