The Asus ROG Ally is a PC gaming handheld, one of many that launched after the Steam Deck took the portable market by storm. And, unlike other variants, the ROG Ally is an immediate standout thanks to its gorgeous white and light chassis that lets you hold it up for hours.

Right now the Asus ROG Ally is on sale for $299 if you get it open box and $399 for a new version at Best Buy. Even the new model is cheaper than Amazon's current pricing of $499, which means you should take advantage now.

Compared to other PC gaming handhelds like the Lenovo Legion Go and even Steam Deck, this discount places its price lower than that. It beats out the lowest price on Amazon by at least $100 and up to $200, which is an incredible that you need to take advantage of now while it lasts.
