Alienware Aurora ALX (Core i7)

 

The Alienware Aurora ALX (Core i7)'s new Aurora ALX has a brand new core i7-CPU and two high-end graphics cards encased in one of the coolest chassis I've seen in a long time.

Case Design. Very quiet. Core i7 CPU.

Expensive. No multimedia card reader. No expandability.

Alienware Aurora ALX - Athlon 64 FX 60 2.6 GHz review: Alienware Aurora ALX - Athlon 64 FX 60 2.6 GHz

 

Typically well-built Alienware gaming PC; most powerful desktop 3D graphics technology currently available.

Quad SLI doesn't offer enough bang for the buck.

Alienware's Quad SLI PC features four distinct 3D graphics processors, placing it among the most advanced consumer PCs around. But we're not convinced that this expensive Nvidia technology delivers enough 3D muscle for the money. Furthermore, we'd...

Alienware Aurora ALX SLI

 

Two graphics cards and unparalleled support highlight the pricey but powerful Alienware Aurora ALX SLI.

Nvidia SLI technology provides powerful 3D graphics platform; liquid-cooled for quiet operation; dual 10,000rpm drives; superior service and support.

Expensive; custom painting not an option.

If you can stomach the price, Alienware's Aurora ALX SLI serves up big 3D gaming performance backed by some of the best customer service you'll find.

Alienware Aurora ALX

 

When you by an Alienware gaming system you're making a statement. The Alienware Aurora ALX (Core i7) ($4,249 direct) gaming desktop is like buying a Porsche: You can certainly find other cars that go just as fast for a lower price, but they wouldn't...

Case Design. Very quiet. Core i7 CPU

Expensive. No multimedia card reader. No expandability

The latest iteration of Alienware's ALX line, the Alienware Aurora ALX (Core i7), is as flashy as its predecessor and just as powerful, but it will cost you an arm and a leg.

Alienware Aurora ALX

 

One of the PC's weaknesses is the tendency to be generic. That's certainly not a weakness of Alienware's new Aurora ALX. Using a new redesigned chassis, there's no way your Aurora ALX will be confused with a bland black box.

Truly unique chassis with multicolor perimeter lighting

Needs backup drive for storage; outperformed by overclocked machines

That puts the ALX in a good place for folks who want a unique machine—without any of the hassles that can crop up with overclocking.

Review: Alienware Aurora ALX

 

Short version: The Aurora ALX is quite possibly the fastest computer I've ever used. It is in a word, amazing. The water cooling, thermally reactive venting system, and lighting combine to make a system that runs great, looks amazing, and has some...

Alienware Aurora ALX Review

 

Alienware's new Aurora ALX is one of the four new offerings in Dell's rebranded gaming desktop line.

Stylish case, adv. lighting ; Water cooling ; Premium keyboard and mouse

Very loud ; Expensive ; Heavy

The Alienware Aurora ALX is an impressive piece of machinery. It represents a new face for Alienware and Dell by turning away from the style that's been their signature look for the past several years in favor of a new, harder, more...

Alienware Aurora ALX

 

Once again, Alienware has created a visually stunning, smartly designed PC, without sacrificing the performance needed for gaming (or just about anything else).

Visually stunning; great gaming performance

Heavy; expensive; no free expansion slots on motherboard

Make no mistake here: You are paying a premium for the cachet of the Alienware name and the unique design features that define the Aurora ALX. But you can’t get a Bentley for the price of a Buick. Cyberpower’s Gamer Xtreme XI is much easier on the...

Alienware Aurora ALX Desktop

 

Alienware was formed in 1996 and in the first 10-years of their existence the company created a name for themselves in the enthusiast market. It did not matter if a consumer was looking for a high performance desktop, notebook or HTPC system because...

From testing the M15x and M17x laptops we knew that the acquisition of Alienware by Dell had provided both companies with the ability to release some very impressive products. Those two laptops were Performance award winners and the M15x which was one...

Well folks, its that time once again. The release of ATI's Radeon HD 5870 graphics card has caused quite a stir in the hardware industry. While enthusiasts scramble to find the coin to upgrade their systems, Alienware is providing an all inclusive...

In our limited time with Alienware's latest Aurora ALX, it provided the highest scores we've seen out of any of the systems recently reviewed at HotHardware. We expected it to do well due to its cutting edge hardware and configuration, but the extent...
