Dell retires the Alienware X51 gaming computer

Dell’s first Alienware gaming computers arrived to market in year 2012 and were instantly accepted by the community because they offered excellent gaming performance in a console-sized form factor. Unfortunately one of these PCs will no longer be.

Dell has decided to retire the Alienware X51 gaming computer, which has been around for quite some time. This model was one of Dell’s best selling Alienware products because it packed serious performance in a small-sized PC case that could fit nearly anywhere. Apparently now neither the form of the computer nor the hardware components inside are suitable for the latest games and while we can understand that we wonder why Dell did not upgrade this computer and release it again as Alienware X51 version 2.0 or something like it.

Fortunately Dell has the Aurora and the Alpha to offer. The Aurora is a mid-tower desktop that comes with hardware that allows users to enjoy virtual reality and even 4K gaming. The computer comes with a number of Intel processor and the latest NVIDIA Pascal GPUs and sells for USD 799.99 and more. The Alienware Alpha is, on the other hand, an ultra-small form-factor computer that packs Intel processors and a GeForce GTX 960 video card, which is still suitable for the new games on the market. The Alpha starts at USD 599.99.
