This is interesting, this is what Nintendo should've made the Switch Pro to be. Since you can install Windows on it, I can probably use it as a tablet/laptop in a pinch. I reserved the 256GB version, hopefully this will fair better than the Steam Box.

Okay, I still want to see a teardown, but I am putting in my order.

Linus' coverage is probably the most detailed so far. The only thing I hope is that the 15w TDP can be modified to 25w when plugged in. For non-custom APUs there are tools to set this, let's hope AMD/Valve doesn't lock it down. I plan to bring this on trips and I usually will have some kind of power source, so letting it run at 25w TDP will squeeze out a bit more power. Currently it's shown to be able to run Doom Eternal at 800p in low/medium, maybe 25w TDP will allow an all medium setting.

Same, got the email that says the launch is delayed. But when I checked the reservation page it still shows Q2 2022 for me.
