Reducing security risks from open source software

Alienware Area-51 m9750

At the back there are both VGA and DVI video outs as well as S-Video. You'll also find a further USB port, mains power input, and connectors for the optional TV tuner card. At the front of the machine is the DVD writer, flanked either side by speakers. A row of touch sensitive buttons are arranged in a strip above the keyboard, providing quick access to applications and media controls. The touchpad is situated sufficiently far from the keyboard that accidentally activating it while typing is unlikely.

With such high end specs inside the m9750, its Windows Experience Index score of 4.7 is initially a little disappointing. However, since the score is represented by the lowest category score, it's the memory performance that drags it down to 4.7. For graphics and gaming it scores the current maximum of 5.9, while the hard drive performance comes in at 5.8, and finally the processor is rated at 5.2.

Running it through PCMark05 resulted in a reasonable overall score of 5,791, with sub-scores of 5,788 for CPU, 4,357 for memory, 5,804 for graphics, and 4,297 for hard disk.
