I'll admit, building your own is great fun and much more cost effective, but i've always wanted to own an Alienware some day, when I have more money than brains maybe (and thats alot of money), but still, no longer if this is true ^^^
I guess someday Voodoo will have my money

Uhm that's right. The sproduct stays the same.

Although i will always try to build my own comp, it's quite sad to know that Alienware is now bought by Dell.

It's just Dell's way to sell AMD through another name. :P

i. don't. care.

DELL is a virus. its against all that i stand for (quality components, american jobs, our lord in heaven) Michael Dell deserves to be mobbed by everyone whos ever talked to an Indian tech support agent, and locked in the same jail cell as the "dude your getting a dell" guy. Even if they don't change alienware a single bit (which i highly doubt) it gives dell $ to screw over more naive old ppl with. i won't ever by a dell or anything owned by them.

Actually there is a bill that will come before congress at the end of 2006. If passed it will create a US Federal Program called the Electronic Waste Recycling Program.

Basically there will be a fee added to all electronics paid by the Consumer at time of purchase. This fee will go to "Recycling Plants as well as Transporters and Collecters. INstead of simply throwing your electronics away, there will be a special place to deposit it. Then the electronic waste will be shipped off to a recycling station where it will be stripped down and recycled. I won't go into the recycling process, but it's really intensive and most of the scraps can be resold for other products.

Currently California and Maine have this program.

Here is california & maines fees for TV's and Monitors:
Greater than 4 inches and less than 15 inches = $6
Equal to or greater than 15 inches and less than 35 inches = $8
35 inches and larger = $10
