Last week we wrote about the Aya Neo Next coming to Australia next month, and it’s also now been confirmed that the Aya Neo Air Pro, Aya Neo’s soon-to-be-released smaller portable Windows computer, is also coming to Australian retailers.
It will be available from Amazon for $1,249, as well as from EB Games and JB Hi-Fi when it launches in November. It is a similar form factor to the Nintendo Switch Lite with a 5.5-inch 1080P OLED touchscreen. It has a 512 GB SSD and 16 GB RAM, as well as an AMD 5560U CPU. It’s slightly less powerful than its bigger brother, the AYA Neo Next, but is still great for AAA titles, as well as indie games and emulation. Unlike the Aya Neo NEXT, it runs its own operating system which is set up to provide better game management.
While it’s still pricey, it’s certainly exciting to see these new powerful handhelds make their way to Australian retailers while we wait for the Steam Deck to arrive, and no doubt this technology will continue to evolve over time. .
So to summarize the current range that Aya Neo is bringing to Australia:
Our review of the Aya Neo Next is coming in the next week or so and hopefully we’ll be able to cover the AYA Neo Air Pro later in the year as well.
