Alienware X51 R2 Review
The Alienware X51-R2 is the new entry to the Alienware line of gaming PCs, and it is an improvement to last year’s groundbreaking Alienware X51 with the same price category. It boasts the same amazing visual effect and employs the same space-saving small-form-factor (SFF) design. Upgrades include a faster Haswell processor in favor of last year’s Sandy Bridge chip, as well as an upgraded Nvidia graphics chip. At a list price of $699 (as tested), Alienware X51 R2 is an excellent value for budget-conscious gamers, but it lacks expansion possibilities and doesn’t include a keyboard or mouse.
To gain access to the X51-R2’s tiny inside, unscrew one bolt and slide the cover plate outward, taking care not to rip out the light connection in the process. There are no vacant extra card connectors, nor are there any empty drive ports. There is enough clearance to replace the single-slot graphics card with a dual-slot GPU, but somehow the 180-watt power cable may limit your options.
