Athlone, Ireland - 26th October, 2006 - How does a plan for shaking up the PC market take shape? Is it born in the (hive) minds of two friends and incubated in a small home in Miami? Does the planet catch its first glimpse of the future when a single communiqué appears in a well-respected publication? After 10 years of innovation and groundbreaking success, are the thousands of users in fields ranging from gaming and creative design to engineering and business beginning to make believers and converts out of the world's population?
The answer is an irrefutable YES.
Alienware® - the leading manufacturer of high-performance desktop, notebook, media center and professional systems is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. That's 10 years of showing the world that PCs don't have to be dull grey boxes without personality, style or edginess; 10 years of building the most powerful PCs for the world's most demanding PC users - gamers; 10 years of design and performance innovations that have been recognised by countless business and technology publications; 10 years of work, planning and execution destined to make the next 10 years even more incredible and exciting. www.alienware.co.uk/10yearPR
"When I think about what we've been able to do for our customers and the PC market over the last 10 years, I'm humbled - but not so humbled that I can't look ahead and see that Alienware is going to keep on pushing the envelope," said Alienware CEO Nelson Gonzalez. "Since the inception of the company in 1996, delivering ultimate performance, unmatched style and uncompromising service have always been core to Alienware's DNA, and we'll continue moving forward and upward. We truly believe that the stars really are the limit. After all, we didn't name the company 'Alienware' just because it sounds cool."
Already a recipient of numerous product and service awards, Alienware shows no signs of slowing down. Within the past few months, the company was among the first in the industry to release notebooks featuring Intel® Core 2 Duo processors. In addition, Alienware recently introduced an enhanced version of its Aurora m9700 notebook - the industry's first 17" mobile system to feature 1GB of graphics memory. The Aurora m9700 now comes in two additional new colour options, Conspiracy Blue and Cyborg Green, and offers total graphics domination with NVIDIA® SLI technology.
