The makers of first generation Steam Machines are:

I'm starting to feel so old...

Back in the day I would build my own stuff, don't get me wrong, I still do. But this steam box thing I would just buy.

I already build my living room media box, my girlfriends PC, my own PC, my parents PC, PCs at my work, my Kid's PC and help friends with their PCs... but this fucking steam box I'd buy! I'm SELLING OUT MY NERDYNESS!

Edit. First world problem. I'd buy this for HL 3 only.
