Software and Warranty
As a gaming rig, the Alpha employs a light touch when it comes to software. Alienware staples such as the diagnostics-checking Alien Autopsy and Respawn is there for creating backups of important game files.
The Alpha only has three third-party apps installed: Flipboard, Steam and Battle.net, a hub that routes games to game developer Blizzard's most popular games including World of Warcraft and Starcraft II.
The Alienware Alpha comes with a one-year limited hardware warranty.
