After hearing rumours for a couple of weeks about Dell's move to purchase enthusiast PC company "Alienware", it's finally been confirmed. This shouldn't change much in the way either of the mobs operate being that Alienware shall continue to operate as a standalone division. It seems the only notable change made since the ties were made is that Alienware's website now has similar layout characteristics to Dells.
Sourced over at the Inquirer, Alienware speak up on why they were happy to settle with Dell taking control of the reigns.
IN AN INTERESTING turn of events, CEO of Alienware sent an e-mail to all of the soon-to-be "Dellienware" staff explaining why the company has accepted the offer and what Dell will do for it in the future. The email is a bit different that the one written and approved by Dull's company watchdogs.
While the whole mail makes an interesting read, the thing that could potentially worry current and future customers of Dellienware is the fact that the press release mentioned something about deploying Dell's experiences in business practices and customer support.
