The folks at Computer Shopper got some inside info on Alienware's new offerings, and from the looks of it, we're in for some treats. First up is the Hangar 18 HD HTPC. We've talked about it before, but the system is finally expected to launch this week. According to Shopper, Alienware will also give extra emphasis to system design starting in the next few months as they make the push from boutique seller to mainstream. As for those Santa Rosa-based notebooks, they'll be coming soon, although no solid dates were mentioned.

UPDATE: We spoke with Alienware who told us the Hangar system won't launch for another few weeks. Stay tuned.
