Steam has been a service exclusively for PC users since we launched it in 2004. For the first time we and our partners are bringing it to another platform. It's been a ton of work, but the Mac is great for the same reason the PC is great - they are both open systems that let gamers and game developers be as close as possible.

So check it out. If you have a Mac and are new to Steam, welcome! If you've been with us since the beginning, borrow a Mac and log into your Steam account and jump into a game. And for everybody, Portal is free from today until the 24th.
Find us on Facebook to discover the faces behind the names!

one of my friends at school used to play TF2 on a macbook pro a lot, must have used some 3rd party app

one major gripe: how hard it is to get to the download link, the only way i know to get to that page is to type the whole link out which gets annoying fast

Free games are always good! I already played a friend's copy of Portal, but I will now replay it with developer commentary.

The Steam download is in the "About" tab. It is a pain in the ass to find it if you don't already know where to look.
