The Asus ROG Ally handheld gaming PC was already pretty competitively priced when it first launched earlier this year, with a model sporting a Zen 1 Extreme processor selling for $700 (or just $50 more than a top-tier Steam Deck, while delivering much better performance, if less compelling software).

But the entry-level $600 model with a Z1 processor is a tougher sell, since it’s not much cheaper, but delivers significantly less CPU and graphics performance. You know what makes it more attractive though? A $200 price cut. Right now Best Buy is selling the ROG Ally with a Z1 processor for $400 and a model with a Z1 Extreme chip for $600.

Meanwhile, if you’d rather have a device with an operating system purpose-built for handheld gaming, the Steam Deck is cheaper than ever. Prices for the current lineup start at $399 for a model with an LCD display and 256GB of storage, but Valve is also clearing out inventory of its 64GB model (with eMMC storage) by selling it for just $349 while supplies last.

Here are some of the day’s best deals.

  1. That Z1 model of the Ally for $399 is an insane deal. Too bad Best Buy doesn’t sell that model here in Canada. It looks like they only sell the Z1 Extreme model.

    Even being the lower model, at that price it absolutely blows the other low-end/mid-range x86 handhelds out of the water. Like the AYA Neo Air Plus models with Mendocino or the i3-1215u, which ended up being $549+, and might never actually release post-crowdfund by the looks of it.

    I’m tempted to order one even with the duty I’ll pay.
