Valve officially showed off the 13 official Steam Machines during its brief CES press event this evening, but it was in the aftermath where we got a closer look at the devices. Below, Reviews Editor Lee Hutchinson snapped photos of all the Steam Machine variants in their glorious array of shapes and sizes.

They start at $499, and come in all shapes and sizes.

While not all games that you purchased runs on Linux (out of my 400 games in my Steam collection, only 100 of them run on Linux), you're still entitled to them. At the beginning of Steam for Linux Beta only handful of my games run, so it's a reasonable assumption that the compatibility will rise.

Secondly, you're still free to install Windows, and the same UI (Steam) will run on top of it as it is on SteamOS, and you get all your games.

So, all in all, I think it's a fair deal. Some titles probably won't run out of the box, but compared to the situation when buying a new console (like PS4) and having no previously purchased games run at all (even PSN games(!)) I think it's a solid improvement.
