  • The stock model unit may not suit the needs of serious gamers, External power brick is rather large in size, Compact size limits upgrade and expansion options
  • The Alienware X51 is a prime example of why not all serious gamers require a full-sized configuration. The only reason you might want to build your own barebones unit or spend more money on the high capacity systems is for more expansion and upgrade space...

  • Manufacturing quality, Overall performance, Compact size
  • Noisy fan during intensive use, Overheating, Entrylevel keyboard and mouse not suited for gaming
  • The Alienware X51 is a small, powerful gaming PC. It tends to get rather loud and toasty and the keyboard and mouse could have been better suited for gaming purposes, but it's still a great way to play your favourite titles without taking up too much spac...

  • Very powerful and fast, smallish size, not too pricey,
  • Gameboy styling isn't for everyone
  • For a good all-round PC with some serious gaming grunt the Alienware X51 takes some beating. The small form factor means it won't dominate the living room if you're hooking it up to your TV (though it also means it's cramped inside and awkward to modif...

  • Extremely powerful, Small size means it's easy to fit in your living room, Relatively affordable
  • Lowpower PSU limits upgrade options, Styling won't appeal to everyone
  • The Alienware X51 achieves the magic combination of being small yet extremely powerful. If you want a gaming PC that doesn't dominate an entire room but can still chew through the latest titles, the X51 is an excellent choice....

  • Superb value, Small footprint, Phenomally powerful
  • Tricky to upgrade, Still pricier than a console,
  • For £899 at the top of the range, the Alienware X51 is packed to the gunnels with power and a gaming PC of this size and power for this price is astounding. Unfortunately, that still doesn’t hide the fact that the Xbox 360 and PS3 are now cheaper than

  • The Alienware X51 is great option for those in need of a gaming PC without the fuss and higher cost of some more advanced set-ups. The fact it’s the size of a console is just an added bonus. The Alienware X51 is worth checking out. Alienware X51 is ta...
