Alienware gets bought

http://www.betanews.com/article/Dell...are/1143070457

Quote:
"We believe that Alienware will realize significant advantages from Dell's world-class supply chain and operational efficiencies," Alienware CEO Nelson Gonzalez said. "They will allow us to continue to satisfy our core customers with the most innovative and highest-performing PCs, and ultimately extend the reach and appeal of the Alienware brand."
Quote:
Alienware fans should not fear that their favorite PCs will soon bear the Dell logo -- the company would be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dell, yet operate separately. The move is merely mainly aimed at bettering the company's supply chain, says Dell and Alienware.

Wonder if that means that Alienware will loose the A64 processor. If that's the case, I will loose what little respect I had for them.

Re: Alienware gets bought

isnt this old news? i though alienware has been under Dell for about a year now.

and yeah, AW's suck. i priced one that came out to 7600 bucks. i went on newegg and priced out the exact same components to 1600 bucks.

Dell has owner AW for awhile now. Their websites were the exact same for a long time.

Re: Alienware gets bought

pre-built performance and affordable does not go together.
