What’s our favorite feature of the Switch? Well, it’s a portable and a traditional console, as you can dock into the included stand to hook it up to a TV or just bring the Switch with you. It features a 6.2-inch display with a left and right Joy-Con attached to either side. There are a ton of games for it, like Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Pokémon Sword. The best part? The console is actually in stock.

The Switch Lite is a portable-only Switch that can play the same games and costs a lot less. It’s just $199 and comes in four fun colors: turquoise, gray, coral and yellow. You’ll be playing on a 5.5-inch screen, and the whole thing weighs a super-light 0.61 pounds.

The latest generation of Pokémon is $20 off now at Best Buy. Pick between Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield and explore the Galar region, packed with new Pokémon and trainers to battle.

Twelve South AirFly ($30.10, originally $44.99; amazon.com)
Yes, the Switch and Switch Lite feature a headphone jack, but sadly you can’t pair Bluetooth earbuds or headphones to the console.

It works like a charm.
