Somehow, the best deal we’ve seen at this year’s holiday sales period has come way after the Black Friday and Cyber Monday dust has settled. The ASUS ROG Ally Ryzen Z1 has dropped to $399 (was $600), giving gamers the chance to save a brilliant $200 from its MSRP. This will net you savings of 34%, but you should act fast. There’s no saying how long this deal is still going to be active, and there’s a very good chance that stocks are eaten up way before everyone gets the chance to pick one up. This is, after all, the lowest-ever price the ASUS ROG Ally has ever seen. We’ve qualified this using ThePriceCatcher.
This deal comes at an astonishing time – the bulk of holiday sales have only just finished, though with Christmas around the corner it’s likely that people are getting their shopping done early. The ASUS ROG Ally Ryzen Z1 variant is exactly just one of those Christmas gifts that people are going to be stunned to receive this year, and this discount makes it a perfect time to grab one of the best handheld games consoles available right now.
ASUS ROG Ally (AMD Ryzen Z1)
The ASUS ROG Ally Ryzen Z1 features 512GB storage alongside a 1080p display that’s capable of refreshing at 120Hz. While our Steam Deck OLED review sings praise for Valve’s device, it’s hard to see how it can compete with the ROG Ally when it’s priced this affordably. Not only is the ASUS ROG Ally more powerful, but it’s also running Windows 11. This gives players quite a bit more options with what games they play, as other handheld gaming PCs are limited to Linux and in some cases – Android.
As we run up towards the Christmas sales period, we’re not sure if there’s going to be a similar deal available for the device. Generally, we see the best deals and discounts peak towards the end of November as retailers look to capitalize on the festive spirit. If you’re looking for a handheld gaming PC capable of taking all the games you throw at it – the ASUS ROG Ally is what you’re looking for. When it’s priced this low – you’d be missing out if you pass it up.
