About Alienware

Aliens have landed in Florida and they're spreading! Relax, they come in peace. Based in Miami, Alienware caters to consumer video game enthusiasts in the market for high-performance gaming PCs with striking case designs. Sporting names like Area-51 and Aurora, the company's colorfully appointed systems utilize processors, video cards, and storage components optimized for gaming applications. Its PC's are further differentiated by customized cases, upgraded power supplies, and multiple cooling fans. The company has branch facilities in Australia, Costa Rica, and Ireland. Alienware is a subsidiary of  Dell.

Like its parent company, Alienware (acquired in 2006) built its fortunes selling directly to customers. However, as Dell has expanded its marketing efforts with channel sales, Alienware has moved into the retail space. Dell has a partnership with Best Buy to sell Alienware models in their stores. As time goes by, Alienware is becoming more of a brand within the Dell product line, rather than an autonomous subsidiary.

Suppliers to Alienware include Advanced Micro Devices, Intel, Microsoft, graphics chip maker NVIDIA, and disk drive manufacturer Seagate Technology.

Some of Alienware's competitors were bought by bigger companies, as well. Voodoo Computers was purchased by Hewlett-Packard, while ABS Computer Technologies became a subsidiary of Newegg.

Productive, intelligent, very tech related, co workers were amazing
Sales and Technical Support, Decatur, IN - September 8, 2014
You got to make your own hours, how amazing is that? The pay was great though you were considered a free lancer, I learned a lot more about computers, and what people thought about certain brands. The customers could be a pain sometimes and of course you got the occasional troll, but you were happy for the nice people. The co-workers were always nice, friendly, understanding of situations if one happened to arise, and just all around amazing. The hardest part of the job was simply getting the troll calls who had no interest in buying anything, or didnt want help but just waste time. The most enjoyable part of the job was doing what I love, learning, and growing as a person and experience with the type gaming computer developer in the world.
