Dell and Alienware to merge?

By Derek Sooman on March 16, 2006, 6:37 PM
Rumours still abound about a possible Dell and Alienware merger, with whispers that the PC giant is out to purchase the PC maker. Both companies, however, have declined to comment on the rumours. However, there was a statement released on Tuesday night by Alienware that apparently appreciated the attention the rumors have generated.

Reports linking the two surfaced earlier this month. On March 1, VoodooPC chief Rahul Sood, a competitor of Alienware, speculated on his blog that Dell, looking to gain cachet in the boutique PC market, might be looking to buy Alienware. Since Dell couldn't crack the "cool factor" with its own brand, Sood wrote, the company would be forced to make an acquisition.

Not really. It depends. As long as they merge financially but computerwise, it stays a little bit far from eachother then it should be fine.
