Valve Looking For Mac Beta Testers

Valve Software is looking for Mac beta testers for its upcoming Mac version of Steam. The online store, once released, will also feature Mac versions of Valve's game offerings including Half Life 2, Portal, and Left 4 Dead.
The survey asks a number of prying questions about your gaming habits, including how many Intel-based Macs you own and of what model, how many people use your Mac, and how many Mac games you’ve bought over the last year. As if that weren’t enough, Valve is also interested in your consumption of PC and console games, as well as your use of Mac software for running Windows, like Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion, Crossover Games, and Apple’s own Boot Camp.Follow the links below for more information.

Finally, you’ll also have to upload a condensed version of your Mac’s System Profiler info, following specific instructions provided by Valve. Presumably, this helps Valve not only determine if your machine is a viable candidate, but also gives them the opportunity to find a wide variety of Macs and configurations for testing their software.
You’ll need a free Steam account before you throw your hat in the ring. There’s no timeframe for when Valve will contact beta testers, but since Steam is expected to arrive in April, one would presume the day is not far off.
