Mobile for-gaming rigs may have sweet specs under their respective hoods, but the continued existence of enhanced gaming desktops still have a say when talking the mobile VS desktop gaming system debate.
So far, portable gaming rigs have won points over desktop systems when LAN parties are put on the table, since portable gaming laptops simplify the mobility concerns involved in LAN parties and in joining them.
Alienware, a brand which doesn’t require lengthy introductions, has however launched a modest desktop solution, one which runs to even the score between portable gaming systems and desktops in relation to LAN parties: Alienware’s Andromeda X51.
The Andromeda X51 Desktop System
At 12 pounds, the Andromeda X51 comes with a base convention price of $700, with expandable options in accommodating a gamer’s particulars, requirements and needs from a gaming computer system.
Sized close to the dimensions of an average gaming console, the Andromeda X51 is small enough to be carried under one arm, a form feature which facilitates easy mobility.
Though far from sporting the mobile benefits boasted by gaming-inclined laptops, the rig’s price is a standout feature in itself, and getting the $1,000 convention arms gamers with an Intel Core i5 (3Ghz) processor, 8 gigs of RAM, 1 TB of hard drive space, a dual output NVIDIA GTX 555 GPU, and a slot-loading DVD drive, along with two front mounted USB 2.0 ports, with four more USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports at the back.
With an Ethernet port, HDMI, SPIDF TOSLINK and coaxial ports at the back, the Andromeda X51’s $1000 convention commands a powerful workable system for gamers, conveniently sized to be small enough to fit in limited or cramped spaces.
With most intense gaming sessions cramped in using gaming laptops, lugging desktops around is also not an easy feat.
Alienware, with the Andromeda X51, offers a modest, combined solution for gamers, amalgamating the upsides of portable gaming laptops and desktops in one.
