There’s nothing I love more than curling up on the couch with a handheld gaming device. Whether I’m playing an old classic like The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap or a relaxing farming sim like Stardew Valley, it’s one of my favorite ways to unwind at the end of the day. Now you can do it for a lot cheaper than before. Best Buy is currently selling the Asus ROG Ally for $399.99, which is $100 off of the new $499.99 and $200 off the original $599 price. In our review of the pricier model, we were impressed with the gaming performance as well as the beautiful 120Hz display.

This is the entry-level model of the Asus ROG Ally. It boasts an AMD Ryzen Z1 processor, 16GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and a 1080p 120Hz touchscreen display. If you want a Windows-based handheld, then this is one of the more compelling options available right now. In terms of price, it’s on par with the Steam Deck entry level model, but the ROG Ally has faster memory and a higher resolution screen — plus, you know, it runs full-blown Windows, unlike the Steam Deck.

If you’re looking to pick up a portable gaming device, then the Asus ROG Ally will definitely scratch that itch. This is a great deal, so you better jump on it now.
