Thanks daddy.

Battery and thermals seem disappointing though for the form factor I guess I shouldn't be surprised. A lot of detail in this video I need to go back and watch.

EDIT: Adding LTT review

Seems better than its competition.



Never watched this guy before.

Edit: After watching the reviews, I have no concerns about my reservation. It exceeds my expectations (off of games shown) and provides that at a price point much lower than the Neo/One X. Will I use it daily/weekly, probably not? Will I leave my laptop/switch at home and take this when we are traveling backpack only on Easyjet/Ryan Air, yes.

I guess I'll put this here:

This repository contains CAD files for the external shell (surface topology) of Steam Deck, under a Creative Commons license. This includes an STP model, STL model, and drawings (DWG) for reference.

We're looking forward to seeing what the community creates! Please reach out to us at SteamDeckExternal@valvesoftware.com with any questions, feedback, requests, and most importantly – interesting creations.

As mentioned in our “Take a look inside Steam Deck” video, you have every right to open up your Steam Deck and do what you want with it. That said, we highly recommend you leave it to professionals. Any damage you do will not be covered by your warranty – but more importantly, you might break your Steam Deck, or even get hurt! Be careful, and have fun.

A few oddities in the menu and other OS niggles, but I'm certain Valve will take the feedback and make improvements. I'm excited, can't wait!
