Alienware X51 gaming PC running on Ubuntu, retails for only $600

 
Linux has started picking up a lot of lost ground since Epic and Valve threw their support behind the popular operating system. Now Alienware is hoping to capitalize on that trend, offering a relatively cheap gaming alternative.
 
Alienware introduced the ‘Alienware X51’ today, a new PC which runs with Ubuntu. Interested customers can pick up an X51 with either a Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 processor. These options can be upgraded to 8GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. You can also choose between a NVIDIA GeForce GT545 or a GTX 555 card (Linux-friendly drivers from NVIDI included).
 
The models start at $599 with standard hardware and options. The X51 has 8 USB ports (6x 2.0 and 2x 2.0) and supports digital 7.1 surround sound, HDMI 1.4 port, WiFi and 1GB ethernet port.
 
You can check the full-line of specs, pictures and information included with the launch on the official website below.
