TrustedReview have reported that Alienware’s Steam Machines will not be upgradeable. Make no mistake though, you will still be able to customize your Steam Machine before purchasing it, but you won’t be able to swap out the graphics card or other internal components if you ever need to in the future.
Exactly how this restriction will be implemented, and if it’ll carry over to Steam Machines from other manufacturers, is yet to be determined. Alienware have also stated that they intend to update their line-up of Steam Machines every year.
Alienware’s Steam Machine will launch sometime in September.
