What about purchasing these is overly complicated?

1. Mom walks into store to buy her child a game system with zero prior knowledge.
2. Mom sees XBox, PS4, and 8 different SteamOS boxes on the shelf.
3. XBox and PS4 get ignored while Mom is trying to figure out which SteamBOX would be the best bang for her buck.

First a location will have to actually sell it, do you see Target and Walmart selling steam machines? I don't. But if they did, what if they limited it to one choice? Now at Best Buy does SM's get located at the console area or PC area? Then it depends on how many they stock and how they market it. We really don't know this yet. So it is hard to say how complicated or not this is. But I've noticed tablets have done quite well with even more choice. The thing here is if there is a market for this.
