Alienware desktop, once considered the king of desktop computers, is finally coming to a close.
The Alienware Elite desktop PC, which is now a relic of the 1980s, had a lot of fans when it first debuted.
In fact, the Elite was the only desktop computer available that was compatible with a mouse.
That meant you could control the display using a standard mouse, a feature that was still commonplace at the time.
But with the launch of the Elite Xtreme Edition in 2017, Alienware has completely abandoned that concept, announcing that the Elite is no longer compatible with mice.
Instead, you’ll need a keyboard, a touchpad, or both.
This isn’t a bad decision for a company that once boasted of offering the most advanced desktop PCs on the market, but it’s not a great one for a brand that’s been criticized for its lackluster gaming performance.
While we’re still getting our hands on the Elite Elite Xtra Edition, Alienis latest announcement doesn’t spell the end for the mouse-less Elite series.
The company says it will continue to support mouse-equipped Elite PCs through 2019.
If you want to try out the mouseless Elite, you can pre-order a copy of Alienware’s new desktop PC.
