Athlone, Ireland — 30th January 2007 – Alienware® the leading manufacturer of high-performance desktop, notebook and professional systems has unleashed the much-anticipated new Windows Vista operating system on Alienware's notebook and desktop lineup. Cutting-edge Windows Vista features such as the graphics architecture DirectX 10 and the visually-arresting Windows Aero interface combine with the next-generation graphics firepower and advanced memory of Alienware systems to provide a richer and more enriching Windows Vista experience than standard PCs in gaming, multimedia, digital content management and scores of other performance-intensive applications.

“The legendary performance attributes of the Alienware notebook and desktop portfolio are the perfect complement to the numerous features that Windows Vista offers,” said

Through Windows Aero, users can experience stunning visuals such as translucent windows, animations, a 3D perspective and more. In addition, Windows Vista makes it much easier to view, find and organise files, keep personal devices and information in sync and take full advantage of the incredible multitasking potential delivered by Alienware systems with multi-core processing power.
