The lights are on
Xi3's Piston gaming PC, designed specifically for use with your living room television, is available for pre-order right now.
The device will be $999.99 with larger prices if you need more hard drive space, but if you pre-order before the end of the day Sunday, March 9 (tomorrow), you will get $100 off.
This is the first unofficial Steam Box device, developed with Steam's Big Picture mode in mind. Valve is still working on its own hardware, which is still mostly mysterious, but this will be a comparable device.
You can head here if you want to put down your pre-order.

If people wanted to buy this specifically because it's designed with Steam in mind, I think they would probably wait and see what hardware Valve is working on.
That is awesome. If I had the money I would so get it.
$999.99 LOL NO WAY XD
So... $1,000 dollars for this... Or I could build My own for the same price and most-likely crush this thing performance-wise. Tough choice there.
Sounds cool wonder how much it cos- FFFFFFUUUUU
Does anyone know any cheap good gaming pc
I'd wait for an official Valve released one. This seems too sketchy.
Shoot, that's almost 3 Wii Us!
I have a pretty good set up and it cost me about 1200. Built from scratch. I also have an oversized monitor and wireless peripherals. I was able to run Crysis 3 at max settings on it. I don't think this device will sell well, personally. The Console crowd will not be swayed because of the price, and the PC crowd will not be swayed because you can get so much more for that price.
I think this is a good way to get some console gamers to try PC gaming. But i think i'll just spend tha 1k on my own build
Hmmm... *looks at wallet*
