CNET First Look
Alienware's Area 51 desktop ready to playThis giant gaming desktop holds three graphics cards and five hard drives within its unique pyramid shape.
[MUSIC] I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a look at the Alienware Area 51, this really unique looking new desktop you see. It's, it's not a big rectangle or like a refrigerator box. It's almost. A triangle-like shape. It's got these three flat surfaces on it and sturdy handles so you can actually take the whole thing and tilt it like this. And even just leave it on one of the other surfaces, makes it easy to get to all your ports and connections. You could leave it like this or just plug some stuff and then pull it back like this. And of course, getting inside it's sometimes a challenge with beginning desktops. Just open the entire side panel, like this, and you can access all, all your interior components. Put a, video cards in there. Obviously this thing is gonna run the latest, like the GTX 980 card, the new Haswell E, super high and processor from Intel. And then you just slide the thing back on, clip it on, and there you go. The Area 51 is gonna start at 1699, obviously go way, way up from there and available to order starting October 28. I hope shipping soon thereafter I'm Dan Ackerman and that's the Alienware Area 51. [MUSIC] [MUSIC]
