Would you call it C3-"PC"-O?

If your obsession with all things Star Wars has just enough room for one more frivolous but highly coveted purchase (the Jar-Jar Binks toilet brush just didn't satisfy your cravings), Alienware's about to make your midichlorians happy: the company will be releasing two Star Wars themed computers -- one for the light side of the force, and one for the dark. The PCs will come loaded with Star Wars movie soundtracks, wallpapers, and game demos.

But why stop there? Why not some other sci-fi inspired computers:

  • Classic Star Trek PCs: made of cardboard with useless flashing lights.
  • The Matrix PC: To start, Choose the red or blue button.
  • The Day the Earth Stood Still PC: Clearly a Windows Machine
