Alienware's upcoming Steam Machine may be many things - stylish, made in collaboration with Valve, upgradeable, due this September - but one thing it won't be is a source of major income for parent company Dell. Division general manager Frank Azor told The Wall Street Journal that the Alienware Steam Machine will "absolutely be the least profitable system" the company will ever sell.

Unfortunately, we still don't know the pricing scheme of Alienware's entry to the already-crowded Steam Machine market. We don't even know what's going to be inside of the thing, other than an Intel processor and an Nvidia graphics card. It is, for now, a low-profit mystery.
