It seems Lucas is getting into everything with his Star Wars licensing and this time, he's got Alienware to show off. Alienware's announced the first ever officially licensed Star Wars PC complete with cases for both Light and Dark side. Geek out factor is off the charts here. The cases feature Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi-Wan and others depending on the case style you choose. If only they had a Jar Jar styled case. Then I'd be all over that.. with a sledgehammer.

"Star Wars indisputably ranks as one of the most popular movie franchises of all time, yet had never been featured on a PC, so Alienware worked with Star Wars to fill that void," said Robert Lusk, vice president of sales and marketing for Alienware. "The result of this collaboration, the Aurora: Star Wars Edition offers an irresistible mix of both visual appeal and power that is sure to make an unforgettable impression."
"Prepare for the jump to hyper-speed -- the Aurora: Star Wars Edition PC comes equipped with the same intergalactic AMD64 technology that provided the force behind the Force in Star Wars: Episode III," said John Morris, Marketing Manager, AMD. "Alienware, AMD, and Star Wars have formed a rebel alliance to provide the ultimate high-performance PC for the Star Wars fan."
