Most companies that make gaming PCs and laptops are trying to snag the attentions of new “casual” gamers. These customers either can’t afford to spend thousands of dollars on a high-end gaming device—or they don’t want to. However, they still want a machine that can handle their regular bouts of gaming.

Dell’s current answer for these customers has been its Inspiron 15 gaming laptop, but now it’s adding its first desktop PC to the Inspiron Gaming line. Today, the company announced the Inspiron Gaming Desktop, which it hopes will attract casual gamers who don’t need to bring their gaming endeavors outside their home.

Dell’s Inspiron Gaming Desktop looks like a standard tower, but with a cross-hatched, semi-open design on its bottom-left side. This design has practical and aesthetic purposes: it provides better ventilation for the PC’s internals while also giving the tower an edgy look that most customers associate with gaming devices. The center Dell logo and the inside of the PC emit an electric-blue light, which also fits with the gaming-device style (if you’re not into the blue light, there’s also a model with basic white light).
