Lilbits: Another Celeron N5105 Mini PC, Variable Refresh Rates For Chrome OS And All Portable Gaming PCs Now Face Steam Deck Comparisons

Ever since Valve announced it was developing a portable gaming PC, the comparison has been hard to resist. Other PDAs from companies such as GPD, One Netbook and AYA on Steam Deck. Now that the Steam Deck has actually started shipping and the first reviews have arrived, those comparisons have become inevitable.

And it’s obvious why: Steam Deck has the most powerful GPU of any other handheld to date, and it also has one of the lowest price tags – you can easily spend 2-3 times more for an AYA Neo Next or ONEXPLAYER than you would. spend on a Steam Deck. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t good reasons to spend the extra money yet … they probably won’t be good reasons for most people to justify the payment of the premium

The Verge review of AYA Neo Next is a prime example. What is apparently a review of AYA’s second-generation handheld is as much about comparing it to the Steam Deck as it is about what you can actually do with the AYA Neo Next itself. The review is still worth reading though, as it really emphasizes that there is room for niche devices like the Next.
