    Lol this thread.

    Well if you want the real specs its in the all we know thread.

    Its for air there is also ports at the back and bottom. To vent heat there is not a fan in the switch or the dock it all works on venting and heat movement.

    Im sure nyko will make a fan tho they always do.

    That's the speaker.
    Clearly a path for entities to possess and power your device.

    Laptops exist and don't spontaneously explode due to cooling vents

    I believe that is a possibility and even a replacement for the dock should it include ports. The hard part is taking advantage of the switch's own cooling. None of the games manage to cause the unit to use the vents.

    Well, I know that I have quite a few holes. So, maybe you can have sexual intercourse with the switch. All joking aside, it's definitely for cooling.

    You guys got it all wrong. It's actually a port to connect the N64DD!

    Honestly if 3rd parties don't, I'll try to cobble together some sort of battery bank + fan attachment that plugs in the the USB port and stays on like a cover

    I know. It's for the bugs to get inside!

    Somewhere on this forum from a few years ago are some photos of a used Wii someone picked that was roach infested. They opened it up in the back of a pickup and there were hundreds of dead bugs. It is really gross.
