Just a few years ago, most of us would have laughed at the prospect of a $1,000 Alienware system. But such is the reality now that the company is owned by Dell. Their newly announced Area-51 750i starts at a palatable $1,049 and features a 3GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM, GeForce 9800 GT video card, 250GB hard drive and beefy 750W power supply. That's not an unbelievable gaming rig, but you still get the premium case with screwless bays and in-your-face style to spare. Units ship later this month. [Alienware via Electronista]
**SIGH**. Guys, guys, and confused males. May I remind you of one simple fact that you are all overlooking. It's a gaming rig. Meaning, the people who will buy it and use it, will have excess cash. How you ask?
Cause gamers who play on gaming rigs don't go on dates...So that saves them $200 a month.
Cause gamers who play on gaming rigs don't wear clothes unless they have a high spandex to polyester ratio...So that saves them $175 a month.
Cause gamers who play on gaming rigs don't shower...So that saves them $40 a month.
Cause gamers who play on gaming rigs don't spoil themselves with well-nourished meals, but drink Mountain Dew and foods that come in crinkle sounding packaging...So that saves them $210 a month.
Cause gamers who play on gaming rigs live with their parents, and not on their own...So that saves them $1200 a month.
I could go on, but I won't. Point is, people who buy gaming rigs, can, because they have the funds to do so. Personally, I like knowing what the feel of a woman feels like, and wearing clothes that don't require a drawstring, but hey, that's me.
