The AYANEO Air is the latest handheld PC to enter a crowded market, but it has some pretty cool distinguishing characteristics: it’s ultra small for what it can do, and features a beautiful OLED panel with 1080p resolution. Let’s take a deep dive look at this handheld and see if it’s worth the $500+ asking price. Additionally, is it supposed to be a “Steam Deck killer” or a “Switch killer”? I can never keep them straight.
