Posted on October 18, 2021

Alienware have really spent the last couple of years focusing on their impressive gaming laptop lineup, but it’s once again time for the desktop PC to shine. Alienware have unveiled the new Alienware Aurora, which “offers the ultimate gaming power and toolless entry making it Alienware’s most accessible and upgradeable desktop to date.​”

The Alienware Aurora has a new open-air chassis design increases internal chassis volume by a whopping 50% without significantly expanding the overall footprint. Additionally, it comes with an optional transparent panel so you can see all the cool tech that’s going on inside. It’s a curvier, bulkier design than the previous desktop PC Alienware released; check it out.

The new Alienware Aurora comes in two colour options, Lunar Light and Dark Side of the Moon. There’s also an optional, magnetic, cable cover that neatly stows cables and conceals ports on the rear side, so your piece of kit can look good from all angles. The new Aurora includes several key features:

  • – Enhanced acoustics​: Open layout chassis with better air flow and thermal solution for a quieter system for customers​
  • – Upgraded thermal ceiling: Up to four 120mm system fans and liquid cooling options to provide a robust thermal architecture
  • – Flexibility and upgradeability​: Toolless design, better accessibility and premium component options allow for customisation
  • – New customisation options: For the first time, Alienware is offering an optional transparent left-side panel for gamers to gaze inside and admire a dark new motherboard illuminated by up to eight unique zones of AlienFX customisable lighting.
