Mumblevine: Dell To Buy Alienware

Speculation, thy name is fun:

In recent news it seems that Dell the PC and notebook giant, may buy out another large computer retailer Alienware. The reason for such a drastic action maybe because of Dell’s lately decaying image. Michael Dell's plan to buy Alien ware is supposed to raise the cool factor of their computers and put Dell in a much better position. Even though the XPS line is doing pretty well, with a helping touch from Alienware’s designers it may look even better than it does now.


"Alienware can not and will not comment on any speculative stories such as the one that appeared on Rahul Sood’s blog yesterday. While we do believe that the story is ultimately a strong positive reinforcement of the Alienware brand and the company’s success, we will not comment on speculation or potential future events. As always, Alienware is committed to offering consumers and businesses with the best high-performance, innovative PC products on the market and we remain manically focused on that goal."
-- Dell buying Alienware?

I can't really muster the energy to make a prediction here as the possibility of buying from either company has decreased sharply over the years. Dell has definately shown an interest in higher end gaming rigs and Alienware knows that stuff quite well, so it wouldn't be the worst merger in the world.
