Valve details the first wave of Steam Machines and their roll out to market

Valve is opening up pre-orders for the first wave of Steam Machines, some of which will be shipped to customers on October 16th, nearly a month before the system’s in-store launch on November 10th.

Both Alienware and CyberPower will be the first companies to release their versions of the Steam Machine using this program, and Polygon reports that other companies will be announcing their own plans in the coming weeks.
