Digital Storm Unveils Hybrid PC-Steam Machine
Computer manufacturer Digital Storm today (Jan. 6) unveiled the Bolt II gaming PC. It features both the Windows operating system and the Linux-based SteamOS. The SteamOS from Valve has been optimized for computer gaming, including an interface intended to be used on televisions in living rooms.
The Bolt II features Digital Storm's advanced heating measures, including a liquid-cooling system, a case designed to stimulate airflow, temperature sensors throughout the machine, a 240mm radiator to cool the processor and the HydroLux control board that allows users to monitor and adjust every aspect of the cooling system.

The Bolt II is also designed as a small-form factor system, with the case measuring 4.4 inches wide by 16.4 inches tall and 14.1 inches deep.
The Bolt II will be available in four different configurations, starting at $1,899. It will be released later this month, via the Digital Storm website.
