Alienware drops 4X Blu-Ray burning into desktops

Alienware 4X Blu-Ray

Alienware today announced that it was adding faster Blu-Ray drives to its desktop line, letting computers equipped with the option both read and write HD media twice as quickly as the 2X drives used in previous Alienware systems and any current system from its parent company Dell. This should also be the first large-scale builder to carry this speed drive in its systems, Alienware says. The disc drives are capable of writing dual-layer, 50GB Blu-Ray discs as well as legacy CD and DVD formats.

Blu-Ray is currently a $600 option for the Area-51 7500 and Aurora 7500, as well as their premium ALX equivalents. Systems can be ordered with the storage immediately and shouldn't affect the final ship times for any of the towers beyond the typical delays needed for the customization process.
