1. DigitalStorm Bolt II

The Bolt II will be a configurable Steam Machine. We've listed two sample configurations provided by DigitalStorm above. It'll be out this month, which means no Steam Controller or SteamOS upon initial shipping. A Steam Controller can be ordered seperately when they are eventually released.

2. Webhallen SM Prototype

Webhallen are launching 3 different configurations. A cost effective machine that competes with consoles, and two high-end machines. We've listed the specifications of their prototype above.

3. Falcon Northwest

The Falcon Northwest is highly customizable. The values we list are the "up to" values. Configurations start at $1,799 up to $6,000.

4. Alienware

Gabe reportedly said "The result of our collaboration is the Alienware Steam Machine, a console that encapsulates the full potential of what a Steam Machine should be". Alienware will also be making their existing X51 series available as Steam Machines. IGN has a video preview of the Alienware Steam Machine up here.

5. OriginPC Chronos

The Chronos will have 2 editions, a Standard edition and an SLI edition. Both are configurable. We've listed "up to" specs. More.
