Do you prefer playing video games from the comfort of your living room couch, but want the pure power that PC gaming offers without having a massive tower residing by your TV stand? Previously, you would be shit out of luck, and would have to stick to consoles. But now, like a UFO swooping in to abduct humans for anal probing, Alienware has surprised us with a new X51 console-like PC with a slim form factor, perfect for resting on a TV stand.
Slim form factor (roughly 13"x13"x3") doesn't mean slim on specs, either. The base model packs in a 3.3 GHz Intel Core i3-2120, Nvidia Geforce GT545 graphics card, 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 1TB harddrive. Not too shabby. Even less shabby is the more expensive model, which packs in an additional 4GB of RAM for 8GB total, an i7-2600 processor, and an Nvidia GT555. Of course, you can mix and match components to produce a mid-ranger, or just customize to your needs.
The base model starts at $699.99 and the pricey ones go up to $1149.99.
But… but… what about the future? You know, new graphics cards and such? These beasts are fully upgradeable.
These are a little pricey for me, but seriously, do want.
