I'm personally considering dual booting my laptop with steamOS.

When In-Home steaming is added I would like to give it a go.

looking at the prices listed there that's an xbox 1 and a ps4, tbh I don't see the point of this and if they are doing it they should have a proper design for it not lots of different 1's. but maybe that's just me

Tweaktown has all the price ranges and partial spec list here:
http://www.tweaktown.com/news/34681/...ecs/index.html

The cheapest that's there is currently $499 (USD), so the same price as the xBone. It's also nice to see some systems sporting Radeons and AMD CPUs/APUs too since the initial prototype was Intel/Nvidia.

If you dont like prebuilts, itx board+ silverstone rvz01 is meant for you..
The steambox is for the people that want PC gaming at console prices, without difficulty of DIY

Wouldn't get me excited.

But, if they sold a steam-branded combination of case, motherboard and maybe even PSU, I'd be game.

Thats not true surely, a dual Titan in a small form factor, lol that will cost a fortune. Just like anything pre-built, I saw a similiar rig to mine in an advert recently, probably cost me around the thousand mark, this was two grand!

It's just going to be another, you pay for the 'privilege' of it already being pre-built right?

Edit: Yup just read details on the Scan steambox in partnership with NVIDIA, it has Intel Core i3 4000M CPU, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M GPU, 8GB of Corsair Vengeance memory and 500GB of storage and costs £699, and is fully upgradeable. So yeah sod that.

but I think it's for console gamers to move to PC but don't have any idea where to start? But I'd say you need to be a console gamer with deep pockets OR are stupid and would do better to learn than buy one. I don't fancy paying hundreds for integrated graphics.

In the case of your edit my point pretty much applies as ive seen xboxs here for almost 600, but for the dual titan, steam box is just a easy for them to sell overly expensive rigs to people with deep pockets

Editj looks like I confused euros and pounds. 800+ euro for that POS... But on the other hand, the ibuypowder and cyberpowderpc varients are "console killers" I guess
