The Alienware Area-51 gaming computer lives up to the brand's name by well and truly looking like it has been designed by an alien. It also lives up the Alienware reputation by being a powerful and reliable gaming computer.

The Alienware Area-51 has what is called a Triad chassis, essentially a 22-inch tall triangular-hexagonal body. This makes it easy to access ports and buttons on the computer, unlike regular desktop towers that have most of the ports inconveniently hidden at the back. The Area-51's sloping interface offers easy access to ports and jacks. The entire chassis can even be pulled forward to pivot on its front edge.

The sloping triangular shape also makes it impossible for the rear of the computer to be pushed up against a wall, allowing for a controlled thermal exhaust.
