Apparently runs stuff pretty well at 720p (Jedi Fallen Order and Doom Eternal), but highlight is obviously OBVIOUSLY being able to access your entire Steam library! If nothing else, it's a hella indie games machine for the stuff you don't necessarily need all the bells and whistles for. Target 2021 release. Discuss.
