  • Living in a one-bedroom apartment right now and moving into a home with a small, shared office, I'm looking at the Aurora R5 like the apes in the first scene of 2001: A Space Odyssey. OK, but seriously, it looks like Alienware's Aurora update was well wor...

  • Compact, sharp-looking case, Solid, steel-frame construction, High-end specs and performance, True 4K and VR gaming potential, Overclocking headroom, Tool-less upgradeability, Capacity for Dual GPU configurations, Fully modular PSU, Low-key LED accent lights
  • A little noisy under heavy OC loads, All plastic external skins, Some configurations can be pricey
  • The Alienware Aurora R5 is a surprisingly difficult desktop PC to nail down with a simple description. Let's get the easy observations out of the way first. It's a fantastic performer at a reasonable price. It looks great on the outside and is intelligent...

  • Stellar gaming performance, as equipped, Very quiet under load, Futuristic-looking, relatively compact design, Tool-less access to internals
  • Adding options quickly boosts the price, All-plastic exterior, and bare-steel case inside, Limited hard drive storage expandability for a mid-tower
  • Impressively dense with PC-gaming power, the rebooted Aurora packs flair and fast frame rates in equal measure. Only some quibbles about the case materials keep it from an Editors' Choice pick. Read More…...

  • Ergonomi, customizable desig, True tool-free upgradabilit, Strong overall performanc, Runs quiet
  • Not the sleekest PC in its category
  • When stacked up against Alienware's full lineup of gaming PCs, everything about the Aurora feels just right. The company's living-room-ready X51 lacks powerful GPU options, while the highest-end Area 51 offers all of the graphics muscle you could want at...

  • Powerful, Toolless upgrading
  • Poor keyboard and mouse set, Loud
  • It has a few minor issues, but for its price you'll get getting a rock-solid gaming PC. Definitely worth considering if you're looking to get something upgradable.(previously published in issue February 2017)...

  • Abstract:  Dell has taken more than four years to introduce a new version of its Alienware Aurora gaming desktop. But the cleverly designed Aurora R5 is worth waiting for.For starters, its chassis is surprisingly compact. It is much shorter than a standard mid-tower...
