A Steam Box won't have the power or flexibility to appeal to PC gamers

Wrong. More than a few in this thread have expressed interest already. You do not speak for everyone and please stop thinking you can. Personally Im very interested in this as I have an aging desktop and the ONLY reason for me to upgrade is for games. I currently have my desk setup next to my tv so I can game from the couch or my desk without hassle on my PC. Something like the "Steambox" would be a good fit in my entertainment setup. However, I'm waiting to hear more info, rather than random speculation.


BTW, have you looked at the alienware x51?

Looking at that, I wouldn't be surprised if steam just rebranded it and put a custom UI into it (I think this model was mentioned in the thread, I just never looked at that model).
Its overpriced as all alienware setups are, but alienware tends to look cool at least.

Im not interested in overpriced hardware, so I ignore everything Alienware. Similarly Razor's lame "gaming laptop". If Valve's entry is overpriced or some lame restrictions, then I wont be interested. I haven't spent the cash on a new rig mainly because I haven't needed one aside from a few games. Maybe later this year, we'll see.
