If you wake up and find this thing staring back at you, you're either a hardcore PC gamer, or you've been transported to some kind of hellish, H.R. Giger-inspired universe. The Area-51 was one of Alienware’s first systems, and made a name for itself with hardcore gaming performance and a controversial (if also campy) design. With glowing ribs and an alien logo that could change colours and strobe speed, it told the entire world that its owner is an inveterate nerd. Its successor, the Alienware Aurora, boasts similar sci-fi qualities but lacks the polarising design aesthetic of the Area-51.
