Alienware computers for free!



  • Yup, Alienware's transition to Dell ownership is affecting it's (Usually stellar) site:

    Oh, and configure an ALX Area-51 system and try and add a soundcard or PhysX card. The system has 2 PCI-Express video cards in, which allows no room for any more expansion. Yet they put options in their configurator for extra cards (And tell you off when you try and add them, as there's no space for them). 



  • I guess it's only for mastercard customers.

    Buying out alienware: 500 million dollars,
    Website Redesign: 2 million dollars,
    Monthly Price of Product: NaN

    ----

    Oh, and FIRST POST!

    NaN != 0.

    What they're saying is that you can buy this computer on their finance plan, but you will have to spend something that cannot be expressed in terms of dollars.

    Like perhaps your soul...

    Well, keep in mind it's Alienware... so think less Satanic, more anal probing... 



  • Well they did say performance doesn't have to come at a price!



  • So every month I should send a check for sqrt(-1) dollars?

    [/quote]It's Dell now, so they amended that.

    Well, Dell did buy the Porche of computers. Why you'd pay that 20% premium for something you'll never want to take out of your room is beyond me.

    I did the customization for kicks, didn't see the PhysX card or second GPU, so I assume Dell got some nasty emails about it already. (Or someone there surfs here, who knows...) Wish they'd let you customize a system more thoroughly, instead of offering just that 2 or 3 choices for every component - if they're all in the same family (eg nvidia) , it won't make integration any harder.
