I'm thinking of getting rid of my ps2/gamecube and using it as an emulator/media pc. Its the perfect size too.
Alienware steam machines are shit
Pro tip you can't upgrade the hardware in them at all since it uses mobile tech
A syber would be better since you can toss a better gpu/cpu in there for better emulation in the future for other platforms. In fact he Syber Steam machine allows you to upgrade CPU, GPU and mainboard and psu. The entire thing can be slowly upgraded as you see fit.
No shit but these guys never listen to me no matter how much I warn them so the next best thing is at least direct them to a cheap steam machine they can upgrade in the future. If they take baby steps and upgrade a steam machine they will eventually move on to building one themselves.
>I like the fact that the alienware machine can fit in my backpack.I already have a tower for demanding games.
Oh never mind then. If you have a tower why not get a mini atx or some shit?
