Alienware fans who are interested in getting their hands on a new prebuilt from parent company Dell might be out of luck depending on the state they’re in. As noted in practically every listing, Dell cannot ship the majority of its Alienware options to select states due to power consumption regulations that have been adopted by those areas. The states that are affected include California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington. Only two Alienware configurations appear to comply with CEC power consumption regulations and can be shipped to all states: the Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 gaming desktop (AMD Ryzen 5 5600X with AMD Radeon RX 5600) and Aurora R12 gaming desktop (Intel Core i5-11400F with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER). These models cost $1,289.99 and $1,179.99, respectively.
