Wednesday, 25 March 2009 11:30 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Alienware is to close both of its manufacturing plants, based in Miami and Ireland

Production will be moved to parent company Dell’s facilities.

The news comes from an internal memo, cited in this ExtremeTech report.

Alienware spokeswoman Winnie Wong has apparently confirmed the memo as authentic, but would not say how many employees would be affected.

The memo said that the changes, including the layoffs, would be completed by the end of Dell’s third fiscal quarter, which ends October 31.

More through there.
