I want the paint job itself! I don't care so much for the case, just the paint job on a Lian Li. :eek: The specs are nice, but I think Alienware is cheap on it, but still quite nice none of the less...

I should make it illegal to void contests and sweepstakes in Florida. I'd get the Dark Side one if I could....

Maybe I'll see if some relatives will enter for me <.<

I'm actually pretty sure that they ARE putting tem up for mass sale. The sweepstakes is just for one of them...

If/when they do make them for sale will they be really pricey? I know Alienware computers in general are fairly expensive, but I am just wondering being that it's probably limited edition.

Alienware's computers are always more expensive then their custom built equals.

Bah, sell me the case, I'll put what I want inside.

*Enters contest*

What? It's worth a try.

do they do a laptop version, so ican show it off more? :)

Bah! Its soooooo annoying when all these online competitions and cashback offers are all US only. Don't people realise the internet is an international medium????

I know it would be a nightmare to comply with all international regulations... but surely they only have to comply with local ones, and say that anyone from another country who wins has to pay shipping?

Grrr!! :mad:

Uhhuh... But it's a US company. There are lots of online competitions going on in other countries as well - only for the citizens of those countries. For some reason people sometimes think that US companies should serve all the people on Earth, but nobody wonders when, for example, an Italian company doesn't...

Perhaps we have better competitions? <_<

Thats because the majority of content on the web is US based.
I know that practically it is probably impossible for US companies to run competitions for all countries... but because they are in english and they often don't highlight that their offers/adds are US only it leads to annoyance for me.

If a page was in italian or another language i'd probably assume it was only valid for italians. But when i see ads or shop items or competitions in english i assume they relate to me... and its annoying to find that they dont. (and usually only from the small print).

I'm sure that if you kept getting UK only shops and offers then you would get annoyed by it too, but you are probably less likely to, as they are much more limited in number and mainly focused on uk sites (of which there are fewer).

Sorry, rant over. :(
