Our friends at Alienware sent over the brand new Alienware Alpha R2 and Dell 27 inch monitor over for us to review. No one is more excited than my 11-year-old Elijah (well, my husband was pretty stoked, but he knew this machine would be used by the kid.) As the kid knows, if you are going to play on it – you better help me review it – so that is what he did. Check out our unboxing video below.
Elijah has been playing on the Alpha R2 for the last week, he even set it up by himself. We are counting down the days until we go back to school, until then – all day and all night, well anytime that we let him – this machine is running Minecraft, Roblox or he is using to build something Scratch.

Alienware Vindicator Carrying Case
This carry case is specially designed for all-around protection of the Alienware Alpha R2. It has safety-cell technology for all-around protection which means my son can pack up the Alpha R2 in this case and take it over to his cousin’s house. Portable gameplay, an 11-year-old’s dream.
The case is zippered and has a fleece-lined accessories compartment with adjustable padded dividers to organize your game controllers, power supply, and additional gear. The total crush-proof protection which with kids, is a must.
Alienware provided products for this unboxing and review, but opinions and commentary are 100% my own.
