Alienware kicked off in South Africa at rAge 2010, amidst a frenzy of excitement and anticipation. The launch was the result of persistent demand from local gamers for the brand to be made locally available in order to avoid having to import the product. The arrival of this brand has changed the face of the gaming industry in South Africa, with the availability of both gaming laptops and desktops.
This is the third year that Alienware will be present at rAge and, once again, it promises not to disappoint. Dell will be launching an Alienware online store specifically for the South African community.
Products available include The Alienware M14x, M17x and M18x, X51 desktops and peripherals. The different specifications and options will be available on www.alienware.co.za. The website will be live on 5th October just in time for rAge.
