iBUYPOWER Debuts Walmart-Exclusive SLATE9050W Gaming PC


Consumers in search of a boutique or pre-built PC have been able to get them from iBUYPOWER since 1999. Over the decades, it has managed to expand its distribution to a number of physical and online retail outlets. It is not uncommon to find one at close to what it may cost to build yourself. Well, one such type of offering has just debuted as a Walmart exclusive, and it is already selling fast: the SLATE9050W.



  • CPU: Intel Core i5 9400F 6-Core @ 2.9 GHz, boosts up to 4.10 GHz
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6 GB
  • RAM: 8GB DDR4 2666 MHz Memory
  • Storage: 240 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD
  • OS: Windows 10 Home 64bit
  • Input: RGB Gaming Keyboard + Mouse
  • Cooling: 3 x Side RGB Fans + 1 x Rear RGB Fans

At $799, it is priced to make even the most ardent console gamer to consider getting a PC. Unfortunately, a number of details are not listed in the provided specs. Presently, it is unknown what PSU, motherboard, ports, or type of SSD is available with the SLATE9050W. However, a closeup view of the motherboard does reveal a few details. We can clearly see an ASUS TUF Gaming label at the top right of the board. Also, there are at least three unused SATA III ports on the bottom right, plus an unknown amount of ports on the side. There’s also what appears to be a potential NVMe shield underneath the GPU as well.


A PC such as this should perform well at 1080p for gaming and even be able to dabble in 1440p as well. It could also be a great starter rig for a beginner looking to learn about PC building.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
