I think stupid, lame and "milking it" instantly spring to mind when one looks at that... who with any ounce of respect for himself would buy that.  The originals were very good yes, however this is going a little too far.

Whooa, those are... unsightly.
I'm not too into the whole custom cases thing. I like my old gray and, uh, dark gray just fine.

And yeah, that's just milking it, not that they haven't been for years with all the toys and such.

Quite stupid.

is it just an alienware system with star wars graphics?
it would be kind of cool if it came pre-loaded with star wars themes for windows, and maybe a star wars game or two.

That's immeasurably cool, but I'd be rather impressed to see a Millenium Falcon PC, sort of like the Millenium Falcon Xbox:

I'm kind of embarrassed I have an alienware now. :-[

The idea of customization's kind of cool... but this is a little bit too commercial for my taste.

Have they made Star Wars Toilet Paper yet? How about death star shaped doilies? I almost considered buying the r2d2 cereal bowl on the back of the crispix box. I don't actually own any star wars memorabilia... I do enjoy the movies though. Even Episode I (well, not THAT much). I hope they don't screw up the TV show too bad.

Those are kinda like that really popular cool guy in highschool that everyone knows is gay, but just doesn't say anything so they can go to his cool parties at daddies house.

Personally, I think it's stupid but, if people will buy it, you can't blame it for selling it.
However, I saw one of the cell companies, Cingular or ATT, selling Star Wars themed cell phones.
I'd call that stupid.

I could never see paying for non custom custom paint jobs.  Thats kind of confusing.  Now a truly custom paint job, that would be great, but I will stick to my black case with blue lights thank you very much.
