Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great machine, terrible sales serviceq Never received my order and had the order canceled as out of stock even though units with the exact same specs were listed as in stock on the website. A really frustrating and disappointing experience, especially since the unit was to be a Christmas present for my kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alienware Steam Machine Although the initial Steam OS library only has over 1500 games, some Die Hard Gamer's such as myself Prefer the Windows Steam Library, The fantastic aspect of owning this machine is the Ability to either Dual boot or Single Boot Windows. Once you Boot Windows you will be able to play your steam library games on this wonderful gaming desktop like it was meant to be played. I am incredibly satisfied with my purchase and would like highly Recommend this product to everyone who is a Gamer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It needs updating, but it's good It's a wifi hog, which can hinder performance if you have bad internet speeds. However, it is great when it works. Valve is trying hard to make it appealing to developers (they released a new OpenGL to make it easier to port Windows games to SteamOS), but it needs a lot of updating to be a true must-have and contender. If you are primarily a Linux gamer and don't mind waiting for ports, get it. If you are a Windows gamer, you might want to wait until more updates roll in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it!! I bought this for my son because he liked playing steam games on PC but our PC was not up to par for game playing. This was a complete waste. Games kept crashing and not even 7 days old and it malfunctioned! tech support stated I had to send in for repair! Are you kidding me! 7 days and stops working! Luckily I got a very nice person and I was able to return it and get my money back and invested in a PS4 ! Do not waste your money on this steam machine!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will only play games that are Steam OS! Bought this hoping to play all of the games I acquired through Steam on the TV. Surprise! It will not play any of the games that I bought from Steam that are in my Steam library. It will only play Steam OS games and nothing else. I do not recall seeing that information in any of the specs or reviews I looked at before making the purchase. Basically my entire library of existing Steam games are useless. Will NOT play PC games.
