looks like it was a switch when they went to Dell. The branding stuff has gone out, they also used to have a "ghost" alien head on the packaging of the Tac X mouse wich is now gone....gotta cut expenssinge where you can at least the prices are fairly good
If it's any consolation, the manual was bound in plastic (fake leather). The cap isn't anything special either so you aren't really missing out. What matters is the machine itself.
Okay, now i know why alienware didn't give a alien hat again as gift. but, why they want to remove alienware brand and switch to dell?
Not sure why they stopped giving out the hat. If I guessed it would be the fact that they spend money putting it in every new order and no one ever wears it. I miss the nicely bound manual though.
You misunderstood what he meant when McEinstein said they went to Dell. He was referring to the fact that Alienware is now owned by Dell. They aren't going to stop using the Alienware Brandname
