Why do people buy alienware? - Page 8

post #71 of 107
I love these threads.

Come on guys. We all know there are aliens inside those humans. Who doesn't want a PC built by an Alien? (me)

Because not everyone has equal knowledge or time to make a custom PC, and also they get a fully functioning PC with great warranty.

If it's a laptop, pretty much everyone gets them pre-built. Desktops on the other hand, some people just don't want to hassle. I can totally respect someone not wanting to fiddle with something all the time when it isn't really their thing. I know many gamers that love reading about high performance hardware but don't want to bother opening their case. It doesn't make them ignorant, it just means they have interests elsewhere.

+1 for this. Mostly every one I know builds rigs and the friends(yes, I said friends I really do have some.) that don't know how to build rigs they ask me or some els that we hang out with. Alienware is a load of crap.

The info is not hard to find I think many people are too lazy to understand how to build a rig. If your not OCing then no need to worry about high end parts. Building a rig is simple and easy to do, before coming here I build 2 crappy rigs before having one I was proud of a rig.
