Valve has done a great job with Steam Deck, getting it into as many hands as possible over the past year. Just recently, it became possible to purchase one without pre-ordering, meaning you could have it as soon as two weeks after placing an order. In addition to expedited sales, hardware support has been strengthened, with the company opening up a number of service centers to handle repairs. If interested, you can purchase one from Valve directly, with the handheld console starting at $399.
