    Nintendo Switch Lite Officially Revealed - $199, September 20th, Dedicated Handheld

    in Nintendo Discussion on 10 July 2019

    It really was no surprise. The cheaper alternative to the 3DS, the 2DS released the same time as Pokemon X/Y for a reason, and with the upcoming release of Sword/Shield, this was a no-brainer. Also, Nintendo/Nvidia can utilise Tegra processors off the manufacturing line that have slight defects, where the GPU cannot run in full 1080p TV mode, but can happily handle 720p handheld mode.

That is why Optane can achieve...

    I find it ironic, that the LNP voters, who always complain about the low income getting so much welfare kicking up a horrendous stink when one party chooses to close tax loopholes that they themselves exploit. Negative gearing and franking credits are only going to put exponential amounts of financial pressure on the budget in the coming years. Just goes to show...smear tactics beats good policy...
