Update: It appears Dell may have already sold out of stock. Searches for "Nintendo Switch Lite" no longer land on the Switch Lite product page. QVC has it in stock with Crash Bandicoot and accessories for $329.

The coronavirus pandemic is wreaking havoc across all aspects of life. On the tech front, it has led to a Switch shortage leaving gamers wondering where to buy the Nintendo Switch. While the Switch is still impossible to find at this moment, one retailer just got stock of the Nintendo Switch Lite. 

Currently Dell has stock of the Nintendo Switch Lite in most colors. And while many third-party vendors have inflated the cost of the Switch Lite, Dell is selling it at its list price of $199.99. By comparison, Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy have no Switch Lite stock at the time of this writing.
