I personally don't really care for it, it costs too much, the speakers look horrendous and the tripod makes it look like it would get up in the middle of the night and crawl around (like a spider of course).

How much for that, and where can I buy it?!


(I'm sold!)

Alienware on the other hand caters to those gamers that have wads of cash to blow. We didn't have pricing on the curved display, but let's just say we don't expect it to come cheap. $3000, $4000, more, less? Well, "less" is probably not correct, but the others all seem feasible. Native resolution is 2880x900 (twice that of your standard 19" widescreen displays), and the color and image quality is very good. Somewhat surprising to us is that the display does not use LCD technology, so it's actually quite a bit deeper than you might think looking at the above image. The display shell extends back around a foot. So how exactly do you project a 2880x900 image onto an approximately three foot wide curved display without getting massive distortion at the outer portion of the display? If you're thinking CRT technology, don't feel bad - that was our initial guess as we were looking at the display. In fact, Alienware is using DLP technology with three separate DLP chips to project a clear, distortion-free image
