The Background of Alienware Steam Machines
Founded in 1996 by tech experts Alex Aguila and Nelson Gonzalez, Alienware is a sub-company of US computer giant Dell – and the gaming machines themselves are all recognisable by their signature ‘alien’ branding. The name derived from the founders’ love of the Nineties classic TV series, The X-Files.
Released to compete with the likes of other popular platforms such as Microsoft’s Xbox, Sony’s PlayStation and Nintendo’s Wii consoles, the Alienware gaming system went cross-platform on desktop PC’s, laptops and hybrid video consoles more in keeping with their competitors.
The laptop range came in various sizes, including 11.6 inch, 13 inch, 14, inch, 15 inch, 17 inch and 18 inch models – all using Windows OS and Alienware’s proprietary graphics amplifier to create an engaging and immersive gaming experience.
Desktop hardware came in the form of various Aurora models from R1 to R6 variations, plus an Aurora ALX model and standalone Area-51 and X51 versions.
Hybrid video gaming consoles from Alienware included Alpha and Alpha R2 models with varying specification and power.
The various models mentioned above also differ in that some were created prior to Dell’s acquisition of Alienware in 1996 – with other models coming after this.
Current Alienware Models
It’s fair to say that Dell has really taken Alienware and its Steam Machines to another level. Current models include 13, 15 and 17-inch laptops with a futuristic alien branded design – which all feature strong graphics capability – with GeForce 1000 series Graphics cards and GDDR5 RAM options. Anti-glare screens and H-series quad core CPU’s are all standard features – which help gamers to enjoy a cutting edge playing experience on all Alienware models.
