If you've got $1,000 to spend this holiday season and didn't want to pick up the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, then you might want to consider Xi3's super-small modular gaming PC, PISTON.



The Xi3 PISTON features a 128GB SSD by default, 12 USB ports, patented modular motherboard design, an AMD Trinity quad-core processor clocked at 3.2GHz, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, and an AMD Radeon HD 7000-Series GPU. A second HDD can be installed, and thanks to Xi3 providing support for Windows, Linux and Unix, this means you can install SteamOS onto the PISTON, making it a quasi-Steam Box.




On top of the 12 USB ports, we have three display outputs: miniDisplayPort, HDMI and DisplayPort which supports up to 4K resolutions. If you pre-order the PISTON now, you will receive it before, or on November 15 compared to the street date of November 29.
