ALIENWARE UNVEILS SCORCHING SLI-POWERED MOBILE SYSTEMS AND ANNOUNCES
UPCOMING SPECIAL-EDITION SYSTEMS

New 17" and 19" Mobile Systems Packed with Dual NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GPUs
while Upcoming Desktop and Notebook Feature Exclusive Superman Chassis
Designs

MIAMI - May 9th, 2006 - Alienware -- the leading manufacturer of
high-performance desktop, notebook, media center, server and professional
systems -- has introduced two new ultra-powerful mobile systems loaded with
dual NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900
GPUs: the 17" Aurora m9700 and the 19" Aurora mALX. As Alienware's most
powerful desktop replacements to date, the Aurora m9700 and Aurora mALX
provide up to twice the graphics performance of single-GPU mobile systems
for a blistering gaming experience, and are the first mobile systems to
feature groundbreaking True MIMO wireless technology from Airgo Networks for
faster, more reliable Wi-Fi performance over greater distances.

The Aurora m9700 is the industry's first and only 17" mobile system to offer
the powerful dual-graphics capabilities of NVIDIA SLI technology. The
cutting-edge mobile desktop also provides up to 240GB of storage thanks to
dual SATA hard drives in RAID configurations, and includes AMD Turion 64
processors to enable simultaneous 32-bit and 64-bit computing and enhanced
wireless compatibility.

With blazing dual GeForce Go 7900 GTX GPUs, the Aurora mALX delivers the
ultimate mobile solution for playing games in immersive, cinematic detail on
an expansive 19" wide-screen LCD. Owners of the Aurora mALX are treated to
a truly first-class experience that includes receiving exclusive ALX extras
such as an Alienware backpack, award-winning Alienware Ozma 7 headphones, a
personalized nameplate and more.

In addition to the company's two new mobile systems, Alienware is also
preparing to release a limited-edition Superman desktop and notebook
featuring stunning chassis designs of the Man of Steel. Each desktop,
showcasing exclusive artwork designed by a DC Comics artist, and notebook is
individually-numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity and
special Superman desktop skin.

"With today's announcement, Alienware has completely eliminated the typical
performance gap between mobile and desktop systems with the introduction of
our latest mobile systems," said Mark Vena, Vice President of Marketing for
Alienware. "The Aurora m9700 represents an industry first as the initial
17" SLI mobile system while the Aurora mALX delivers the same type of
luxurious experience Alienware's ALX desktops are praised for, giving
customers two incredibly powerful and exciting new mobile options."

"After transforming the graphics landscape on desktop systems, NVIDIA SLI
technology has now made the leap to mobile systems like the Aurora m9700 and
Aurora mALX,"
Jeff Fisher, Senior Vice President of the GPU Business at NVIDIA. "Equipped
with dual NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 Series GPUs with SLI technology,
Alienware's new systems unleash a new level of graphics performance for
mobile gamers."
With today's announcement, Alienware is among the first PC manufacturers to
begin offering Airgo True MIMO wireless technology across its entire
notebook product line portfolio providing wired-like network performance
(speeds up to 240Mpbs) with range up to twice what typical 802.11b/g
wireless networks provide. Airgo True MIMO technology is ideal for bandwidth
intensive applications such as gaming, VoIP or video streaming in large
homes, apartments and small businesses and also offers the benefits of
backward compatibility with existing 802.11b/g networks and routers. This
technology will be offered by Alienware in late June 2006.
