I'm thinking about getting one of those lite thingies for my train commute. A few questions.

1) Should I just get a second hand normal switch instead? Bit bulkier for dropping in the bag, but not much heavier as far as I can tell.
b) I'll be using it on dodgy train wifi, so anything online is a no-go I expect, i'm assuming offline play is totally whizzo.
iii) The last Nintendo console I had was a GameCube (which was also my first Nintendo console), so assuming I have no rose tinted glasses or attachment to previous IP, what games should I be looking at? I enjoyed Mario Kart on the GC but I assume it won't be amazing single player offline, same for Smash Bros. I'm considering some sort of Zelda shit, or Skyrim, as I haven't played that yet.
$) No bluetooth headphones, what the fuck.

Second hand Switches on ebay seem ridiculously expensive, I think I would prefer to get a new Lite, rather than paying £50 more for a secondhand Switch. Especially as it will never be plugged into a TV.

Are you sure though? I use mine in handheld mode for 90% of the time but it is nice to plug it into a proper TV sometimes and experience the games on the big screen.

We use ours almost exclusively on the TV and only handheld when we’ve been away visiting family a few days to play a few moments before sleep.

I think I've mentioned this before but I expected to use mine docked for the most part but 95% of the time play handheld.
