Saw this on kotaku...I know this probably doesn't really effect any (or many?) of us as Alienware computers are notoriously overpriced, and it is way more fun to build your own.I would consider this "bigger" news if Alienware computers were not aimed at gamers who are more than likely going to install Steam anyway. Bummer for that one guy who does not want it. Interesting none the less, I wonder if Valve is aiming to do this with other manufacturers.

I don't see the point of this unless they're giving away HL2 or something for free.

You get Portal for free, be nice if they gave you a multiplayer game

I don't see a problem with this, Steam is a pretty good service and it would give anyone who buys there first Alienware PC the ability to purchase games online.

This isn't news. Most computers are crammed full of software that no one uses... at least Steam is a good service.

Yeah at least it's something useful. I can't imagine an AlienWare purchaser that wouldn't have installed Steam themselves, though.
