While some have predicted 2012 to be the end of the desktop, Dell’s Alienware is disagreeing with the introduction of the AlienWare X51 desktop.
Designed to look like a gaming console rather than a gaming desktop, the X51 comes packed with an option of a Core i3, i5 or i7 processor, a 1GB GDDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GT 545 graphics card (or an optional upgrade to a GTX 555), up to 8GB of DDR3 memory (4GB standard), and a fast 7200rpm 1TB hard drive.
“The Alienware X51 allows us to bring the exciting nature of high-definition, immersive gaming within reach of more gamers than ever before. With the X51, we’ve expanded our gaming desktop offering to cater to all gamers in addition to our core enthusiast and competitive gamers. Now everyone can enjoy the latest games on a sleek, powerful, compact and customizable system. The X51 desktop delivers an incredible feature set for its size and price.” — Varinderjit Singh, managing director, Consumer and Commercial Business, Dell Malaysia and Singapore.
