The Asus ROG Ally has arrived. The brand-new gaming handheld and Steam Deck competitor is available exclusively at Best Buy for $700. Orders placed now can arrive as soon as tomorrow, depending on your location. Best Buy stores also have the PC handheld on the shelf, so you order online and pick it up at your local Best Buy today. The ROG Ally has an impressive spec sheet and a growing library of official accessories, including a pro-style controller, carrying case, and charger dock for when you want to use the ROG Ally as a desktop PC.

You can check out the full specifications for the $700 ROG Ally below. The $600 version that releases in Q3 2023 will come with the AMD Ryzen Z1 processor, rather than the Z1 Extreme outlined below.

Since the ROG Ally is exclusive to Best Buy, it's certainly possible that the handheld could go in and out of stock. Keep in mind that the Steam Deck is also readily available to purchase directly from Valve. On the Windows handheld front, the Ally is joining a constantly growing market, including the very impressive and high-performing Ayaneo series of portable gaming PCs. Ayaneo has some great smaller options for those who think 7-inch gaming handhelds are a bit too big.
