Steam Coming to Chromebooks

Android Police report that Valve is officially bringing Steam to Chromebooks, though it is not yet revealed when this will happen (thanks TechRadar). Word is this will come through the Linux support in Chrome OS, so this is something you can do already, but at this point it is not officially supported. They also note that most Chromebook hardware will only be up to the task of playing a limited number of games:
The next question, of course, is just what sorts of games would even be worth playing on a Chromebook when run directly on local hardware. Currently, most Chromebooks have extremely limited 3D acceleration performance, with only the most recent devices like Samsung's Galaxy Chromebook possessing vaguely passable GPUs. Liu said we could expect that to change: more powerful Chromebooks, especially AMD Chromebooks, are coming. Liu would not explicitly confirm that any of these models would contain discrete Radeon graphics, but told us to stay tuned.
