I've been patiently waiting for the Steam machines to come out so I can put one under the TV to replace my ageing Acer Revo R3610 (I love it, but it struggles with some 720p steams)
I'd use it mostly for (in order):
- Streaming live sports that aren't shown in my country
- Using Netflix, provided the interface is better than my PS3/360
- Playing games, or streaming them from my main desktop upstairs
At the moment I'm happy with a PS3 and 360 downstairs as my gaming machine, but if it works nicely then PC could become my platform of choice, especially since there are so many awesome mods out there, and games in general are far cheaper.
Any thoughts on what kind of machine I should go for please? Or should I attempt to build one myself?
