Deal: Get Asus ROG Ally With RM100 Discount Tonight
August 14, 2023 Andrew Cheng

The Asus ROG Ally went up for sale in Malaysia a couple of months ago, and if you’re still looking to buy one, good news. At the stroke of midnight, you can get the handheld gaming PC with a RM100 discount – not a huge amount, but still noteworthy.

This deal is offered by Asus brand store Just IT, a Shopee Mall retailer. The ROG Ally will be discounted to RM3,199 on 15 August this midnight in conjunction with the Shopee Mall Day sale. At the time of writing, only four units are left.

It’s worth noting that the 1TB SSD option for the Ally is not an official SKU from Asus Malaysia. Chances are, it’s an upgrade done by the retailer itself.

Anyway, compared to its main competition, the Steam Deck, the ROG Ally’s value proposition is good at this price point. Not only is it a more powerful handheld machine, it also has a number of advantages, including a higher resolution 7-inch 1920 x 1080 display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Steam Deck, on the other hand, has lower resolution 60Hz panel, though it has a taller 16:10 aspect ratio.

Aside from that, the ROG Ally can also be connected to the (proprietary) ROG XG Mobile external GPU enclosure for higher fidelity gaming. Other specifications of the Ally include 16GB of LPDDR5 dual-channel RAM, a 512GB PCIe Gen4 SSD, a microSD card slot for further storage expansion, as well as a lightweight chassis that tips the scales at 608g.

If you want to enjoy a RM100 discount on the Asus ROG Ally, purchase it from Just IT this midnight on Shopee. Do note that you may be able to use additional discount vouchers from Shopee and the retailer itself to get further discount on the handheld PC.
