I actually decided to go with a Steam Deck to replace my very old laptop. I do have to carry more extras like a monitor, a dock, keyboard/mouse combo, etc.... but I think the trade off was worth it. Especially for the price.
I also love my deck but I'm confused by one line in the review; "palm-shaking haptic feedback"
I have never noticed the haptic feedback in anyway and especially in games with just "rumble" support don't work in the slightest. Neither my, my brother's or my friend's deck has any noticeable haptic feedback outside the gentle hum from some officially supported titles.
