Alienware X51-R2

 

The Alienware X51-R2 small-form-factor gaming desktop offers respectable gaming performance at a reasonable price.

Reasonably priced. Small footprint. Solid performance.

No room for expansion. Does not include keyboard or mouse.

The Alienware X51-R2 is a neat little gaming system that won't break the bank. Its Nvidia GPU and Haswell CPU provide solid entry-level gaming performance, and you get the usual Alienware bling, including cool lighting effects and a glowing alien head,...

Alienware x51 R2 Review with AMD Radeon R9 270b

 

Here in the late Summer of 2014 we're having a look at a gaming PC from Alienware that's continuing to aim for console-beating power after nearly a year out in the wild. This review isn't like most SlashGear reviews where we review a product early -...

The Alienware x51 R2 certainly looks the part, but fails to be generous enough in the price VS functionality department to recommend over a gaming console. If you’re looking for AMD power, you can certainly stack it in neatly here, but you’re just as...

Alienware X51 R2 review

 

The Alienware X51 R2 makes a decent living room gaming PC although it is a bit pricey

Consumer review (walmart.com)

Closer to a laptop

 

I have some Dell laptops too. This feels like one of the high end laptops. Somehow it just does not perform as crisply as big iron. It struggles on some games. It gets loaded down when doing Windows updates, which my other Dells do not. Normally in...

One Problem after another.

 

WalMart made a mistake selling this computer. Then I made a bigger mistake buying one. I was thinking alienware was still making these. I didn't know that Dell was making them,and they had Dell parts in them. You will spend more time trying to get it...

Excellent Gaming Machine

 

I bought the Alienware X51 R2 on May 29th, and received it earlier then expected delivery. The performance is excellent, and the price wasn't too expensive. The form factor is fantastic, but requires an external power supply, which isn't that much of...

Fantastic, but..

 

I absolutely love this computer! I splurged a little and got the Extreme Edition, which I would recommend. This thing is powerful for its small size. Just a little bit bigger than a gaming console. Runs every single one of my games on Ultra 1080p...

Great performance, few criticisms

 

I purchased the Alienware-R2 a couple months ago. Immediately my expectations were exceeded; booting up my games revealed I could cap them out on the highest settings with V-sync capping my FPS at 75, able to significantly above. Specs @ 1440x900p...

Endless problems

 

A good PC when working.. Unfortunately, this is pretty much never. When this computer works it's not a bad gaming computer. However that is pretty much never. I have had issued with the disk usage being stuck at 100%, the processor usage being stuck at...
