I think what you forgot was that the Benzel hold alot of stuff behind it that are useful that need to be hidden or tucked away. 1) The alienware Sign (Maybe Unnecessary) 2) LCD inverter 3) Web Camera 4) Built in Microphone 5) Wifi Antenna and sometimes bluetooth all of that is tucked away behind there thus edge to edge display is highly unlikely the thinnest you could possible get would probably the what the Apple PC's currently have.
I think you could fit all that stuff behind the actual LCD and reduce the bezels to nearly nothing with almost no problem*. I don't think I would want such a panel due to the fact that opening the lid would leave me with finger smudges all over my screen, but I think it could be possible.
*At least the side bezels. If you want to shrink the top and bottom bezels you'd need to either get rid of or relocate the camera. Also, none of the systems I've ever had had the mic in one of the bezels, they've always been in the body (either palm rest or near the top of the keyboard). Though I've never had a AW either.
