Valve Steam Deck

Yup, which is one of the reasons why I decided not to wait and got a laptop with Ryzen 6800HS, RDNA2 iGPU, RTX 3050 dGPU, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, 14" 120Hz 3K (1920p) display with adaptive sync (FreeSync & G-Synch both work) for only a bit more than the AYANEO 2 with the same RAM/SSD. Not a powerhouse gaming rig but good enough for everything I play and low power consumption (under 50W) when I stick to the iGPU.

But if one insists on the handheld form factor the AYANEO 2 might be worth the price.


I’m finding eBay a little odd, when it comes to the Steam Deck. The 64Gb model has, over the last few weeks of looking, sold for MORE than ordering direct from Valve.


Around £10/£20 more. Eh? Madness. Even if it’s been opened and used for a little bit. The 256Gb and 512Gb versions are selling for less. Maybe it’s because people want to upgrade straight to 1tb?!

P.s. I want one, again.
