Alienware Launches X51 Slim Desktop PC With Serious Gaming Performance

Alienware, a custom computer manufacture that was acquired by Dell back in 2006, announced their new entry level desktop PC’s, the X51. What separates this line from their other line of desktop PC’s isn’t just the price, but also the size.

The X51 series is considered slim and from looking at the above image, they’re quite small for packing so much power. Weighing just around 12 pounds and almost 4 inches wide, it’s a pretty small package for a desktop computer.
