It doesn't matter the TF as long the software delivers. Let your friend think what he wants as long as you can enjoy it.
Tbh as long as a peice of hardware gets software made for its capabilities and its great, the power of a device really isnt a issue.
It only matters if you have trouble attracting others to help do so, for your platform.
and even though the Switch isnt nearly as powerfull as the others, its selling well, there will be games for it.
