Dell says it won't acquire Alienware

Posted on Wednesday, March 15 2006 @ 22:02 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
It has been rumoured for about a week now that Dell may acquire Alienware but a spokesman for Dell says the information wasn't reliable.

He even has a rant on the source of the information, which is the CEO of Voodoo PC:
Questioning the accuracy of the information, Paul McKeon, Dell Australia and New Zealand spokesman, said the original source--Voodoo PC--is unreliable since the company is an Alienware competitor.

"I'd suggest you take that speculation with a grain of salt given the origin stated in the blog (Alienware's competitor)--you can never be sure what the motivation is," McKeon told ZDNet Australia via e-mail.

He also questioned the reasons behind such an acquisition, stating that Dell has the potential to be seen as a "cool" company and is more than capable of building viable gaming machines without Alienware's help.
