PiBoy XRS Details (March Pre-Order)

https://experimentalpi.com/PiBoy-XRS--Kit_p_59.html  It looks like the PiBoy XRS will be available for pre-order or sale by the end of next month (March) for $149.95. It will come partially assembled and require you to have a Raspberry Pi 4B, a charger and a microSD card which are additional expenses.  That all totals out to a fairly expensive handheld for the aging Pi gaming scene but it looks to be very high quality. This is definitely geared towards people who like to tinker with systems and don't mind a little DIY assembly work.  What keeps this handheld on my radar is the striking looks inspired by the OG Game Boy but in a horizontal form factor and what appears to be high end build quality.  Other Upcoming Handhelds  

PiBoy XRS: A Great Handheld Gaming Option Coming In February 2022

I'm interested in the PiBoy CM4x which is expected to release in February but the strange 1:1 screen is a little odd. Experimental Pi also has the PiBoy XRS releasing but with a smaller 3.5" 640x480 screen which is more geared towards most retro gaming platforms. https://www.experimentalpi.com/PiBoy-XRS_p_59.html The price on the XRS is $149.95 + the cost of a Pi board which isn't too bad. The XRS is definitely on my radar and high on  the top 10 list upcoming handheld options. Technical specs and images below...
