Chart Edit

Very Narrow

Across all the latest comparable spec PCs the widths range from 34mm to 7,100mm, and the average width is 250mm. The Alienware X51 R3 is one of the narrower latest medium processor core personal computers (only 95 millimeters) amongst comparable spec computers of this age.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Alienware Desktop Computers Only Have Unexceptional Reviews

Average reviews across all Alienware PCs are unexceptional, however average reviews across just Alienware's medium processor core personal computers are good.

Only Has One Memory Slot

The Alienware X51 R3 has a greater number of memory slots than most comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this PC. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.

3 Other reasons to consider the Alienware X51 R3

Released Over a Year Ago

Alienware released the X51 R3 over a year ago.

Average Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the Alienware X51 R3 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core personal computers.

If you are looking for a desktop computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the 240 SFF[pl_3290411_price] (16GB and cheaper), or the DWS BUNDEL Z240 SFF 4Core 3.5GHz CPU, NVIDIA K1200, 16GB geheugen, 256GB SSD (J9C03ET+T7T59AT)[pl_3338320_price] (16GB and cheaper) both from HP.

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as 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.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative HDD personal computers currently available including the DELL 7040[plb_3074347_price], the Asus G11CD[plb_3153378_price], or the Lenovo P310[plb_3191100_price] which is cheaper.

Desktop computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth looking at include the P310[pl_3192586_price] (SSD), or the P310[pl_3192629_price] (SSD) both from Lenovo which is also cheaper.
