I'm writing this before E3 begins since Alienware sent me a note under embargo, and all I know is that they've developed a "super rare concept design" with AMD and are showcasing it at their booth (#747 for my fellow E3 attendees) in the South Hall of the LA Convention Center beginning Tuesday. Rest assured I will get up close and personal and attempt to steal it gather any information I can.

Alienware is also showing off a VR backpack powered by the new version of their Alpha PC. More details as soon as we know it. Keep an eye on our Facebook feed for any breaking E3 info.
