Alienware Alpha ROCKS

 

On the next models to come, give the owner access to change the graphics chip.

Great machine! Runs anything I throw at it!! I purchased two, one for me and one for my son. This is the start of real gaming power

None. Dell/ Alienware did a great job with this one

Impressive Desktop Replacement

 

One of the first things to do is replace the slow 5400 rpm drive. The i3 system comes with a Seagate ST500LT012 Laptop Thin 500GB hard drive. It's ok for storage, not so much for performance. I swapped it out for a WD Black 750GB (WD7500BPKX) 7200 rpm...

Small size, silent, attractive design, upgradeable, kid friendly. My 12 year old LOVEs this PC. With Win 8.1 installed, it plays all his Steam games and productivity software (MS Office) for school online with Blackboard for school assignments. Added a...

Slow stock hard drive, no second sata drive bay, graphics upgrade unavailable

what a console should be

 

Originally i was going to do a custom build small itx form factor pc for mostly streaming games and videos to my living room, but after pricing all the pieces out and finding out it would of been closer to 750-800 without tax or shipping to build a pc...

fast cpu ; gtx 860m ; upgradable hard drive, cpu and gpu and memory ; 5ghz wifi..... ps4 only capable of 2.4ghz ; xbox 360 controller that just works no driver hunting required, also has a cd included for the drivers if you would like to use it on...

SLOOOOW hard drive, the hard drive is so slow it can cause some stuttering, i understand that dell had to make a cut someplace, but at least they didnt go cheap on the cpu or gpu

very useful machine

 

Let me say i never support alienware and i always thought of them as overpriced snake oil. But lately i had been using an old laptop streaming games from desktop to living room and it wasnt the best. So i went looking for a small form factor itx build....

Very small makes ps4 look huge ; Very good xbox controller that actually works with rumble in some games... to my suprise ; Built in 5ghz wifi .... coff coff ps4 only has 2.4ghz slowness ; Very ez to set up ; Windows 8.1 ; Very low power consumption ;...

Hdd 500gb slow fest really holds it back and for me caused some stutter... change this thing first

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Decent for older games.

 

I really wanted this to be a good device, I really did. But for only $550, I'm not sure why I expected so high. The Alpha can handle running games without a problem. But as soon as you try to move around in a game, the machine becomes useless. Games...

Small ; Easy set-up ; Pretty quiet, doesn't get too warm ; Can run non-open-world games at decent speeds and frames, usually

Only three USB ports ; Glitchy AlienFX (lighting) ; Windows Explorer generally lags when doing simple things such as using the windows search engine or opening folders ; Lags terribly in open-world games such as MMO's. It can generally run the games...

Great value for the price

 

The Alienware UI is buggy and tedious - uninstall it, and use the Alpha as a regular PC in desktop mode, preferably after installing the additional RAM. Buy the base model, the matching RAM stick (Samsung M471B5173DB0-YK0), and a 500GB SSD. Those are...

Can be used as a regular PC. You will not get better gaming performance for the money, even if you build your own system. I got mine for $407 after tax and free shipping. Check the forums for coupon codes and sales

The base model should have 8GB RAM, but that is an easy fix. Same with SSD. I bought the matching 4GB RAM stick (Samsung M471B5173DB0-YK0) for $25, and $180 for the Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD, and this system rocks! Only other con is the GPU cannot be...

A warning about customer service

 

The Customer Experience: I bought this for my sons 10th birthday, I paid extra for over night shipping to try and get it in time and had even called and spoke to a dell rep and asked if they thought we could get it in time and i was told "easily",...

The system boots up quickly despite the 5400 RPM 2.5" HDD ; It has 4 GB in a single stick of ram so its upgradeable ; The system is whisper quiet (does this count if the fan isn't spinning?) ; takes only 4 philips screws to open (best part) ; GPU...

System lasted 2 days ; Farcry 4 played on medium settings and no anti-alaising at 46-58 FPS ; Dragon Age : Inqusiotion wouldn't run at all (driver issue) ; The GPU uses CUSTOM DRIVERS, IE: you cant update them until LONG after the stock ones come out ;...

alpha rocks

 

GREAT value.. one cannot build a gaming PC with Win8.1 OS of this caliber at this size nor price. Steam game sales will cost you far less in the long run than paying full price for console variants. I swapped out the 5400 HDD for an SSD. It now takes 6...

Runs cool / great heat dissipation. It is extremely quiet, my stomach makes more noise. Runs most games on high graphic settings / high detail textures / shadows and resolution. 1080p. Compact size that is easy to bring to a friends house. Takes up...

There are a few bugs with the alpha UI. e.g. cannot go back from the settings menu, must restart the UI ; Alpha UI does not detect native resolution of my monitor ; Zooming in and out of webpages via the steam UI is a bit tricky with 360 controller ;...
