That thing is fucking big.

I have a Razor 15 with a 3080 in it, might buy one of these too because why the F not.
Yeah. I pre-ordered one as well just cause well, I only have a desktop. Once I start traveling again this would be way better than doing Xbox live pass from my tablet.

Nice.

Slightly on the fence because I have a Switch that I never use. That's mostly due to the lack of interesting games though, if I had my whole Steam library available on a similar device I'd probably use it a lot more often.

Yeah. My wife has a switch too and she goes through her stints of using it and not. I know I won't use this as much as my PC but it will definitely get used when I'm hanging out on the couch or traveling or something.

kind of depends what kind of games you usually play on steam. if all you play is CS:GO or Dota or something like that i can’t imagine this being too appealing.

My PC is a Best Buy special from 2017, it can’t run much on Steam and is mostly my daughter’s PC now for Roblox.

I might buy this instead of the new Series Xbox.

it’ll be curious to see what game performance and graphical capability is like compared to the new Xbox. at the very least there’s a much bigger and better library of games to play on Steam

The Nvidia shield tablet Congress to mind reading this.

I don't know if they still do that but the shield was awesome back in the day. Just give us a new version of that with a steam label

Kind of weird since you can buy Battlefield on Steam now, but I think you still need origin. No clue how they'll handle that.
I don't know how origin handles it's games. Nfs the run, sim city, and sim city societies (don't make fun I love that simple game) don't show up in it, I have to launch them from something else which opens origin to play them.
