Cannot install Steam :(
i just got my new imac (21.5" i5) and downloaded steam, dragged the file into the applications folder and it starts the first update (downloading ~34mb), it reaches 24 and then fails with a 'steam needs to be online to update' message, clicking ok closes the app and i get nowhere!
i have tried this three times each failed, i had steam installed on my old iMac (27" i7)with no worries.
any one know whats up?
i've emailed steam support but their only suggestion is to reinstall steam (but i can't install it in the first place. )

Quickly try creating a new admin account and installing it there.

I had the exact same problem for about 2 weeks and I know how irritating it is. (I just got a new internet connection 2 days ago and no problems anymore)
Maybe you will find a more cheap solution in this link:http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=1269939
It did help for me, but the problem might come back.
Macrumors newbie, happy to be here! (And sorry if any of my English is incorrect)
