      In short it's a PC made for gaming only but very close to a console only it's more upgradable. I've seen several youtube videos of them messing with the hardware on it and it's not too bad. Just a bit like an HTPC to me really.

      I already have a steambox, an Asus G75VW gaming laptop. :p

      I feel the steambox is good for people who don't have a high-end gaming PC but if you're capable of getting one then the steambox is a total waste of money. Just my two cents. :)

      The whole point is it's just for gaming only, where your high end gaming PC tends to do everything and also tends to be a heck of a lot larger where Steam Boxes are small.

      I heard like Valve is distributing initial version of steambox to selected peoples for testing purpose.. I have seen some photos.. But didnt see it directly..

      It will take some time for the Linux based SteamOS to become mature.. also lots of game titles need to be ported to Linux to work well with SteamBox..

      Last I seen on them they abandoned Linux and now will be using a Windows variant for Steam boxes.
