Any word on x51 R2 bios..it seems in x51 description A12 which I have lists it as area 51 also. Is this something similar?

"This package BIOS A12 on Area 51 R2 system ...", looks like an employee typo. It's possible your R2 could get a bios update (that would or wouldn't patch Spectre/MltDwn) or your A12 from last year could be the last one ever. Spectre/MltDwn patches, I only see x51 R3 on the list. Suffice it to say, the A51 bios isn't compatible with x51

Yes, the -A12 bios- has been confirmed as a typo//so I will wait and see if x51 R2, will get something that's newer to address Meltdown.
I have A12 at present ..

Thank you.

the dell link- I have seen before and thank you, I really hope Dell will support X51 R2 with bios updates...
