Nintendo Switch (HAC-001(-01))

Nintendo Switch (HAC-001(-01))

This model ranked #4 among Consoles priced over $ in terms of bang-for-the-buck.

The Nintendo Switch is the game console you can either use in the living room as a "regular" game console, or on the move as a tablet. This slight revision of the original Switch looks mostly identical except for improved battery life.
