How it went using a full Alienware setup for a month

I’ve been ramping up my coverage of hardware here at Windows Central, aiming to offer you (the reader) thoughtful and thorough insight into the good, bad, and ugly of the products asking for your money. One company in particular didn’t hesitate to take advantage of my hardware frenzy. That company is Alienware, which is trying to expand its hardware portfolio outside of laptops, desktops, and monitors to also include all the accessories PC gamers need.

I’ve been on an Alienware binge, recently, reviewing five of the company’s latest products and evaluating them both on their individual merits and as part of the wider Alienware ecosystem. With just over a month spent with this gaming setup, does Alienware have what it takes to occupy every place on your desk? Alienware is certainly heading in the right direction, but things aren’t perfect, yet… Let’s talk about it.

Great hardware wrapped in consistent design

Alienware has always been known for its style. For years, the company has stood apart from everyone else with out-of-this-world designs that placed the aesthetics above all else. Some of those designs have been controversial with users, but Alienware has steadily refined its design language without losing the Alienware touch. Now, the company’s latest lineup of products falls under the “Legend 3” design language, and it’s the best (and least controversial) Alienware has ever looked.

All of Alienware’s products have a consistent, refined style that you’ll either love or hate (but mostly love).
