So the future of Alienware may be in the hands of Dell. It's not fully confirmed, but it appears that Dell has purchased Alienware. CNET reports that the deal for Dell to take over Alienware has been sealed and all those Alienware employees are hoping to keep their jobs.

That's going to really change for me the name that Alienware has established.

Alienware has a very good reputation for playing games, I would hate to see this slashed by the common Dell PC which is useless for gaming and even worse when it comes to using it for home/office use.

My dell experience's has not been very good.

dell also sucks for modifying.. it almost has no extra pci slots and its not even good... if u want another pci slot u need a new motherboard... so u basically already bought that motherboard and they aren't good

this is disturbing news to hear . Alien ware has a good produt and i would hate to see Alienwares direction changed buy Dell . I a personaly know people who have worked for Dell Canada and Dell U.S. and beleave me when I say that there so called award winning service is bullshit and If you have a failed part on your dell pc you are getting a refurbished part not new like in your warranty . This just some of the poo-poo that Dell pawns off on there customers . Also lets talk about the out sourcing that Dell does in both canda and the U.S. that takes away jobs from both countrys to places like India . These people bearly speak English . But they work for less the 700 u.s. dollars a year, cheaper is not always better. So if Dell has purchased Alienware Computers than the future is not good for them and I will continue to build my own computers and Dell can rip the rest of the people off with there garbage PC's but not me I know better . So scobby 22 build your own computer and I promice you you will get more profmance for your hard won cash .

I don't need (or want for that matter) tech support or a 2nd license of windows, thing you are paying for when you buy an OEM comp... That's why (generally) I build my own...

It's not hard to homebuild, the hardest part is figuring out what MB / CPU / RAM goes together. And there are places like MWave that sell motherboard bundles where they do that homework for you.

The last pre-built system I've bought (other then the laptops) was back in 1997-ish. Since then, I've always built my own with no issues. The big bonus is that I can often reuse the power supply, case, video cards, DVD drives, hard drives, etc between systems as I upgrade.

That's wierd news. I hope they don't swallow Alienware up. Maybe Alienware will build Dell's XPS computers.

As for Dell, I stand on both sides of the line. I have a 2001 Dimension 8100 and it blows. Upgradeability is minimal and it has $$$ Rambus $$$. I had a 2002 Inspiron 4150 and it was okay but real plasticy. Now I have a 2005 XPS Gen 2 and it is by far my favorite computer I've owned.

I do think I'll build my next desktop. I was about to before I bought the XPS last year. I built several PCs in the late 90's and was always pissed to have to buy Win 9X for all of them.
