I'm not sure why people can sometimes get worked up over what others consider the Switch. What people define the Switch really doesn't matter, what matters is it's a very successful system that tens of millions of people are enjoying. Semantic arguments like this rarely go anywhere and are almost always pointless.

Agreed.  And I am a perfect example.  I have owned every MS, Sony and Nintendo home console to date.  I have never owned a portable console, small screen and stereo sound isn't my thing.  I own and love my Switch.  The Switch appeals to home gamers and portable gamers alike.  It was a brilliant move on Nintendo's part.  Regardless of people forcing their opinions on others.  

Ultimately being able to play on the big screen in high definition, 5.1 surround sound, couch coop, removable wireless controllers sold me the Switch.  If those features didn't exist, I wouldn't own one.

Wait so if your choice was the mobile only Switch Lite then you wouldn't have purchased one?  But with the Switch that has the ability to be played on your TV (no additional purchase required - hooks to any TV with an HDMI input) you decided to make the purchase based off of that feature?

Correct.  I would not have purchased a Switch if it were mobile only.
