No, this has only been on offer for a few days.

You might be thinking of a previous offer, which was a single really nice computer, rather than the 30 Computers now being given away.

Yep, you're right, $4000 (even in AU currency) seems a bit overpriced according to raw value of the components, but Alienware is normally like that for all their pre-made systems.

It's a bit like Nike: you pay some for the brand, you pay some more for the looks, and then you pay a bit more coz they can get away with it.
