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, it’s hard to resist the comparison. other handhelds from companies such as GPD, One Netbook, and AYA on the Steam Deck. Now that the Steam Deck has started shipping and the first reviews have arrived, those comparisons have become inevitable.

And it’s obvious why: the Steam Deck has the most capable GPU of any handheld to date, and it also has one of the lowest prices: you can easily spend 2-3x as much on a AYA Neo Next or ONEXPLAYER that you’d upgrade to 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 enough reasons to more people to justify the payment of the premium

The Verge’s review of the AYA Neo Next is a prime example. What’s apparently a review of AYA’s second-gen handheld is as much about how it compares 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, as it really shows that there is room for niche devices like the Next.
