What does Alienware have planned for E3 2013?

Microsoft and Sony both have plans to hold major press conferences in Los Angeles on June 10th, the day before E3 2013 opens its doors. Now it looks like Dell's PC gaming division Alienware will have its own event that will be held in LA on the same day to announce some major news of its own.

Neowin received an invite to the Alienware event, which will be held in a section of downtown LA that evening. Alienware listed a number of partners who will be a part of the the event, including Intel, NVIDIA and several current and upcoming PC games.

It's unclear if Alienware will launch an all new PC design or if this will just be a refresh of its current lineup. The division's last all new product was the X51 desktop that was first launched over a year ago; Alienware's last major refresh of its gaming PC notebooks also happened over a year ago.

Alienware did surprise many people in April when it announced the X51 could have the Linux-based Ubuntu OS installed as an option in addition to Windows 7 or 8; the Ubuntu version comes with supported graphics drivers from NVIDIA.
