Alienware X51 Ubuntu Linux Compact Gaming PC Unveiled

Alienware, gaming and Ubuntu; sounds like a good combination. Dell thought so and is introducing the Alienware X51 running Ubuntu flavored Linux. Basic models start at $599 and component upgrades can run the cost up to a little over $1k.

Steam for Linux is a major step forward for gaming on the open-source OS, and now Dell is providing consumers with a desktop with the hardware to play those games and with Ubuntu pre-installed.
