Alienware is a pre built PC aimed at gaming. The aesthetics may look nice and the system is powerful but is the price tag worth it? Here we are going to take a closer look at alienware and see whether or not the price tag is worth it.
Alienware was founded in 1996 by Nelson Gonzalez and Alex Aquila. The headquarters is located in Florida. Alienware was purchased in 2006 by Dell. Alienware computers offer high performance hardware for gaming and sleek design cases. The reason why the price is so high is because of the design case and how it’s marketed towards gaming. Alienware may not be worth it because for a few hundred dollars less you can build your own PC and get similar performance or better. One important thing to mention is that you get a warranty from Dell when you purchase an Alienware PC which could make it worth it.
However If you have the money and don’t mind spending the extra money for the design and brand then go for it. For everybody else I suggest learning how to build your own PC. If you decide to build your own PC make sure you get professional assistance. Building your own PC can be dangerous if incompatible hardware is used together such as an incorrect power supply or other parts which can potentially cause a fire. This is very important to remember if deciding to build a PC.
So is Alienware worth the price tag? There is no definite answer and it is mostly opinion and wether or not you want to take the time to build your own own PC. There are also some pre built PCs around the same price tag as Alienware that can handle gaming so there is also that option as well. Make sure you check the hardware because some expensive PCs still don’t perform well with gaming.
