    I pre-ordered two switch lites. I have a regular switch as well. one lite is for me and the other for my daughter that never uses docked mode. Don't care if its hackable or not, that's what my original switch is for.

    Like all consoles, in time, they all become vulnerable to hacking, the switch lite will be no different

    Nay, the joy-con problems would be even worse and i don't like that the full console will have a color.

    Patched systems on 8.0.0 and higher will probably never be hackable.

    It's very stupid to claim a console will never be hackable.

    Then it's a good thing I didn't do that. I said it probably won't be hackable.

    The Switch lite won't be hacked just like the Wii mini. It feels like deja vu

    wii mini is effectively unhacked, xbox one is unhacked, ps4 is only half hacked since new firmware is still unhacked making a solid portion of the library unplayable on a hacked console, ps3 slim + SS weren't hacked til 2 months ago which is well past the point of it being a relevant console (not to mention the CFW/hack itself is ridiculously unstable)

    Plus Nintendo has basically been raked over the coals for how wide open all of their previous hardware was.

    if any nintendo console won't be hacked... it's this one (moving forward now that both entry points are patched)

    I want a Lite, the regular Switch is too heavy for me for extended handheld play.
    When I buy a new Switch game I play it on the TV for a few hours to enjoy to graphics and then I spend the remainder in handheld mode.

    I prefer handheld gaming because TV screens give me headaches after a short while.

    I'm not holding my breath for a Switch Lite exploit, but it would be awesome. A Switch with retroarch is hands down the best retro game experience I've ever had.

    Having that in a more portable form factor would be sweet.

    Neither... gimme a proper home console or a true handheld, not this hybrid nonsense that is "neither fish nor fowl".

    The Switch Lite is designed only as a cheaper alternative for parents, students etc. to buy, it makes no sense for those that can afford the regular one.
    Even if you usually only play handheld having the option to play docked is important for multiplayer games like Mario Kart and Smash.

    Where there's a will, there's a way.
    I suspect similar hacking techniques to that of the vita, and what not
    Also modified game cards could be a possible entry point

    I hope so, but remember too there were big bounties that lead to the current Switch hacks. Those bounties are not in place for Mariko
