Deal for April 16th - Alienware X51 SFF with GTX 645 and Ubuntu @ $600

Today's deal is not something you see every day, a WiFi enabled console sized Alienware PC running Ubuntu.  At that $600 price you get a Core i3-3220 @ 3.3GHz, 6GB RAM, 1TB HDD, DVD burner, a 1GB GTX 645, and pre-installed UBUNTU Linux 12.04.  It also comes with a one year warranty which could come in handy if you are unfamiliar with Linux.  This might not be the Linux powered Steambox of rumour, but it will certainly function as one and will provide more fun than speculating on when or if that device will ever be released.

As much fun as speculating on when or if PCPER is going to benchmark these computers! And benchmark them with some open source software, I would love to see some Blender 3d gaming and 3d modeling benchmarks! The low end X51 may be good for high polygon 3d modeling as well as light gaming!
