Steam for Mac has officially launched. The Steam store is now featuring Mac content with over 60 launch titles. Customers can browse the Mac store from their web browsers: click to browse. The actual Steam client will need to be downloaded to purchase and install games.

As part of their launch promotion, Valve is offering their highly acclaimed game Portal for free until May 24th.




Even if you don't consider yourself much of a gamer, we highly recommend giving Portal a try.

I'm not a gamer, but I am going to give Portal a try. Downloading now.

I am trying to download but everytime i hit the free link (within steam) i just receive a blank page? How did you get yours working?

Free Portal is awesome! Now I'll find out what all of my friends are talking about.

I'll find out how well my Mac Mini with 9400m plays games... (I really want a minitower Apple, or at least a desktop computer that isn't $2500 with a halfway-decent graphics card :()

Bravo!

I've always wanted to try Portal and was planning on buying it. This is a very welcome surprise! Torchlight is also 50% off!

Click over to Library. It is to the right of Store. Their servers are crawling now. It's telling me to try again later.

EDIT: Just keep trying. Mine began downloading on my second attempt.

The servers are getting hammered I'm sure, I went to the Store and searched for Portal and went from there to get the d/l started instead of clicking the bid red button which was giving me troubles.

I've got mine to downloading but its going incredibly slow (ranging from 10kb/s to 200kb/s) and its not my internet that's the problem, so their servers must be overloaded
