Well, from a technical standpoint, yes the PCs are fantastic performers but that is simply due to the hardware.
You could take a microwave and make it perform like an Alienware system if you use the right components.
I'm all for them, but you are paying that bit extra for the brand. If you want a beautiful looking system that will also run games at the fastest
possible speed, buy one! If you don't care about looks, do it yourself.
Don't forget, you can always buy the case yourself. The case Alienware uses is actually based on a stock case you can buy from most PC case
Here is the beauty I'm buying in January, the case is the Thermaltake Xaser II A6000A Plus:
