One thing I wanted the Switch lite to have was Circle pads like the 3DS as they would have added to portability factor (even if by a little) and would end my concern over durability of the current analog sticks Nintendo use.

Nope. I've maybe used my Switch in handheld mode 5 times since ive had it? Ive had it for over a year. I prefer docked mode.

I'm waiting for the Switch Lite.

Switch Lite is a downgrade imo from my current Switch so no point in getting it.

I asked my girlfriend if she wanted one, and she didn't. Will wait till the Switch Pro, and then maybe giver her my old one.

Switch lite really isn't a replacement Switch for most people, I think.

I don't know what I'll do about it yet.

I never sell old hardware. While I do hate the idea of physical media and want as little of it as possible, the actual hardware it's played on has value to me - even if updated hardware is seemingly superior and capable of playing most to all of the old software. There's nothing quite like playing an NES game on the NES, even with all its problems; although, I CANNOT abide by broken saves! Which is why I actually usually use the Wii, Classic Mini, or Switch to play old NES games now.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Yes. I use it only as a handheld. Will grab the Pokemon special edition if I can.

At best I'll switch from no Switch to a Switch Pro if the latter has good specs worthy of the currently available technology. There are a few games I'm interested in such as BOTW, Metroid Prime 4 and Super Mario Odyssey. All other Nintendo first party games I don't care for and third party games I can get for much cheaper on Playstation.
