PC manufacturer Alienware has been teasing a reveal at TGS that it says will "shake the gaming world to its foundation." As you can tell from the video after the jump and the company's Facebook page, there's not much more information than that to go on.


Video:


My theory:
Either they have come up with a brand new amazing super computer which wipes the floor with any other computer ever made. Or maybe they will bring out a laptop with a core i7 processor...
Or my final guess is they are going to bring out a gaming console?!

What do you think it is they are going to reveal?

That no one will be able to afford or could build yourself for a quarter of the price...

Maybe some kind of social networking thing?

That's a good shout on them making a gaming console actually. It will probably happen. Stupid though.

Alienware make money from rebadging third party components as their own or making systems built out of other company's parts and their own case. Can't quite see them having enough firepower to suddenly create a games console out of that. My guess is a gaming laptop. That is a laptop which has crappy battery life and costs twice as much as a more powerful desktop.

man, alienware is some of the most expensive computers i've ever seen... some look cool and all but, hardly any of us can afford a $2500 machine... i say it's a new next-gen gaming computer that costs more than a ford taurus...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

I thought they already had i7 laptops.

On another note, I don't really see the difference between pc manufacturers. It's not like Alienware is creating new cpus or gpus, they're just putting together machines with existing components. Other than a fancy case? I see no reason to buy an Alienware. My point is any one can go on Newegg and build their own 'Alienware' whenever they want.

Perhaps they can get an edge with advanced laptops, as those parts aren't as easily interchangeable.

Dunno if they're different in the US but there isn't an Alienware i7 laptop in the UK at least, so it could be that, or the i5, but that seems a bit new to have a laptop already.

The desktop cases and monitors are nice. Lots of lights and curves and things. The laptops are awful though.

agreed... i like the slick design, just not the slick price tag... my next computer will be another DELL... i'll get a pretty capable gaming machine for under $1000... that's what i did 7 years ago with my current PC... it ran games for many years until the newer games just started kicking it's butt...

if alienware can make a gaming laptop i'll be impressed... but, laptops with those capabilities are just too damn expensive anyways...

I assume it's a mobile-specific cpu, but if you go here: http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/con...p;~lt=alienware
and click 'customize>cpu' it lists a few i7 options.

You will ALWAYS be able to get a more powerful PC in the same price bracket with Apple Macs. You pay a massive markup for the Apple brand and the OS and the douchebag starbucks drinking image that some people think is cool with Apple etc..

That's not a bad graphics card(s) setup, but they could have done MUCH more.
