Dell Alienware X51 (2013) Review

Digitaltrends
6 June 2013
  • Conclusion: The X51 is a beautifully engineered computer that can’t entirely overcome the fundamental challenges all small gaming PCs face. Yes, it’s easy to disassemble; but upgrading is a chore. Yes, it packs incredible hardware in a small profile; but it’s still loud. Yes, it can be used with Steam’s Big Picture Mode; but most PC games still lack controller support. All of these problems are notable, but the system has a savior: price.
  • Pros: Small, compact chassis, Plenty of connectivity, Components are surprisingly easy to replace, Affordable
  • Cons: Limited upgradability, Bundled peripherals seem a waste, Loud when gaming

16 October 2012
  • Summary: 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 and smart gaming alternative.
  • Pros: Sleek design, form factor, Good hardware, Decent overall performance
  • Cons: Expensive, Graphics could've been better, Older processor

Alienware X51 Review

Digitaltrends
19 April 2012
  • Conclusion: When rumors of a “Steam Box” hardware spec from Valve kicked up earlier this year, it was suggested that the X51 was designed with that spec in mind. Whether or not those rumors were accurate, it’s easy to see why this new Alienware offering would be connected to them. There is serious gaming power in this relatively tiny box, and the whole thing taken together represents one of the best values out there for high-performance PC gaming.
  • Pros: Beautifully compact design, Lots of power for the price, USB 3.0 ports and built-in Wi-Fi beat you to the punch on upgrades, Easy access interior, part-swapping
  • Cons: Minimally flexible for future upgrades, More complex than a standalone console, Hefty power brick will need to be hidden away under some furniture

Dell Alienware X51, SFF PC Gaming Refined

HotHardware
1 February 2012
  • Conclusion: When some consider the size of a small form factor system, they tend to set their expectations in performance directly proportional to that size, for the most part.  To say we were impressed with the numbers this little machine put out would be an understatement.  We'll stop just short of "blown-away" but we're a bit jaded around these parts anyway.

Stor gaming-pc i lille indpakning

datatid.dk
20 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Denne mini-pc imponerer også. Man har formået at skabe et design, som signalerer gaming, og som samtidig ser ret flot og råt ud. Men begrebet mini skal mest ses i lyset af andre Alienware-computeres størrelse. For X51 er to til tre gange større end de fleste andre testdeltagere. Faktisk er strømforsyningen næsten lige så stor som de mindste computere i denne test!
