Yes they do. My understanding is that they had some growing pains but that their customer service is generally quite good. Most people love their alienware systems.
And now that i've settled on a smaller screen size I might not get an alienware after all. It's too bad because the alienware notebooks are oh so sexy Unfortunately their 14" model doesn't suit my needs as it uses integrated graphics . I'm actually pretty amazed that they even produce a machine with integrated graphics =/
Right now the best thing i've seen is an Asus 8Js. It's based on Core 2 Duo, has a 14" screen, and geforce go 7700, which seems to be the best graphics card you can get in a sub-17" notebook. A card of that class is even more rare in a 14", so I think that's what I'll do. It also weighs in at only 4.5lbs.
