Alienware Area-51

Does Alienware Area-51 comes with that top venting system or only the ALX version?

Re: Alienware Area-51

Lol, I had my hopes up for nothing x_x

By the way, is this possible of Area-51 with sound card, dual gpu, a wifi card as well.?

Should I expect a delay or cancellation? It was done by them. In production since 11/24/09-12/05/09

++Also I heard ATI Radeon 5870 could also delay your shipping?

Re: Alienware Area-51

Active Venting comes standard with both Alienware Area 51 and ALX. The only difference between the two machines is that ALX has an anodized aluminum chassis and a motorized bay door.

Re: Alienware Area-51

Re: Alienware Area-51

Now, I'm confused lol..someone confirm this who have it lol..

Though this sounds like somewhat only ALX version.

Aurora ALX Featured Options:

Exclusive "Active Venting" thermal system not available on Aurora

Up to 24GB of High Performance DDR3 1333 DDR3 Memory

-This however is incorrect, Aurora has up to 24GB as well.

Area-51 ALX Featured Options:

Exclusive "Active Venting" thermal management system

 

So, I'm not sure. And what is the deal with Aurora having up to 24GB of ram but Area-51 and ALX up to 12GB Max memory?

look at this link for Area 51 (non-alx) on the Dell website  - it indicates Active Venting is a standard option for Area 51 systems.   i

Re: Alienware Area-51

Yeah, it seems that Aurora does not even have any indecation of having Active Venting.

However, when you check the details for Aurora ALX, they mentioned active venting.

Just like in Area-51 both version details mentions active venting system.

But, I wonder if anyone from Dell can confirm this?
