Alienware announced the availability of the new Alienware Aurora: Star Wars Edition, the first-ever officially licensed STAR WARS PC. Aurora: Star Wars Edition systems are based on AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 processors and packed with exclusive STAR WARS content such as desktop skins, fan club membership and movie soundtrack samples. The systems are available in two versions, Dark Side and Light Side, which feature breathtaking STAR WARS artwork on the cases.
The Dark Side version features a case design that captures the imposing presence of Darth Vader and the rest of the evil Imperial forces in lifelike detail. Showcasing an equally impressive case design, the Light Side system beautifully displays the vivid images of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Luke Skywalker and the other heroic figures of the STAR WARS galaxy in full action. The Light Side system further enhances the STAR WARS experience by including a highly unique Jedi wallpaper and desktop skin, while the Dark Side system counters with an exclusive Imperial wallpaper and desktop skin that deliver the unmistakable look and feel of the Dark Side.
Both versions of the Aurora: Star Wars Edition come bundled with numerous exclusive items such as free membership to the official online STAR WARS fan club, Hyperspace, and Sony Star Wars Video Journey samples, which include sample music from the movie soundtrack.
