Alienware Area-51 X58

CNET
20 June 2009
  • Summary: Even if we have a few reservations about this system, we can't deny that Alienware has an outstanding deal on its hands, with the Area 51 X58. It offers the same core hardware and twice the storage capacity as PCs that cost $1,500 more. High-end bargain hunters, assuming they exist, will find an amazing deal in this PC.
  • Pros: Cost-effective for a $6,500 PC; more storage than we've ever seen.
  • Cons: Clunky Alienware case; overclocking and other features reserved for a still higher-end Alienware system; no HDMI output.

  • Conclusion: If you’ve ever dreamed of throwing practicality into the wind, cranking every game to maximum settings, and enjoying them as they were meant to be played – with maximum detail in every little leaf, perfectly smoothed edges, and water that looks closer to real life than you ever dreamed possible – this is the system to do it with.
  • Pros: Unstoppable, no compromises computing power; unique, stylish case; reliable and easy to set up
  • Cons: Price rivals a used car; pumps out heat; some cheap-feeling case parts; chintzy mouse and keyboard

Gaming-Bolide der Oberklasse: Alienware Area-51 X58

CNET
10 February 2009
  • Summary: Trotz aller Vorbehalte lässt sich nicht leugnen, dass Alienware hier etwas ganz Besonderes gelungen ist. Normalerweise kostet ein Gerät mit identischer Hardware und nur halb so viel Speicher mindestens 1000 Euro mehr. Alle Gamer, die auch in der gehobenen Preiskategorie noch auf Schnäppchensuche gehen, machen mit diesem PC sicherlich ein Bombengeschäft.
  • Pros: reichlich Leistung und Ausstattung fürs Geld, mehr Speicherplatz als bei anderen PCs dieser Preisklasse
  • Cons: klobiges Alienware-Gehäuse, kein Übertakten wie bei den noch höherklassigen Alienware-Systemen möglich, kein HDMI-Ausgang
