Alienware X51 Desktop Review

This slim design and unique flavor this might be a great starter desktop in my book.  I really do not like compact prefabs like this but this would be great for people that do not want to build.  Like the Playstation and XBox systems I consider this rig to be like buying a console.   It is all put together and has been updated to the now times.  the only problem with this is.   I see you having no choice on what goes into the machine.  You will have to upgrade your machine future wise through them.  There is no control on what you put in the machine.  I prefer for the serious PC builders to never buy a prefab always build a rig that has open expansion for later upgrades and scale ability.

I think that the new design is nice but there is a reason as to why they normally bulky.  Alienware says that it is easily upgradable which is one of my biggest concerns in the whole matter.  I mean they actually said that about off the shelf components can be implemented.  They start off around six hundred bucks and up.
