ALIENWARE INTRODUCES POWERFUL NEW LINE OF RACK SERVERS

Alienware's Hivemind Rack Servers Powered by Intel(r) Xeon(tm)
Processors Deliver High-Performance, Cost-Effective Solutions for
Growing Businesses
MIAMI, FL - July 28, 2005 - Alienware(r), a leading manufacturer of
high-performance desktop, notebook, media center, and professional
systems, announced the availability of a brand new line of single and
dual-processor rack servers that provide companies with powerful, yet
affordable solutions for the growing demands of modern business. Easy
to manage and maintain, Alienware's new HivemindTM series of servers
offer performance, scalability, reliability and security.

From the dual-processor-powered Hivemind 2525 and Hivemind 1525 to the
budget-friendly Hivemind 1220, Alienware rack servers are equipped to
handle the critical business demands of customer resource management and
data warehouse applications to messaging and web hosting. Hivemind rack
servers feature up to two high-performance 64-bit Intel(r) Xeon(tm)
processors that allow you to run both 32-bit and 64-bit applications at
maximum performance on the same platform.

Providing flexible storage capabilities with plenty of room for
expansion, Hivemind rack servers support up to 2.4TB of SATA or 1.8TB of
SCSI hard drive storage. Hivemind servers also allow you to increase
server memory as your application demands increase, supporting up to
12GB of ECC DDR-2 memory. In addition, costly, unscheduled downtime is
not a concern thanks to memory mirroring and redundant network interface
controllers that help to keep your systems running and your data
protected.

"In response to the increasing number of companies that are relying on
Alienware's award-winning desktops and notebooks for their pressing
business needs, Alienware has developed the next-generation line of
Hivemind rack servers to meet additional demands for government and
corporate customers," said Nelson Gonzalez, Chief Executive Officer at
Alienware. "In a business world that can be highly volatile,
Alienware's Hivemind servers add a critical measure of reliability and
performance for everything from data warehouse applications to messaging
at a great value."

"Built on a foundation of high performance and reliability and augmented
with innovations such as 64-bit computing and Intel Hyper-Threading
technology, Intel Xeon processors are the preferred platform for
servers, and are a natural fit for Alienware's impressive new Hivemind
rack servers," said Phil Brace, general manager of server platform
marketing for Intel's Digital Enterprise Group. "Working together,
Alienware and Intel have produced some of the PC industry's top systems
in recent years, and now that tradition has extended to servers."

Initially the Hivemind series of servers will be available in the US
only and will be launched in Europe shortly.

Is it me, or is Alienware getting a tad money-hungry; or is it their forcasted sales hasn't been reached for last quarter? I can just imagine what they want for their servers, given their desktops are for "well-off" people. Maybe I'm being a little arbitrary, but I really don't think so.
