Last Week on TekAdvisor (August 12th, 2019)

Hi everyone, how was your week?

Here, on TekAdvisor, I had to work even harder than usual to keep track of prices over time but still; I've managed to create a bit of new content on the site. Determining compatibility with the Nintendo Switch Lite required a bit of a revamp, but I think I got the system up to speed.

Speaking of the Switch, we have two models coming up; they're not here yet, but preorders have started. If you were considering using the original Switch as a tablet, I still recommend waiting for the new model, since it boasts significant improvements in battery life.

Also, I would appreciate it if you could take a peek at this article I wrote about my experience with Amazon and what I think they do best.
