Alienware haven't released any specs or prices yet, but as you can see buy the picture, their machine is very pretty indeed. Compact, too, if you extrapolate scale from the USB ports.

We'll be bringing you some thoughts later today, while more details are expected throughout the week. In the meantime, what do you make of this? Is it the future of your living room - or a bit confusing? How much would you be looking to pay?

Oh dear. $6000 in a small for factor. What could go wrong?!

Though it's good news. Aside from the mention of Alienware, which is Dell... and if anyone has ever seen a Dell graphics card you know why that's not good news.

Forgive if I'm wrong, but is the CyberPC not priced too badly compared to the rest?

.... and people said the PS4/XB1 cost too much........

My interest in Steam machines has cooled somewhat.
