I have wanted an Alienware since I knew what Alienware was. When I first moved to Britain the husband tried to order one then but it was before they were taken over by Dell and it was a bit of a nightmare. We couldn't get the colours we wanted, the case, etc so we just went with something else in the end. But in my heart of hearts I coveted the alien (since I do have a particular penchant for blowing up gfx cards).
Some will say Alienware are all hype. Whatever. For me, who used to play on an e-machine, Alienware is the pinnacle of gaming rigs.
