Asus ROG Ally pre-orders: sign up for notifications at Best Buy

Steam Deck has dominated the portable PC market since its release in 2022. Its success seems to have inspired other major PC gaming companies to dive into the world of portable PCs. Although the Steam Deck will probably be hard to beat when it comes to performance for the price, Valve’s handheld will soon have a big-name competitor: the Asus ROG ally. A Windows-based gaming laptop, the Asus ROG Ally is gearing up for a global launch that “it may be sooner than you expect.” Details about the device are still hazy, but you can sign up for Best Buy pre-order notifications.

Again, most of these details come from early speculation and leaks, so until Asus reveals any concrete details, the only thing we know for sure is what the handheld looks like. We also don’t have pricing details yet, but don’t expect Ally to launch at Steam Deck price points. That being said, hopefully not. also much more expensive than Valve’s popular handheld.

An exact release date hasn’t been revealed, but based on Asus’ messages so far, it looks like we won’t have long to wait. And based on the initial hype, it’s likely to be a hot product, especially if it launches at a reasonable price. If you’re looking to grab one at launch, be sure to sign up for notifications, which only requires an email, as quantities are likely to be limited.

Don’t want to wait for ROG Ally? Then consider picking up a steam Deck, which is available to buy directly from Valve. On the Windows handheld front, Ally joins an ever-growing market, including the very impressive and high performance Ayaneo series of gaming notebook PCs.
