Alienware's mini gaming PC console ( a former Steam Box contender) specs against the next-gen console specs of the PS4 & Xbox One.
"these two have the same amount of RAM " ? yeah PS4 and xbone have the same RAM specs right ? [email protected]#ss That women was so clueless had not a single idea what she was talking about :D
She just said they both have the same amount of ram she never went into details about the different types used between Xbox One and PS4 or even Xb1. So no she's not clueless. As to this overpriced thing it will not in any way compete with PS4 at all. First it's not dedicated hardware so it want be coded to the metal and optimized like consoles are. On top of that the price starts at $500. Thanks anyways but I'll stick with consoles.
1. It's a lot smaller than I thought it would be. 2. $500 cost too much, and most people will get a console instead, but for a PC it's not bad. i3 + 4GB + GTX 860m, so it's pretty much an XBO performance wise without the benefit of dedicated developers coding for it. It's not bad, but it's not good either. If you need a PC and want to buy a gaming platform, then this could be a possible buy over a console, but I don't see it gaining any kind of ground, because most consumers aren't familiar with Alienware in the gaming space, and you can get a console and a cheap laptop / tablet for $100 more, and cover all your needs (especially at the student level). I still recommend if you're trying to buy a gaming PC to buy it off Craigstlist. At the $500 price range you can get quite a bit more power in a standard PC.
Yea, this video is the biggest waste of time ever, literally covered nothing useful at all.
Totally a waste of time. Off topic: Was I the only one who had the image of the xb1 devouring both the ps4 and Alienware consoles and still have room for a wii u stuck in my head the whole 3.5 minutes??? Damn its a beast!
Well SHE probably doesn't, she's most likely just reading a script.
I am curious is the Alienware just a PC or is it more like a console that can do PC things? I ask as I'm not to thrilled with current gen so far but every time I try and go PC I just end up having way more problems so I continue to settle for consoles. A little more insight on this product would be nice.
It's just a custom PC in a console form factor. That's all.
Spec comparisons are largely useless for consoles vs PC. Shadow of Mordor is a prime example of this.
but hardware is what matter. you cant optimize ps4 to perform better than whats its capable of. you fanboys said it yourself that xbox one cant outperform ps4 due to hardware. same logic
Hardware matters but good luck trying to get Shadow of Mordor working on a PC with the equivalent of PS3 or 360 specs. It just won't work.
Learn the what the word optimize means first.
'optimization' in the PC world means "just go buy a new video card"
The form factor is really attractive. Alienware still hasn't annoucned a release date.
It's hideous, really bad from a design point of view. Its supposed to be a living room consumer device blending seamlessly into the surroundings but looking cool and sleek at the same time. This is a shouty "look at me" device designed like one of those awful neon "bling" PCs. Very childish styling if you ask me.
I think the design is awesome. It kind of has a similar form factor than the dreamcast.
X1>ps4>pc. Pc does not have games like the order, dc, fh2, mcc. Plus don't have o worry about keyboard and mouse vs controller. Consoles for me unless I'm playing Rome 2 or coh2.
Imo PS4 succeeds the X1 and a Highend PC would succeed them both in terms of pure computational prowess. Then there are the games and here it really depends on which games you like. You like Starcraft, Warcraft, Dota, League of Legends, WoW, Age of Empires, HoN, Sins of a solar empire, Amnesia, Eve Online, ... then PC > * You like Uncharted, Last of Us, Sunset Overdrive, Gran Turismo, Forza, Gears/God of War,... then PS4/X1 > PC You like Smash Bros., New Super Mario Bros., Bayonetta, Donkey Kong, Mario Party, Kirby, Pikmin, Zelda, Metroid,... then Wii U > * I am tired of the freaking "console war" and the "pc master race". Which system is best for you depends on the type of gamer you are, one can not possibly rate them without considering personal preferences.
you can get ps4s and x1s at 330 dollar price range on amazon so this alienware machine is a waste of time
500 bucks hmmm i mean for a pc that isnt bad however the thing is so small why not just buy a better pc for a couple hundred more.
A lot of console users don't like the "complicated" aspects that come with pc's. Give them something more similar to consoles and you might have a better shot at selling them "pc's". Of course a normal pc would be better. I have mine in my living room hooked to my tv, wireless keyboard/mouse and usb 360/ps3 controller if needed. And with Steam UI, it's basically a semi console. My brother would probably buy something like this since he doesn't like complicated stuff. It's not bad, but you can already do this. Just take some tech stuff to learn and to maintain and for some that's too much.
I like it. Its cheap, compact and does everything. Very ideal for lower income individuals. By everything, I mean that it has pretty much all the functionality features of the consoles, as well as having PC functionality. Obviously enthusiasts will build a unique PC, but for a lot of people the extra time, money or even space are not optional.
Honestly you can do sooooo much more with a pc its kinda a good deal. Just 2 or 3 game release and you make up for the 100$ price difference
Plebs do anything to justify their console
