AlienWare X51 System Review (Core i7)

Review Score:
6 Flares 6 Flares ×

Are you tired of the same, boring looking desktop system?

Alienware hope you are, because their X51 is designed from the ground up to turn heads. The system is built inside a diminutive, superslim chassis which can be used either vertically or horizontally.

Think Xbox 360.

The big question we need to answer today however, is it actually any good?

Unlike some of the more expensive Alienware systems, the The X51 won’t break the bank. The basic configuration starts at £649 including VAT and shipping. The model we are reviewing today has received a couple of upgrades, featuring a Core i7 2600 @ £899 inc vat and delivery.

X51 review system:

Processor: Intel Core i7 2600

    Thats really very sexy looking. I like it. Wonder if you can fit a better GPU in it. would the PSU handle it?

    Nice photos. I was going to say I wonder why they hadn’t moved to the new 3rd generation processors, but I notice they just did. good move :)

    Its a nice idea, but the power brick is massive. kinda ruins the point of having such a small case. no?
