Uses other than gaming
My hope is to use it for some of my more intense programming assignments in college since my laptop is a fair bit weaker than the Deck.
A broke college student who is far too obsessed with this thing.

What sort of live gigs?  DJ'ing?   I'm also thinking for this & live lighting control.
Yeah I'm actually more interested in how it can be used for productivity more than gaming, having a pc in this form factor opens up the possibilities for lots of things.  Gaming requires so much power, but a lot of the apps I use (vendor proprietary windows apps) don't need that much power but often require a dedicated server......taking all of them mobile will be a game changer.
I like the idea of having the Deck as a portable editing rig. Along with gaming, I'd like to be able to quickly make an edit on the go in DaVinci Resolve or even dock it up to a monitor to work on a project away from home.

I will install folding@home to run after gaming.
