If you really want something on the go and don't have a Switch i'd say its really convenient to have. But if your someone who prefers to just be on a PC or console set up. It's just a neat novelty. While it's definitely a good product and can easily earn its worth. I always viewed it as a party trick kinda thing. A "hey check this out" but gets little use outside of maybe getting trapped at a family members house for a reunion you didn't really care to go to. Maybe a few sessions in bed. But I'd personally rather just be sitting and playing at my desk so i might as well just be on my PC. (edited)

Do you like to play games in public environments? Do you do it often (or think that you will)? Do you mind the extra weight on your purse (or whatever bag you use)? If it's yes for the first 2 questions and no for the third, go for it.... Oh also, do you have the money for it? I think it's a bit pricy

Custom handheld consoles might be better than Steam Deck. ASUS has one, and it's way better than a Steam Deck right now.

If you want the portability, then I would say so. Do you like indie games? Itโ€™s the perfect system for them. Yes you can play some AAA games on it, but most indie titles will run perfectly. You can also dock it at a monitor or tv screen and play it if you arenโ€™t on the go that much. And letโ€™s face it, steam is the best platform for games.

Yes, it is worth it, it does a job well...IF you really want a handheld for PC games <- this part is important as it only offers alternative way to play games that run better on average PC, so it must matter to you. Btw, I never regretted buying it.

All I'm going to say is it's good but it's worth researching and considering these factors before making a decision.

Ive got one but any time Iโ€™ve taken it outside the house its stayed in my bag (Worth noting this isnโ€™t because of opportunity but entirely getting weirded out by people watching over my shoulder). I basically only use it in bed when I donโ€™t want to drag myself to my pc. I donโ€™t regret buying it but if I had a redo I probably wouldnโ€™t.

I love mine, I have a dock to hook it up to my tv and I use a wireless mouse and keyboard with it for sofa surfing on the web or playing more casual games. Great bit of kit.

It's great for playing in bed or around the house, on a plane or a hotel. I wouldn't play it outside. Otherwise I've been so happy with mine. Especially for emulation.

I travel for work (truck driver) and the steam deck has been a lifesaver for me personally. Also saves me ton of space in the truck, my only gripe is the verification system for steam. It's really hit or miss

If you already have a Switch, and you want That But PC, then yeah. If you don't already have a Switch, then consider getting that first.

I mean for the price I think I would wait for a massive discount before purchasing it I mean don't get me wrong it blows the switch out of the water but you have to remember it basically is a portable steam console as it's incredibly big so you would have to get used to carrying that around all the time not to mention it has the energy of steal me because I'm worth a lot of money

Not really unless you are on the road a ton or commuting for a long time. 2 of my friends got them and they just kinda sit there, collecting dust.

When you go down south? Like literally moving southwards or being sad and wanting to lay in bed and be cosy to cheer up? Besides that... Imho playing in bed is kinda uncomfortable depending on the game
