5 Cutest Steam Machines (With Specs)

1 of 5

Valve showed off several versions of their Steam Machine tonight -- including some sexy ones like the Alienware Steam Machine. But there are several that are, frankly, adorable. These are the Top Five Cutest Steam Machines. 

1. Maingear Spark

Maingear's Steam Machine is quickly gaining credit as the cutest of the pack. At 4.5 x 4.23 x 2.34, this little beauty is slightly larger than a sandwich and honestly what I was expecting from the Steam Box.

But it's what's under the hood that counts, and Maingear has some technical specs to balance out the cute factor: 

  • Hard Drive: 1 x mSATA slot support SSD up to 256GB, 1 x 2.5'' HDD trap support SATA III 6Gb
  • USB Ports: 4x USB 3.0
  • Processor: AMD A8-5575M, 4 threads, 2.1-3.1 GHz
  • Video Card: AMD Radeon R9 M275X
  • Memory: 2 x SO-DIMM DDR3L, 1600/1333 MHz, Max 16GB
  • Dimensions: (w)4.5'' x (H)2.34'' x (D)4.23''
  • Weight: .89 LBs
  • Price: TBA

So not as powerful as some of it's competitors, but if you're looking for an OUYA level console (small and easy to take to a friends house, etc) with your Steam library on it, it's definitely a front runner.

    I have heard people request that it be referred to as a Gabe Cube.
