Alienware is all set to unveil its Area-51 gaming desktop and this time it has got an unusual makeover, probably based on the popular mathematical theorem-Pythagoras.
The design is dubbed as ‘Triad’- a small alien head in the front, top vents giving a look of scales and finally a slightly curved design.
Tech analysts say Alienware’s Area 51As has not designed the new gaming system as a traditional rectangle, but like a triple-bay hexagon of sorts.
Alienware discuses about the description in a post. It reads:
“It features an angled, easily accessible front I/O panel and hassle-free grips that make it simple to pivot your system forward to reach rear ports. Vast and open entryways on each side are designed to provide an easy way for you to perform upgrades, brainstorm new mods, or show off your rig.”
