4 Reasons Against

Alienware Desktop Computers Only Have Unexceptional Reviews

Alienware has good reviews for its medium processor core personal computers, however it has unexceptional average reviews when measured across its entire PC range.

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on comparable spec personal computers that have been available for more than a year. 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.

Computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini (£615.00) (SSD).

2 Other reasons to consider the Alienware X51 R3

Released Over a Year Ago

It was over a year ago when Alienware released the X51 R3.

Average Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the Alienware X51 R3 has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age.

If you want a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705 (£449.00) (10GB), or the HP 810-477na (£939.99) (12GB).
