Sorry, 59 million Americans -- you can't buy Alienware's new gaming PC

Anthony Garreffa | Tue, Jul 27 2021 7:11 PM CDT

Dell's brand new Aurora R10 and R12 desktop gaming PCs can't be sold to 59 million+ Americans... the reason? New power regulations in multiple US states prohibits the sale of these PCs -- meaning Dell can't ship them to you.

Sorry, 59 million Americans -- you can't buy Alienware's new gaming PC 01 | TweakTown.com

The reason why Dell can't ship these new Alienware Aurora R10/R12 desktop PCs is "due to power consumption regulations". California's new Energy Consumption Tier 2 began on July 1, 2021 and is much tighter on power regulations... almost too strong.

This means you can't buy a new Alienware Aurora R10/R12 desktop PC if you're in California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont, or Washington. Across those US states, are 59 million+ Americans that are barred from gaming on a new high-end Alienware PC.

Aftershock PC has just opened up a gigantic new HQ in Melbourne, Australia -- with the Singaporean brand expanding its operations Down Under in a big way... one would say, causing aftershocks in the custom PC making business in Australia.

In a new post on their official Facebook page, Aftershock PC said that their new 40,000 sqft facility will allow them to make some of the most EPIC PCs on Earth. I personally visited the Aftershock PC offices in Melbourne, Australia a few years ago but this new HQ absolutely blows their previous HQ out of the water.

Aftershock PC explains: "Located in the heart of Melbourne, the new 40,000 sqft facility will allow us to produce some of the most EPIC PCs on the planet. As a proud Singaporean company, its been just over 3 years since we've expanded regionally, and our mission to bring our local Singaporean brand and flavor of custom PC building with quality service beyond our shores has been a blast".
