For $75 it's a no brainer for me & my family.
Battery life would be the only thing. Controllers can be switched and Ive never had(heard of) problems with the NIC.

Nintendo shut down pretty much all exploits with newer revisions of switches so I wouldnt expect anything else. If you want a modded switch youre going to have to find an old one.

I’m looking at grabbing one during the holidays. Should be nice to have while I’m deployed.. I’m not sure what the big deal is about a “pro” though. The battery life will be awful if they go with a high-powered system, and how do you keep that kind of hardware cool? It’s already heat-soaking from your greasy nerd fingers, and putting a fan in there is no good due to the portability portion being important.

The switch is good the way it is as long as they focus on efficiency.

So you're saying that Nintendo is good at securing its consoles against exploits? Can you think of another Nintendo console that has ever not been hacked?

Despite you're username, sometimes you're not so logical!

I have no clue about the Nintendo homebrew scene. Im saying that if youre using homebrew as a way of justifying a new switch thats not a good point.

As I recall, the guys who hacked the gamecube discovered that the secret key that protected the system was "Mario". Then Nintendo changed it on the Wii to something like "Mar1o".

Well it's not just Nintendo, Nvidia was the reason why the switch got hacked in the first place, because Nvidia left a exploit in the Tegra chipset. Which since got fixed in the hardware revision that came out sometime last year.

It's not impossible at this point, just extremely unlikely. Nintendo has beefed up the software side of the protection, while Nvidia fixed the hardware faults.
