|Alienware said Tuesday that it instead of selling users a stylish PC, it will sell users merely a stylish case, and for a whole lot less.
Priced at $399, the Alienware P2 ATX-style case or chassis will be sold as a barebones kit, containing a 700-watt power supply and the company's standard Astral Blue lighting. Available chassis colors include Saucer Silver and Space Black.
The offer is just for a limited time, Alienware said.
In addition to its renowned design, the barebones chassis is packed with user-friendly features such as tool-less entry, easy-access front-side I/O ports and is designed for optimal airflow, Alienware said. A 30-day warranty is free with each.
"After listening closely to their feedback, we are giving our customers the flexibility of owning the sleek and stylish Alienware desktop chassis either separately or as part of a complete Alienware desktop system, ensuring that the needs of all are met," said Marc Diana, desktop product marketing manager for Alienware, in a statement. "Alienware's award-winning style has built up a legion of fans who appreciate bold, eye-catching case designs that are a stark contrast to the uninspiring industry norm."
