    [news=http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/3840/untitled10nw.png]Dell has agreed to purchase gaming PC maker Alienware, in a rare acquisition designed to improve Alienware's supply chain and boost Dell's standing among PC enthusiasts.

    Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Alienware will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of the world's largest PC maker, said Nelson Gonzalez, chief executive officer of Alienware. Gonzalez will now report to Jim Schneider, Dell's chief financial officer, but the company will operate separately from Dell, he said.

    This is a killer deal for Dell. They were drooling over Alienware's profit margins.

    I know almost makes me want to reconsider Dell . Where my wife works the company will help the employees buy a computer [ Dell] on a payrole deduction plan , I might look at the options as money's tight .
