The worst computer I have ever owned was an Alienware laptop.

Terrible customer service and too expensive for what I got.

I was willing to pay extra for the suposed better quality and support from Alienware.

Boy was I wrong about both of those.

Why does MaxPC insist on advertising for Alienware.  They have by far the worst customer ratings in the industry.  There are much better builders out there, assuming you're not building it yourself.

But they have an alien's face on the enclosure, and that makes them really gay.

I actually went to the configuration link just to be sure they actually paired an Intel Core i7 3930K, with a Radeon 6870 and called it a "gaming rig". You'd likely get better gaming performance out of a 2600K and a 6950 and save yourself about a $160 off the top right there.

Build your own and your geek friends won't call you gay.

only reason i have an Alienware Aurora is because i had an extended warranty on my XPS 710..the MOBO went bad so they sent me the aurora..was nothing special..i parted it out and used some of the parts on my new build.

my new build BLOWS away anything Alienware!

What? Businesses want to make a profit? GASP! How dare they! At least the price : perfomance ratio is better than that of Apple. These are for people who want to game and don't want / know how to build their own PC's.

As a side note, I wish they would sell just the case. I, at least, think the cases look cool. It's a shame the hardware inside is rather mediocre.

There is a difference between making a profit and gouging. The Alienware brand once commanded top-tier pricing, but they are no longer an upper-echelon boutique vendor.
