Valve’s Prototype and the Privileged Few
Before the wide range of Steam Machines hits the market, Valve is offering a prototype to a few lucky people. Most likely, the chance of trying out such a prototype comes with a confidentiality clause, because otherwise gamers would be running around, screaming as hard as they can the technical specs. The high-performance prototype is in Valve's opinion the best device for gaming, the living room and Steam. The company decided to leave it open, thus allowing people to hack it, or upgrade it, if you will.
