Android has an app called Steam Link that lets you stream remotely from your PC to your phone. Throw in a Razer Kishi or similar and you have a budget Steam Deck anywhere you have a strong enough internet connection.

Presumably you can do something similar with the actual Steam Deck since it's mostly just Remote Desktop with some extra support.

Oooh neat!

I’ll take it I need to make sure I leave steam open as well right? It won’t open it automatically for me?
