In January 2012, Dell's Alienware division launched a new desktop PC, the X51, with a case design that looked much like a game console. Today, Dell announced the first major hardware update for the Alienware X51 since its launch, adding in support for Intel's new fourth generation Core (Haswell) processors.
The Alienware website goes over the new hardware options for the X51, which include an option to put in an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 GPU, along with the choice of putting in a dual SSD/hard drive storage configuration and mSATA support. The Alienware X51 still has the option to have Windows 7, Windows 8 or even the Linux based Ubuntu OS.
As we reported on in May, Alienware is holding an event in Los Angeles one week from today, June 10th, as part of their E3 2013 plans. It's more than possible that Alienware has more to reveal next week than just a refresh of the X51 but at the moment there's no word on exactly what the company will be showing off at the event. We will be covering the Alienware press conference next week and give you all the details on what they have up their sleeve.
