by Reads (1,516)

Alienware recently announced a price cut in their traditional lineup with the introduction of the new Alienware Area-51 750i.  The new machine is more approachable to the general public, coming in with an introductory price of $1,049. 

The new 750i brings with it all of the trappings of the Area 51 flagship line, such as the striking case design, LED lighting and the rest of the Alienware add-ons.  The $1,049 starting price offers up a fairly capable system composed of a 3GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 250GB hard drive, and a GeForce 9800GT.  The 750i can scale all the way up with its big brothers by upgrading to Intel’s Quad Core Extreme chips, 3TB of hard drive storage, 8GB RAM, CrossFire Radeon 4870X2 video cards and a Blu-ray optical drive.

The 750i follows Alienware’s newest product branding scheme by describing the chipset used.  The 750i uses the NVIDIA 750i chipset, the Area-51 790i uses the NVIDIA 790i chipset, etc.  Systems will start shipping in a couple of weeks.

Come back this weekend for our own Alienware Area-51 review.
