Ok, I purchased the original Steam Deck back in 2022 thanks to Mighty Ape, and I loved it. It was my Xmas present to myself, to me love me. It was comfortable to hold, powerful enough for the games I wanted to play and the battery life was decent. I put many many hours into it. But, and this goes back to the games I played a lot, always in the back of my mind was the screen. It wasn't bad per se`, but it looked washed out, especially playing games of a certain type like the Resident Evil franchise, Control, Alan Wake, Mark of the Ninja, etc. The new Steam Deck OLED by contrast (tee hee ;-) is just superb!!! It is everything I wanted the first edition to be. Same great ergonomics, lighter, slightly faster, better battery life and an exceptional screen that does HDR :-o Highly recommended. And thanks again Mighty Ape for holding the fort for us folks in NZ, much love.
