Inside this PC is a powerful 6th generation Skylake i5 6400T, a GTX 960 (which we think is a GTX 960m judging by the VRAM) and a total of 4 HDMI 2.0 outputs, making this PC 4x4K ready, if you were more than a little bit mad.

With these kind of specs we can see that this PC is not just suitable for gaming, but also could be suitable is a multi-monitor office PC with just the addition of a more “office appropriate OS” like Windows 7-10 or Linux.

This PC will have a wide range of options for the user, from WIFI and bluetooth compatibility and offers with it a new Steam Controller, which I personally have found to be a great controller from my time playing games like Metal Gear Solid V and Batman Arkham Knight. 


Conquer the Achilles heel of action games on PC with the bundled revolutionary Steam Controller and experience a heightened level of precision control. Dual Trackpads, HD haptic feedback, dual-stage triggers, back grip buttons, and full control scheme customization. Share your control mappings or find your favorite online in the Steam Community.


Personally I am really looking forward to seeing proper Steam machines hit the market, delivering console like PCs to the masses and giving people just one more reason to try Linux. 

Currently Steam lists this units price at $999.99, but this is a place-holder price that is likely to change over the coming weeks.
