The first Stream Machine made by Alienware called Alpha will be available sometime in November. The interesting thing is that this will have a Windows 8.1 platform for the OS. The Alpha looks very similar to other game consoles and will come with a bundled xbox 360 wireless gamepad. The Alienware people have created their own interface so you don’t see the windows 8 metro interface, though you have the option to boot to that desktop if you want. This device will sell for $550, has a dual core i3, 4gb of ram and a 500gb hard drive. This is a very expensive game console used to play PC ports of game consoles.
