A GPD Win 2 with 8 GB RAM and 1280x720p display still costs €740 + shipping + import taxes:
A Smach Z with 8 GB RAM will cost €899 + shipping + import taxes... if it ever launches:
And please don't fall in the trap buying the cheaper 4 GB Smach Z for €699, if you want to play f.e. The Witcher 3, Doom or Wolfenstein 2 in better settings than on a cheap Switch or Switch Lite. 4 GB doesn't cut it for PC games anymore!
By the way, the Smach Z prototype "The Phawx" tested last year on YouTube had 32 GB RAM, so we don't even know, if even 8 GB RAM will be enough: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QclbkG1WnQ&list=PLdC3pP79J-A-XUcDBq_Xv9G26WIQeRooK
The UFO concept with its 8'' FullHD display and an Intel 10th generation Core processor looks more advanced (and more expensive) than the GPD Win 2 and the Smach Z, also Alienware branded hardware ain't cheap... so I expect at least a price of $/€999:
Also probably a Switch Pro will be released before the UFO, reducing the hardware performance gap.
And for €700 - €800 price difference to the Switch / Switch lite I can buy a lot of Switch games. The non-exclusives on Switch also aren't that expensive and fall faster in price than Nintendo's first-party-games: https://www.base.com/buy/product/wolfenstein-youngblood-deluxe-edition-code-in-box-nintendo-switch/dgc-wolfyglns.htm?1=1&awc=2694_1579356311_ad357e8087f2276c7a7765ab782873f3
And if you wait for good offers several times per year, you also get Switch games for a decent price (pay 2 get 3; 3 Switch games for € xx, 5 Switch games for € xx...)
Last April I bought Diablo 3, Xenoblade 2, Let's Go, Ebola!, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Lego City Undercover for a total of €100... so only €20 per game.
