To me, the most interesting thing is the CPU/GPU. Could that be used on a potential steam box to have good gaming performance and cheap cost?

There's no version of Steam that runs on ARM procs, and there are no Steam games that run on ARM procs, either. I'm pretty sure any Steam box would stick with some form of Intel CPU coupled with an NVidia/AMD GPU.
Those are barriers, but they aren't insurmountable. Valve could make a version that runs on arm. Devs could submit things that run on win, mac, linux, AND tegra/mobile, that would be fairly decent attraction to get more customers to steam. Or they could contract with nvidia to do a special integrated tegra chip on a card (hugely expensive I know, to get custom stuff like that, but valve could afford it if they really wanted to. I think it would be a waste though).
