even the most expensive one they have wouldnt even run it higher then a mix of medium/high.
Total nonesense and clearly from someone who hasn't got one! I have an X51 which has the i3 3230 3.3/NVidia GT545 (1GB DDR5)/4GB ram and I play BF3 at high setting with +60fps, it will even run at ultra but admittedly frame drops a bit when the action kicks off. I regularly play sim racing such as rFactor 2, Raceroom etc etc which is much more demanding than BF3 or COD and still hit over 60fps with high detail setting and that's with 26AI cars on track. So YES! it will run BF3 and you won't even hear the GPU fan speed up after 3 hours of gameplay!! FACT! from somebody who does have one.
The base Alienware X51 comes with an i3-2120 processor, and a GT 640.
This system will run battlefield 3 on minimum specifications. No higher.
This also comes in at $700 not including taxes and shipping.
You are able to custom order your own parts to built a computer in the same compact form, for $100 less, and a PC that has nearly twice the computational capabilities.
You are totally wrong! It can, It does. I play it almost every day! and my specs are lower! see post above. I'm using the X51 on a 32" Samsung TV through the DVi channel. no it's not 1920 but it's 10x better than a 360 or PS3 (and yes I own them too) so I'm not talking out of my ass.
