    What do switches come with for firmware now or even a month ago? They aren't all fully updated are they? Should it be firmware 2.0.0?

    thank you. i plan to buy one thats 'new in box' as the seller claims w/ receipt, asking $340. i want to power it on in front of him, check it all out look for obvious signs of use, and this would be one of them.

    Why would you pay more than the retail price? Its not like Switch's are impossible to find out there.

    Well retail is $299 plus tax, so $318. and I can't find any anywhere right now. I just called 14 stores within 60 min drive. So...... paying $22 extra doesn't sound horrible

    I mean realistically, he only makes a $22 profit, its not that big of a deal..... and as long as its not damaged or used and he has receipt for warranty purposes, I assume that's all I need for the future?

    You shouldn't support scalping at all, no matter how small the extra cost is.

    <10% over retail after his 18% sales tax isn't scalping.

    18% tax sound like robbery though. What state is that? sheesh.

    I did say extra cost though. If thats the case it would be indeed robbing the "scalper"

    No, they are still on 1.0.0 anywhere in stores this year of 2017. You should be fine. We will buy one this fall so.. No worries.
