Worth upgrading Ally to Ally X?

Hello there


I have an Ally which was sent to repair to fix SD card issues. I don't know if that fix will last.


I already invested by buying some spare joystick cores (5x) spare back and a spare battery for this Ally in case I scratch it or it breaks.


I also have the mod in it to install 4TB NVMe which works fine.


I have RTX 3080 XG Mobile as well.


I'm wondering if it's worth upgrading to Ally X.


The main reason is the bigger battery and Thunderbolt 4 port. It would enable me to have portable NVMe (4TB) that I have to expand the storage when needed to 8TB.


I noticed the price for the new Ally is £899 and for my current one I can probably get £500 with the extras.


Extra RAM would help too.


Is it worth upgrading?
