Alienware's latest X51 gaming PC amps up with liquid cooling, latest Intel chip

 

Besides the popular micro-desktop, Alienware's gaming laptop lineup is also being updated with new processors and some 4K screens.

Review: Alienware Andromeda X51

 

Alienware's offer: Give us $1,000, and we'll give you an excellent gaming desktop in a pint-sized design that's easy to lug around.

Plenty of ports and power for most gaming needs. Super portable: 15 percent the size of a regular Alienware tower. Modular internal design makes replacing or upgrading parts easy. Sturdy build. Reasonably quiet

Necessarily limited expansion options: 330-watt power supply and physical issues mean replacing the video card is tricky. Still more expensive than a DIY system. Power brick is the size of a man’s shoe

Alienware X51 review

 

Do you identify yourself as a PC gamer? Or do you prefer consoles, perhaps? Truth be told, there's not a lot separating the two these days. With notable exceptions, today's top games are built for...

Good value for the money ; Small form factor makes for a place-anywhere gaming PC ; Clever case allows for easy upgrades

Cheaper configurations have limited upgrade potential ; No wireless controller or remote ; No solid state drive option

A stone's throw shy of the perfect living room PC

Alienware x51 desktop review: Alienware x51 desktop

 

Alienware x51 desktop

The affordable ; brings innovation to slim-tower PCs by offering a full-size graphics card.

Despite the big 3D card, the X51's slim-tower chassis still has a limited upgrade path.

Alienware has successfully brought its brand to an affordable, suitably stylized package, and I can recommend the X51 to anyone in the market for a mainstream gaming PC.

Alienware X51

 

The front of the system has the usual backlit alien head Alienware logo, flanked by the lit color panels. Next to the slot-loading DVD drive on the front are two USB 2.0 ports and two audio jacks for a headset. On the back, you'll find a Kensington...

Nice performance from a compact system. Easy-to-service interior. USB 3.0 ports. HDMI video output. Up to three monitor support. Integrated Wi-Fi

External power supply. No internal expansion room whatsoever. Some fan noise

The Alienware X51 gaming desktop goes after the console gamer that wants a bit more out of their gaming experience.

Alienware X51 Review

 

Powerful console-size PC with Nvidia Optimus technology

Needs bay for SSD; lacks SATA 6Gb/s support and front USB 3.0 ports

DON’T BLINK, it’s not a game console. It’s something far better—a PC that’s as small as the original Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with the promise of pretty good gaming performance, too.

Alien Autopsy: We Look Inside the Alienware X51

 

Besides chocolate and coconut, oil and water, gaming and small form factor usually don't mix. That's something Alienware is hoping to fix with its new incredibly small X51 box.

Dell Alienware X51 Review

 

The Alienware X51 sports a nice and compact chassis with good internal hardware. However, it isn't as stylish and over-the-top as previous Alienware desktops. Cutting down on Alienware�s characteristic excesses, the X51 aims to provide gamers a slim...

Sleek design, form factor, Good hardware, Decent overall performance

Expensive, Graphics could've been better, Older processor
