1,521skywakeSun 15th Aug 2021 All this talk of the Steam Deck got me realising how many games I have on PC I don't play because of the way I like to play games. And the Steam Deck is years away from an Australian release so I bit the bullet and got myself a laptop. Would've got a Switch Pro instead and pocketed the change if that was a thing but it's not so here we are. Putting my money where my mouth is. Nothing high end or "gaming" grade just a fairly mid-entry level machine. Ryzen 4500U so a bit over the Steam Deck spec on CPU but probably a bit under on GPU. Plenty for indie releases and 360 era games at 1080p and even some early XBOne era releases. For the stuff it can't run in-home streaming can fill the gaps. More than enough for my usage. Really, doesn't take much to get a fairly reasonable spec these days On a similar note, it's kinda crazy looking at reviews of this spec of laptop and it seems every other line is about how it's "not suitable for gaming". Then you look at the benchmarks and even this spec beats the mid-range desktop I built for myself 6 years ago. Crazy how fast things are moving when you stop and think about it, especially compared to the relatively slower pace between 2010 and 2015.
