Joking aside, it actually seems like a good device. It's twice the cost of a cheap switch, but indie games on steam are half the price compared to the nintendo store.
It's less than half of what you'd probably pay for the comparable devices that are on the market right now.
Valve is already selling it at a loss and they're likely to take down at least a couple of the other producers of handheld PCs, regardless of whether or not they've forgotten the deck exists this time next year.
It's like getting an ad-supported fire tablet on prime day because you're just going to run it through fire toolbox anyway.
