Just got this in my email:
Thanks for your coverage on Steam Hardware.
Just wanted to share an update and address a couple of questions we received about the pre order and devices.
1) The "get it early" pre order offer is available to everyone who pre orders, but only while supplies last. As of this writing, we have sold over 35% of the limited quantity available for early delivery in Oct.
2) All Steam Machines offer full support for Steam's In Home Streaming, in addition to offering support for native Steam OS games. This means they can transmit and receive In Home Streams, and allow them to play all the games on Steam when paired with Steam PC.
3) Preview/Review Units: We do plan to make units available later this summer. We will be following up with more details on this.
What are your thoughts? Could Steam Machines actually make some commotion on the console market?
