Next up in our countdown of the Hottest 100 gadgets on the planet is the Alienware X51
This gaming PC looks a little like an Xbox 360 – with its matte and gloss finish – but that’s no bad thing. Alienware has gone big on illumination too, with LEDs behind the fascia logo and side grilles. You can personalise the colours, and even choose them to change depending on what’s happening in the game. Want them to go red when you’re under fire? Done. You can choose your own specs; among the options are 1GB GDDR5 Nvidia GeForce GTX555 and Intel Core i7-2600 processors, which’ll be like your secret weapon come fragging time.
