    Most of these are laughable. The big idea behind the steam machine was to bring pc gaming to the living room like the consoles. Why would I want a tower next to the tv? It’s pointless. And then there are the ones that are using other pc vendor cases, they may be microatx/itx cases, but I’d much rather build my own pc and put steamos on it, or windows and install steam and set it to run on startup and default to big picture mode.

    The only ones that are possibly worth it are the:

    Gigabyte – brix pro

    All because of the original specially made cases, and are assuming them to be relatively the same size as other consoles. The rest of them are just PCs that run steam.

    P.S. An SSHD has a portion of the drive as solid state (usually not anywhere close to half. Most commonly about 8gb), which generally acts kind of like a cache. The drive itself determines what it writes to the ssd portion (if the drive is self optimized) or the OS, device drivers, and/or software (if host optimized). You never install or put or see anything on the ssd portion.

      Dude mini atx isn’t that bad it’s a great platform
      Google mini atx builds and see the price u can build ur own it’s not like mini atx is exclusive to oems
      U can build a 400 dollar build which will be smaller than a ps3 and 3-4 times more powerful than a prebuilt system
      The steam machines are amazing and though a few of them are pricey and large even the cheaper smaller ones will suffice and play a lot of games on high settings
      Valve is even promoting building ur own system and will not reduce features etc

      Btw you’re right about the ssd caching bit my main laptop has a 64gb ssd caching drive with a 1tb and it is way faster than a 7200rpm 1tb and nearly as fast as a high end ssd

    Up to $6,000 for a stream machine?!… for $4,000 I can build a sexy tower that looks better, functions better with multiply OS’, NVidia Titan SLI while rolling with a Quad-core i7, 16GB RAM, liquid cooling system, and seeing how Steam OS was said to be openly available (really also a glorified and OS version of Steam Big Picture), I wouldn’t go anywhere near $6,000…

    I’m so excited the idea of the steam machine is, dare I say it, picking up steam.

  8. gunblade

    Polarized digicam lenses comprise by using a split down called polarization as the identify show.

  10. There are many long term effects of UV exposure, but there are also short term ones which can be just as troublesome.
