*sigh* so here we go: Steam PC
Well... I... uh... the design is pretty neat, I guess?

Apart from them making it official there's not much discussion to be had that hasn't been had. There's no price tag or spec given. It's an announcement of pretty much everything already known.
Make your own xi3 to get an idea of the hardware they use. AMD only, windows is an option and SSD only. No mention of graphics processors which is odd since they mention how modular it is. It obvious from the form of that box that conventional graphics cards won't be going into it.

The big selling point with this thing for me would be getting to play all my Steam games easily and conveniently on the telly, if it's restricted to the games that work on Linux then that's going to hamper my interest somewhat. :|

Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes....

It definitely looks like a thing. I guess this is progress toward something I might eventually want.

I would've liked it to have looked a bit more clockpunk but I guess that would make the costs prohibitive. Any specs released yet?

It's quite cute. Then again, I find all things that are smaller than they usually are to be cute. Like 2.5" HDDs.Itsbastiat, Dawngate

Too small to have decent specs.

edit- whoah they want a thousand dollars? I've never spent that much at once on a PC (usually I'm just buying components, but even to build one with no monitor would probably cost half of that). Perhaps it's even more badass than my gaming rig? I doubt it.
Now I'm with Sakkura... it's too small to have decent specs for a thousand dollar machine, right?
edit again: okay I see those specs and it's basically my machine... I wonder what the GPU is like.

I'd rather just connect my PC to the TV. Can't imagine that thing having much storage space, especially if it's SSD only, and I don't want to bother having to install/uninstall everything constantly. Also, performance. Still might be a good idea for people without gaming PCs, though.
But do we know if it's a real PC or if it's a console hooked on Steam?

Noone said this is the steam pc... it's a project which got some funding by Valve.
Gameinformer is fishing for hits.
Look at the video : 20 watts and 400m transistors, they don't need to reveal the specs to know that it will be weak as shit.
It's basically this : http://www.raspberrypi.org/
But less portable and needlessly expensive.
