Earlier this week The Wall Street Journal reported how Dell will drop their XPS line of gaming PCs in favor of Alienware products. Well, apparently that's not true, as Dell officially denied this, claiming that both brands will continue to co-exist.
What they do plan is to "invest like crazy in product development, design and engineering" in order to make Alienware a premier gaming brand. Knowing that Alienware already has a firm fan base, building on its success shouldn't be too hard.
However, by no means is Dell planning on dropping XPS, because its XPS line of products evolved beyond just gaming rigs, and its heritage is something that Dell also plans to build on.
