Alienware Experience due
Gaming PC maker Alienware on Wednesday said it would open its first store at the Micro Center near New York City. To be called The Alienware Experience, the store will be a try-only boutique like Dell's few locations and give visitors the chance to experience Alienware's gaming hardware firsthand, albeit without the option of buying systems in-store. The first 500 visitors will get special Alienware T-shirts, gift bags and 2GB USB drives. Those who participate in the LAN games will also have at winning extra prizes including PC games, speakers, keyboards, mice and headphones.
On display will be some of Alienware's latest gaming PCs, including the M17x, the regular M17, and Area-51 m15x notebooks as well as the Area-51 X58 desktop. The Alienware Experience will open at 11:30am Eastern time on Saturday, July 25th. [via PCLaunches]
