Dell/Alienware rumors debunked

By Justin Mann on March 17, 2006, 12:37 PM
It seems that the rumors of an acquisition of Alienware by Dell are, just that, rumors. For most people, this comes as good news - it was quite a shock to hear of the enthusiast-oriented company being taken over by a mass-desktop oriented company. The CEO of Voodoo PC had this to say about the rumors:

"I'd suggest you take that speculation with a grain of salt given the origin stated in the blog (Alienware's competitor)--you can never be sure what the motivation is," McKeon told ZDNet Australia via e-mail. He also questioned the reasons behind such an acquisition, stating that Dell has the potential to be seen as a "cool" company and is more than capable of building viable gaming machines without Alienware's help.
Which makes perfectly logical sense. Dell already has "enthusiast" level machines for sale anyways.

Rumors or not, don't listen to Rahul. Do you think he wants to compete with Dell? He dosen't like Conroe, people may just wait and not buy his over-priced boxes for months and Dell will get them cheap and most likely first.
