By the way ... that's not quite true. Alienware does not make the individual components, but the do (did?) design and assemble everything in their factory. Had a chance to tour the Headquarters and factory in Miami and it was impressive.
If they are now totally one with Dell, the way it affects us is that's just one more entity gone who was creating PCs and notebooks geared towards gamers. Alienware did have a nice feature set, especially for higher end gaming notebooks. I'm not saying they were perfect, but they made some very nice products.
Have also heard that they will be closing their factories, but operating within Dell. We'll just have to see.
