ET deals: Alienware Alpha consolized gaming PC $430
PC gaming has really taken off in the last couple of years. With the combination of Steam and the increased controller support, it’s easy to see why. However, gaming PCs are stereotypically large and expensive. Who wants to drop a grand to play some games, right? Thankfully, the Alienware Alpha is defying those stereotypes. This tiny PC is small, easy to use, and shockingly affordable. Let’s take a look.
On the inside, this consolized PC sports a dual-core 2.9GHz Intel Core i3-4130T CPU, a discrete Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M+ GPU with 2GB of GDDR5, 4GB of DDR3L RAM (1600MHz), a 500GB hard drive, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n/ac WiFi support. It comes with a wireless Xbox 360 controller and a USB adaptor as well, so you can operate the entire box just like a console with Alienware’s custom 10-foot UI. You don’t even have to use a mouse and keyboard.
Keep in mind, this gaming PC is really small. It’s 2.7-inches tall, 7.87-inches deep, 7.87-inches wide, and it weighs about four pounds. In comparison, the Xbox One is 3.1-inches tall, 10.8-inches deep, 13.1-inches wide, and weighs in at over seven pounds.
Generally, this configuration costs about $550, but Dell is selling it for $499.99. We can do a lot better than that, though.
