    I won't be getting a switch until december but...
    I want to buy an unpatched one. Now yes, they are still available now, but will they be available until christmas?
    I want to play n64 games and even gamecube games on the go or on the big screen.

    You'll be on the save site with buying a used one I guess.

    You are crazy if you’re trying to buy a new one from a store.

    Ask your parents to buy it now and keep it in the attic or something.

    They will always be available but as time goes by they will be harder to find and their value will go up.

    Last time I checked a brand new Splatoon 2 Switch bundle was about $800 USD. They are guaranteed to be on FW 2.3, thus making them coldboot compatible; plus you pay more for something brand new and with colourful Splatoon 2 box art.

    A used unpatched Switch should cost about $300 USD. You might need to send the JoyCons to Nintendo for repairs and replace the digitiser (the plastic in front of the screen).

    Buy a used Switch and use this website as a guide.

    Forget about Coldboot. I saw that owning 2x1.0.0 consoles.

    I just sold a couple unpatched units on eBay for around $150. They can be found at a decent price as long as you dont mind getting just the tablet part itself without the joy-cons and other accessories.

    These are going to be very hard to find new in-store after the "battery life" refresh next month. The current model will all be clearanced well before Christmas. You wont even have the option of warmboot models.
