This personal computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency
The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of personal computers of this age and spec is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz. The Alienware X51 has one of the faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (1,200 megahertz) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Alienware X51 is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port PC. Most of the other personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X51 have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Very Big Hard Drive Capacity
PCs of this age and spec have hard drive capacity of between 1GB and 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 930GB. The hard drive capacity of the Alienware X51 of 2,000 gigabytes is one of the biggest amongst computers that were released one year ago.
Quite Fast Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago is 3.1GHz. The Alienware X51 has a fairly fast processor clock speed (3.6 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the X51.
If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to look at the Alienware X51 (£1,099.00) (4GHz and cheaper).
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
The Alienware X51 has a quite big total storage capacity (2,000 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that have been on the market for more than a year. The smallest total storage capacity of computers of this spec and age is 4GB and the biggest is 3.6TB.
+10 More reasons for
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on desktop computers of a similar age and spec to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The Alienware X51 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies (4 gigahertz) amongst computers of this age. The maximum turbo frequencies of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year range from 1.8GHz to 4.4GHz.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many PCs of this age and spec.
Six USB 3.0 Ports
The Alienware X51 is a six USB 3.0 port PC.
7.1 Audio Output Channel
This personal computer has a 7.1 audio output channel, which is the most commonly found audio output channel on comparable spec computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This PC supports a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most commonly supported discrete graphics memory type on computers that have been on the market for more than a year.
The Alienware X51 is fairly light (only 5.5 kilograms) compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable type and age to the X51. The average weight of similar spec PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the X51 is 7.5kg.
The widths of personal computers of a similar type and age to the X51 range from 33mm to 510mm, and the average width is 180mm. At only 95 millimeters, the Alienware X51 is quite narrow compared to most of the other computers of a comparable type and age to the X51.
4 Reasons Against
Alienware PCs Only Have Unexceptional Reviews
We assessed average ratings for each PC manufacturer and found that whilst Alienware has unexceptional average ratings across all computers, Alienware has good ratings specifically within its medium processor core personal computers range.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
We compared all the other HDD desktop computers to this personal computer and we think cheaper PCs such as the HP Z230 (£669.57), the DELL Precision T5810 (£898.80), and the Lenovo H50 (£891.49) is also worth considering.
The number of memory slots found on the Alienware X51 is more than most personal computers of a similar spec and age to it. The most commonly found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this desktop computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.
Only Two USB 2.0 Ports
The Alienware X51 is a two USB 2.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other computers of this age and type have between one and nine USB 2.0 ports.

2 Other reasons to consider the Alienware X51
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when Alienware released the X51.
Average Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the Alienware X51 has a relatively average internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type.
Other 8GB memory desktop computers currently available which you might want to look at include the HP Z230 (£669.57) which is cheaper.
If you would prefer a PC with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the HP 810-477na (£939.99) (12GB), the DELL Precision T5810 (£898.80) (16GB), or the Alienware X51 (£1,099.00) (16GB) which is also cheaper.
