....rumor has it. :rolleyes:

cnetThe new source, a contact at a high-end vendor who requested anonymity, claims that two of his company's suppliers confirmed that the deal has been done, and he also claims that his company has received an influx of resumes from Alienware employees.

As someone commented on that article, check the layouts of the two sites. Probably coincidence, but see any similarities?

I had my dream to own a custom made alienware, no one can make that sort of quality, they even cut cables and cooling pipes to exact length

:uhh: read this: http://www.maximumpc.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=33091

Quality? Don't try to make me laugh. If you want REAL quality and dedication, buy from Falcon Northwest.

Honestly, whoop-de-f!@#ing-doo! Dell's XPS line is getting along pretty good, so I would think it's only natural that they try and eliminate the biggest of the high-end only makers.

because alienware will have to stop using AMD's, and give intel an even bigger advantage than it already has. :( good point about the prices tho..

Where did you read that they'll stop using AMD with Alienware?? As far as advantage... over what? They are already hands down the bigger of the two by far. AMD still rules hardcore gamers. Funny, I did a survey the other day for Steam and out of the several thousands of users that completed the survey. I reviewed the results of users and only a mere 51% were using AMD's. Once again I hold NO blind faith to any one company. My dollars go to the company that deliver the BEST goods. Wether it be AMD or Intel, ATI or Nv. That said, at the moment it's the two A's, AMD and ATI.
