It's said the eyes are the windows to your soul. Computers don't have eyes, but they do have monitors, which are the eyes to their souls, or at least to what you're trying to manipulate them to do. Since you'll be gazing into your PC's monitor every time you use it, why short change yourself on a crappy panel? There are better options, including today's top deal for a Dell S2340M 23-inch LCD Monitor for $120 with free shipping (normally $160 - use coupon code: [EMCPBWH22]). It has an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel, Full HD 1080p resolution, and is virtually borderless.

In an alternate reality, Dell is launching its Alienware Alpha PC game console as its official Steam Machine. In this world, however, Valve threw a wrench into every OEM's plans by delaying the launch of its Steam Machine platform until next year, as it wanted more time to tweak its Steam Controller. Fair enough, though not all system builders are willing to put their PC console plans on hold. Enter Alienware, which today announced it's taking pre-orders for its Alpha console.
Alienware’s M11x gaming laptop launched to mostly favorable reviews in 2010 (we gave it a stellar 9/10) and even managed to amass a small, cult-like following before it got phased out in 2012. Since then the company has ignored entreaties for the 11-inch notebook’s revival, sticking with larger notebooks instead. That does not mean there is no room for a smaller and lighter laptop in Alienware’s portfolio.
You want to build a new system, but school is about to start, and books aren't cheap. Neither is tuition, and let's not forget about a little fund for beer money. What's a budding PC builder to do?

One possible route starts with today's top deal for an AMD A8-5600K Quad-Core Desktop APU for $90 with free shipping (normally $100 - use coupon code: [EMCPBPE24]).

Think about the one thing you stare at all day during work hours. Right, the ceiling -- it's the best way to space out when you're at work. And the second thing? Your monitor, of course.

Be kind to your eyeballs and check out today's top deal for a Dell UltraSharp U2412M 24-inch LED Monitor for $240 with free shipping (normally $265 - use coupon code: [EMCPCHA48].

Dell isn't letting Valve's Steam Machine delay ruin its plans to invade the living room
By now you've likely heard that official Steam Machines won't launch until sometime next year when Valve is finished tweaking its Steam Controller prototype (and if you haven't heard, you should bookmark Maximum PC!). That's a bit of a pisser, though it isn't stopping OEM system builders from forging ahead with plans to release console-like PC systems. Case in point, Alienware just announced its Alpha Console starting at $549.

Dell comes to Computex packing a bevy of product announcements
Michael Dell is now in full control of the company he founded (along with the investment groups that backed him), and while he was quick to take the world's third largest PC maker private, that doesn't mean there will be any shortage of public announcements. Just the opposite, Dell today announced no less than eight products spanning four different categories at Computex, including a pair of Android tablets.
