Turning the Alienware Alpha Into a Steam Machine

There's nothing quite like the Alienware Alpha. For just $500, it's a competent Windows gaming PC. But it should have been the flagship Steam Machine. The Alpha was designed to be a Linux game console with a gamepad good enough to replace a mouse and keyboard. As easy to use as PlayStation or Xbox, but with more… » 2/20/15 3:00pm 2/20/15 3:00pm

For those who like to really spoil their eyes, Dell's new 27-inch monitor services them a whopping resolution of 5120×2880. That works out to 14.7 million pixels in total, and 218 PPI.
