The ease and experience of a console
Alienware exclusive console interface: The Alienware Alpha can boot directly into HiveMind, an exclusive user interface that provides easy streamlined controller-based navigation - no mouse or keyboard needed.

Gaming, simplified: Quickly download games straight to your Alpha Console with the click of a few buttons, or remotely from your phone. All your games stay up to date and ready to play, all the time.

Multiple accounts, one system: Merge everything you love about PC gaming with the sociability of your living room. Steam Big Picture supports multiple Steam accounts and libraries on one system, so you can have fun with your Steam friends whether they’re sitting right next to you or gaming from afar.

It's your choice: Whether you want a console gaming experience with an included Xbox controller, or a keyboard/mouse combination in desktop mode, you can game the way you want on the big screen in 1080p Full HD beauty.

A true “next-gen” system
Powered by Steam Big Picture: Valve brings the benefits of Steam — millions of users to play with, thousands of games across multiple platforms, user modifications and more — to the living room via Steam Big Picture on the Alienware Alpha. Better yet, you can kick back on your sofa with just your controller – no keyboard and mouse required.

The Next Generation of Graphics: Based on NVIDIA’s newest ‘Maxwell’ architecture, with 2GB of GDDR5 memory at its disposal, the Alienware Alpha’s custom-built GPU ensures you get plenty of performance to crank up your settings on your big screen TV. In fact, the Alpha's NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU outperforms the NVidia GeForce GTX 860M GPU*.

Start with a strong core: New 4th generation Intel® Core™ Haswell processors allow for fantastic gaming on all the latest and greatest titles.

Four powerful configurations: Choose from multiple Alienware Alpha options — detailed in the Configurations tab — ranging up to Intel® Quad-Core™ i7 processor power, a custom NVIDIA Maxwell GTX graphics with 2GB GDDR5 memory, 8GB RAM and 2TB* of hard drive space. Each configuration comes with a dual-band AC wireless card for prioritized wireless network connectivity and increased range.

More than A Gaming Console: Alpha takes you where other consoles can’t; plug in a keyboard and mouse and transform your Alpha into a fully functional Windows 8 PC.

Upgrades welcome: The Alienware Alpha is user-accessible, so you can feel free to upgrade the CPU and RAM for better in-game performance and background application multitasking and add hard drive space to store more games.
