We raved about Alienware's new case when we first saw it earlier this year, and we still like it here on the Area-51 5500, even if its innovative lighting system is only half-baked. What we like even more is the power this gaming PC serves up for the price.

The latest in Gateway's line of versatile slim towers, the SX2850-33 stays current with a fast Intel Core i3 CPU, and more importantly adds Wi-Fi to improve its suitability as a living-room desktop.

The Gateway SX2801-01e is just one of several new budget slim tower systems available this season. We're impressed by its compact design and the HDMI port makes it easy to use in the living room.
