Ayaneo’s underpowered Steam Deck competitor is now on sale for just $299.

No need to crowdfund — you can just up and buy it right here for its Early Bird price. There’s a lot to like about its design. But it’s unlikely its old Ryzen 5 4500U will even approach a $349 Steam Deck LCD in performance. I tested the very first Ayaneo, which came with that chip, and the Deck beat it soundly.

Also, it will no longer come with any flavor of SteamOS. It’s a Windows machine now.
