Asus ROG Ally Gets A Substantial Discount At Best Buy For Black Friday

All customers can take advantage of this discount, but My Best Buy Plus/Total members get the best price.


If you're interested in grabbing a portable gaming PC equipped with Windows, the Asus ROG Ally offers the best bang for your buck. Powered by the new AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme chipset, the Asus ROG Ally has stellar performance for the price. Over at Best Buy, you can get the Asus ROG Ally for $620 (down from $700) during the retailer's Black Friday sale. My Best Buy Plus/Total members can get an additional discount that drops the price to $600.

Even at its regular $700, the high-end ROG Ally is a pretty great value. Sure, it's more expensive than the Steam Deck (even the new Steam Deck OLED), but it supports far more games out of the box thanks to running Windows.

The ROG Ally has a seven-inch 1080p screen with 120Hz refresh rate. The discounted model is the more powerful variant equipped with the AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme CPU, 16GB LPDDR5 6400 RAM, and AMD RDNA3-based GPU--specs strong enough to run the newest games with great performance. The ROG Ally also supports AMD FreeSync and Dolby Atmos surround sound, and comes with a free three-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass.


The handheld ships with a 512GB SSD, but you can expand its storage capacity with select UHS-II MicroSD cards or by upgrading to a larger internal SSD like the WD-Black SN770M Internal SSD, which also happens to be discounted.

Along with the additional discount on the ROG Ally, other paid My Best Buy perks include free two-day shipping, an extended 60-day return window, member-exclusive offers like this ROG Ally discount, and more. You can join My Best Buy Plus or Total at Best Buy's website.
