Which model did you reserve and when is your expected availability?

Yeah, 512GB but for Q2.

Only good thing is that it means that if the M.2 is easy to replace, it might give me time to swap for the 64GB model if I feel like it.

I got the 64GB model. I kind of regret it... Only because now I wish I went for the most expensive one! I'm very excited for it, especially because I've been using my Vita lately and appreciating handheld gaming again.

EDIT: Mine is arriving Dec 2021

I also regret not going for the best one, but like everyone else I'm hoping the SSD will be easy to upgrade so it won't matter too much.

I bought mine assuming the SSD would be upgradeable (though I would have liked the 512GB's glass screen...). I'm okay with using an SD card, honestly, but a nice big nvme would be exciting.

I got my 512gb model reserved but its not coming until Q2 2022. Seriously I have no idea why anyone would even bother with the 64GB model....

It could be an ok SKU if you only play certain/smaller games (512GB mSD cards can also be bought for around £50-70) or plan to upgrade the M.2 storage.

Although it’s unknown how difficult it will be.

256GB model, Q1 2022. Already bought a 1TB m.2 drive that will fit Steam Deck in case it's easily swappable, but if not it'll just remain an extra storage drive.

Yeah, 512GB but for Q2.

Only good thing is that it means that if the M.2 is easy to replace, it might give me time to swap for the 64GB model if I feel like it.
Switching models would send you to the back of the line, but I guess that's not such a big deal when going from Q2 to Q3.

Cuz justifying $400 to my wife is easier then 650$… plus I end up opening and modding/tickering with almost every electronic I own.. best believe I will install aftermarket ssd..

I found my arrival date by going to the steam deck store page,as if I were to buy one again. There, it says I have one pre ordered and when it'll ship.

I just found it as you were replying to me lol, thanks for that info all the same... Q2 next year sounds like such a long time away

I'm more interested to know how @Chary 's dad is doing. I said a prayer for him last night. I didn't get on my hands and knees and assume the position. I said it in my mind, because I figured God would hear me regardless.
