Confirmed: Dell Buying Alienware (Or, Now Dell Sells AMD PCs)


Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Corporate News, PC / Laptop


Dell AlienwareDespite all the denials, previous reports have turned out to be true - Dell is buying Alienware for an undisclosed amount of cash. Alienware’s high-end computers are both clamored for by gamers, and scoffed at because of their high prices. According to Dell, Alienware will continue to operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the parent company. Dell revamped its XPS line in 2001, looking to tap into the PC gamer market, but they never quite got there. With the purchase of Alienware, it appears that they have finally arrived. No word yet on how this affects the XPS line.

The other interesting part of this story is that, with the acquisition of Alienware, Dell finally sells AMD-based computers. This puts Apple in the position of being the only computer manufacturer building Intel-based machines, with no AMDs in their product line.
