Dell is now shipping its Alienware Alpha all-in-one console PC gaming unit, promoted as a Steam machine to consumers in time for Christmas. The entry-level Alpha machine has an Intel Core i3-4130T dual-core CPU, 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M, 4GB DDR3 RAM and 500GB HDD, with all models created so they can be easily upgraded.




The Alienware Alpha is available now and starts at $549, with $699, $799, and $899 models also available. The units ship with Alpha UI, but can boot directly to Microsoft Windows 8.1 and Steam Big Picture.


"We've been working hard this past year to break the mold and develop a system that finally brings hundreds of Steam games, including some really fun indie titles, to TVs," said Frank Azor, Alienware GM. "The team and I are excited to finally deliver our vision for big screen gaming and give our fans a console that delivers true next-gen performance with the flexibility to choose how, what and where they want to play."
