Dell Alienware X51 (2013) Review


The PC gaming console has long been a dream of both hardware manufacturers and gamers. Consoles offer a living-room gameplay experience, while computers provide incredible performance, a wider selection of games, and upgradability. Meshing the two...

Small, compact chassis ; Plenty of connectivity ; Components are surprisingly easy to replace ; Affordable

Limited upgradability ; Bundled peripherals seem a waste ; Loud when gaming

Beautifully engineered, the Alienware X51 is a quick, small, and surprisingly affordable gaming PC. No competitor can match its killer combo of pint-sized chassis and powerful performance.

Dell Vostro 470


Business systems are often defined not just by how quickly they complete their assigned tasks, but how quickly the systems themselves get to market. For that reason, the Dell Vostro 470 deserves some significant plaudits: This is one of the first...

Up-to-date hardware. Strong performance across applications. Fairly expandable

Default warranty covers only one year

The Dell Vostro 470 delivers fine performance and a robust-enough feature set to be your go-to sub-$1,000 business PC of choice.

Dell Vostro 470


It may look like a basic-black tower desktop, but not all basic-black PCs are created equal. For small businesses buying PCs they'll need to rely upon every day, sometimes the services and policies behind the hardware matter just as much as the box...

Competitive application performance ; Basic black design will not offend ; Toolless chassis

Standard warranty lasts only one year ; Bundled keyboard and mouse are subpar

A simple and functional design, strong performance, and useful support options make the Dell Vostro 470 a good fit for small businesses.

Dell Alienware X51


The Dell Alienware X51 delivers serious performance, including enough for gaming, without costing you an arm and a leg. It has an attractive design, USB 3.0, Blu-ray, built-in Wi-Fi and an easy-to-access interior. While nearly an overall home run, it...

Dell Alienware X51 review


The X51 is a compact gaming PC from Dell's premium Alienware brand. It's about the same size as an Xbox Elite, and has a selection of clever features.

A neat design, but the X51 could do with a more powerful graphics card

Good computer, good price


Fortunately, I didn't read the negative review or I might not have bought the computer. My wife needed a replacement for her 8 year old Dell XP computer. The Dell 660 looked like a lot of computer for the money. Windows 8 has a learning curve; it's...

Worst computer experience possible


We are so relieved to have taken this computer back to the store. After spending 5 hours on the phone to Dell, Microsoft, and our Internet/e-mail server, we learned that Windows 8 does not support our pop3 e-mail server. The Dell rep in India spent two...
