Compared to the current fleet of consoles, iBUYPOWER has certainly taken the route of simplicity (which isn't really a bad thing). I like the look of it, but I'd actually opt for a black box I think, and wouldn't object the logo up top being colored white, like the real Steam logo.
Unlike the current consoles though, there will be a ton of variations of these, so it shouldn't be too hard to get one that suits your style best.
Hmmm...looks kind of cool. Many people have been anticipating this system for a long time. The one issue that I see is the price. For the same price as one of these systems, I would upgrade my video card and get hard drive bigger than 500GB to run my Steam games on. I could also run many other games and apps that are not Steam with those upgrades. Unless they are ready to cut the computer based gaming cable, they will probably only see marginal interest in their game system. I would rather invest in a new computer setup with an awesome video card that can play Steam games than invest in something I can live without. Now if they offered the Steam OS for computer systems, I could see them making a profit if they choose to not cut the cord.
