though I still wouldn't given Nintendo my CC number or buy game add-ons if they have those; not sure. couldn't confirm online if the switch is wifi capable, although in this day and age, it seems idiot developers are willing to put a chip in anything.
The Switch is Wi-Fi capable but it's not required to have a connection to play like many games out there. I don't give them my CC#, if I want to buy something from their online store I just buy one of those cards in the grocery checkout line and load it at home.

I've never been a fan of handheld gaming and thought I would leave the switch in the dock all the time. This has not turned out to be true. They did a great job making the transition easy, you don't have to restart the machine or anything.

Exactly. Outside of my phone I had never owned any handheld gaming device. I got a Gameboy when I was a kid and returned it shortly after. Just was never my thing.

I also expected a severe loss of quality when I undocked the switch. I've noticed no difference so far, and I've actually read that fps has been slightly better on games like Doom and Skyrim when undocked but I haven't played those games on Switch yet myself.

You know how some enemies throw rocks if they can't get to you. I was shooting an arrow at a baddie when it was throwing a rock and the rock and arrow hit in the air. Unexpected game physics! I haven't looked anything up online, so I'm sure I haven't discovered half of what you can do, but figuring out what the game will allow to happen has been great.

You can also bat rocks back with your sword like you're playing baseball. So much of the environment is interactive, I find myself saving a game and just trying to clear camps of baddies in different ways.

I also haven't looked up anything with this game. One of the very few games where if you get stuck, it's not actually a drag. More often then not I stop playing because my battery died, not because I wanted to stop.
