"Whoa, Nelly! We learned back at CES that Alienware's pretty-much-a-netbook would launch in the Spring for less than a grand, but now we know precisely what the base price will be: $799. "
I have to say I am shocked by the prices I've been seeing coming out lately. First, it was the iPad starting at $499, and now Alienware will allegedly offer their lilliputian gaming notebook starting at $799. Maybe this is their idea of a stimulus package. Granted, for a 11" notebook, the price is not that phenomenal, but price makes it seem like Alienware is considering trying out the sales volume method of making profits, over charging a premium for their brand. I do have to wonder what the base model will provide, and whether it will be competitive against other quasi-gaming ultra-light laptops like the ASUS UL30VT, but more details should be coming within the next few weeks. I am already saving up!
