    The only people who would care to pay $1000 for a PC to play games already have one.

    Yeah, this is destined to fail from minute one. I mean really? You aren't even getting an operating system with that $1000. A Steam Box should cost $600 at most.

    I want to see the inside. I am disappointed that it does not look like the Companion Cube.

    Just don't see who are going to buy this.
    Console gamer's won't pay $1000 for it and PC gamer's would rather spend that sort of money building their own machine.
    One thing in is favor thou it would launch with hundreds and hundreds of game's available for it which no console has ever had before.

    Here is my "Steam Box", $1000 is about £670.

    I doubt the specs are even that good to be honest, a resounding 'pass' from me.

    I am assuming the parts inside will be locked down so they can't be overclocked etc, hence the non K i5.

    Quick cash grab before the new consoles come out maybe? And those will be cheaper and more powerful by the looks of it

    But not only can you play your steam games on it, but you can also use it as a pocket sized portable elevation device to stand on and reach high places.

    That $1000 is not looking so much now is it. lol

    The concept of the Steam Box was a fail from the get go.

    PC gamers prefer mouse & keyboard and if they want portability they're better off getting a laptop.

    Console gamers aren't missing out, they get better exclusives and have the same games PC does...

    I doubt any Console gamer would pay $1,000 just to play Steam games..If they want something better than their console they'd get a gaming PC...

    There's really is no market for this at all...O'l Gabe has lost it...

    Haha, this was destined to fail. And that price will seal its fate from day-1.
