I don't know why everyone is freaking out. Yes, Dell bought Alienware, HOWEVER, Alienware is still it's own entity. Meaning, they operate by themselves while being owned by Dell. Becides, Alienware can take a thing or two from Dell, like tips on how to perform better in the budget market.

Dell has already stated that Alienware will operate independently.

Alienware and Dell have announced an agreement to merge, with Dell buying the Miami company. Alienware has long been a very independent company with a strong focus on highly tuned customer support and customization. Alienware pioneered the custom PC business by doing such things as: customizing the manual in the customer's name; including benchmarks of the system, installing and tweaking drivers, and installing whatever games the customer wanted. Long story short, Alienware gave great individualized attention to its patrons.

We believe that this acquisition will offer our customers the best of both worlds an Alienware that takes advantage of the world-class business practices and operational efficiencies that have made Dell one of the most respected companies in the world, while preserving the DNA of the Alienware brand and product strategy portfolio.

Alienware says that Dell executives have agreed to let Alienware operate independently, with its own marketing and product strategies. In the above statement however, it's clear that Alienware expects to embrace some of Dell's own strengths, which sit squarely in the realm of low cost, mass production, and offshore support. All of these traits give Dell its strength -- besides its sell direct approach, which Alienware already does.

Surprisingly, Rahul Sood, VoodooPC's president and our resident blogger recently predicted that Dell would buy Alienware in a blog he wrote several weeks ago. It will be interesting to see how Dell corporate will transform Alienware. Nelson Gonzalez, Chief Executive Officer of Alienware has a statement.

Interestingly, Alienware sells PCs based on AMD's processors, but Dell does not.

You're obviously still in a state of shock, or you just didn't read what I posted.

ALIENWARE IS STILL INDEPENDENTLY OPERATED!

Frankly I don't like either company. Alienware has great PCs at a steep $$$. Dell has crappy PCs at a good $$$. TDP has great PCs at a great price. Normally beating dell in price, and matching alienware in quality.
