Intel and Nvidia...

No wonder Valve has been working closely with NV and NV has been working hard on OGL and linux in general...

quite disappointing with these specs, not only are they kinda expensive, no mention of any AMD/intel 6-12 thread/core cpus are listed.
I would prefer steam let developers target low-mid spec machines so devs wouldn't be sloppy. Like using laptop spec parts as a base, using an AMD a10-5750m or intel ulv i7

This isn't for everybody. They address your concerns.

And to be clear, this design is not meant to serve the needs of all of the tens of millions of Steam users. It may, however, be the kind of machine that a significant percentage of Steam users would actually want to purchase - those who want plenty of performance in a high-end living room package. Many others would opt for machines that have been more carefully designed to cost less, or to be tiny, or super quiet, and there will be Steam Machines that fit those descriptions.

Those specs seems absolutely ridiculous...

I have nothing against them, but it seems a little too unrealistic for my tastes. Then again, I don't really like the Steam Box idea at all. They are just trying to make affordable PC's for a console market. That's fine and all, it just doesn't apply to me. We'll see how it compares to well established competition in sales are popularity. I feel like Valve might be pushing it with this one.
