ALIENWARE EXTENDS ITS AWARD-WINNING PRODUCT OFFERINGS TO THE CREATIVE/PROFESSIONAL, CORPORATE AND GOVERNMENT MARKETS
MIAMI, FL (July 20, 2004) — Alienware, the leading manufacturer of high-performance desktop, notebook, and professional systems, announced the availability of a wide variety of PC products aimed at the creative professional, small and mid-sized business, and government markets.
With an impeccable reputation for quality, customization, and innovative technology, many public and private organizations have rallied around Alienware’s entry into these segments of the computer market. Among them are the Department of Defense; the United States Army, Navy and Air Force Military Branches; the National Geo-Spatial Intelligence Agency; the NYPD Counterterrorism Taskforce; The Boeing Company; Lockheed Martin Corporation; Northrop Grumman Corporation; and Sandia National Laboratory. Alienware’s successful entry into these major markets leverages the company’s technical innovation, manufacturing quality, and award-winning customer support that have made it the leading manufacturer of high-performance PCs.
"Within the gaming computer industry, Alienware has proven time and time again its ability to produce computer systems with the highest performance and quality," said Carl Sittig, Microsoft OEM General Manager. "The launch of these new corporate related products reflects the company’s intent to do the same in the professional, corporate and government arenas. Alienware, with its proven successful business model, is in a prime position to capitalize on this burgeoning growth opportunity."
According to Gartner, a top computer consulting group, 2004 should be the first in an annual pickup of growth in computer hardware. Gartner also foresees a rapid shift to secure, high-speed wireless networks and a more mobile work force, which will result in an increase of notebook rather than desktop PC purchases. With Alienware’s professional line of mobile workstations and notebooks, it is poised to capture a significant portion of this demand.
"Alienware has consistently demonstrated that with a focus on excellence, innovation and best-in-class service, it is successful at responding to market demand by delivering superior computer products,” said Frank Azor, senior vice president, Alienware Worldwide Product Group. “We're excited about our entrance into the professional, corporate and government markets with quality products that we are confident will meet the performance and reliability requirements of our customers."
