Valve Steam Deck: The Best Portable Gaming PC at a Rare Discount

In the world of technology, it’s often Apple that steals the spotlight. However, this week, Valve took center stage with its Steam Deck handheld gaming device. This incredible piece of technology, which we consider the best portable gaming PC for most people, is now available at up to a 20% discount, matching its all-time low price.

To celebrate Steam’s 20th birthday, Valve has slashed the prices of its Steam Deck models. The entry-level version, with 64GB of eMMC storage, is now priced at $359. The 256GB and 512GB versions, which come with faster NVMe SSDs, are on sale for $450 and $519 respectively. These discounts are truly a rarity, as the Steam Deck’s price has only been reduced twice since its launch in February 2022. Valve has announced that this offer will continue until September 21st, giving gamers a rare opportunity to save on this fantastic device.

In our review, we rated the Steam Deck an impressive 81 out of 100, and it continues to secure its place as the best portable gaming PC for most people in our gaming handheld buying guide. While it may be a bit chunkier compared to its competitors, such as the Nintendo Switch, the Steam Deck offers significantly more power on the go. Its SteamOS software also makes it exceptionally user-friendly, simplifying the process of picking up and playing games. Additionally, for those who wish to connect the Steam Deck to their TV, Valve’s official Steam Deck Docking Station is also available at a 20% discount for $71.

But the Steam Deck isn’t the only gem on sale this week. There are plenty of exciting deals across the tech world that are worth checking out. Let’s take a closer look at what’s on offer.
