It's deeper than an Xbox One. Would be great to see se comparison shots next to PS4, Xbone, and Wii U :)

Yeah, I was more excited about the box it came in than the the actual Steam Box.

Hoping the one from ibuypower looks better.

It is smaller than an Xbox One but larger than a 360 (standard model), to give you perspective. Power supply included within as well, which is pretty impressive

Looks like it. The limitations on space must be pretty liberal considering they can fit a GTX Titan with a standard two slot cooler.

Grrr. This wooden box. And the controller.

Moreover - free hardware for 300 Steam users. I love their promotional strategy. They already won. I need the Gabepad.

What do you mean free hardware for 300 users? It's for testing, this thing will probably be tested for a good 6 months at least before it's available. Furthermore there's 2 or 3 levels of hardware, some users got a beast, some got a pretty regular PC IIRC.

We also don't know if it's noisy or quiet, how reliable it is, we don't know if they'll be asked to return the consoles at the end of the beta or not either.

I think it's a great way of testing the machines but let's not lose our minds here.

I'm going to say "no"

Can I hack this box? Run another OS? Change the hardware? Install my own software? Use it to build a robot?
Sure.

The controller looks really nice and everything in a wooden box is quite cool.

Although the actual Steam Machine looks pretty disappointing to me. Forgive me for thinking this, but my thoughts were, "Congratulations, you've unboxed a VCR in a wooden crate."

Still, anyone who got to be one of the 300 users is still pretty lucky.
