    The manufacturers of the Syber Steam Machine have made the widest range of Steam Machines available for consumers. The nice thing about having many options when it comes to Steam Machines, is that there is a machine for every price-class.

    Not everyone is looking to play high-end AAA games on their Steam Machines, which is why it is nice that Syber has several cheaper Steam Machines available for purchase. Of course, they are also rocking a high-end system, which could easily compete against the other high-end Steam Machines on the market.
