Alienware's Limited-Edition Superman Systems Take Flight.

Limited-edition, individually-numbered Superman desktop and notebook systems from Alienware are now available. Alienware contracted The Skins Factory to conceive and create a specially-designed Superman desktop theme that radically transforms the users' Windows Media Player, icons, wallpaper and Windows XP's look and feel.

Drawing on years of fandom here at TSF, our creative team designed a theme that is true to spirit of the 'World's Greatest Superhero'.

Scouring the Superman mythos, our team of 'supermen' chose the most popular symbols of the classic Superman like Clark's glasses, x-ray vision FX, kryptonite, the famous Daily Planet logo and even the Kent family farm's mailbox. The wallpaper shows a young Kal-El headed toward Earth as the planet Krypton's shatters in the background.

The theme is only available when you purchase an Alienware Area-51 Superman Returns Edition Notebook or the Area-51 Superman Edition Desktop.
