I like the design, specially the keyboard, i don't think it has enough graphic power though, still is a nice gaming laptop
Alienware releases an updated M11x gaming laptop.
Alienware got an itchy trigger finger and fired off its new Alienware M11x a week before the Electronic Entertainment Expo starts. The pint-sized gaming laptop received a number of upgrades that make it an even better frame rate generator. Fully upgraded, the 11-inch, 4.5-pound beast comes with an Intel Core i7 640UM CPU, the Nvidia GeForce GT 335M with Optimus technology, and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. Prices start at $799 with an Intel Core 2 CPU and work their way up from $949 if you outfit the laptop with a Core i5 or Core i7 CPU.
The previous generation M11x came with hybrid graphics, but it was released just as Nvidia debuted its Optimus technology--an automatic hybrid graphics switching solution. Hybrid graphics makes use of both the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator and the Nvidia GeForce GT 335M to provide the best of both worlds--gaming performance and long battery life. Before Optimus, hybrid graphics solutions required the user to manually change a setting to switch video cards.
Alienware claims that battery life should be over seven hours under typical usage. Gaming and more taxing uses will, of course, cut those hours down.
Aside from an internal refresh, the M11x's exterior also got a makeover. The laptop will come in stealth black or lunar shadow color options, and the case will have a slightly rubberized feel.
Other M11x features include dual-headphone jacks, a gamer-styled keyboard, and a laser engraved nameplate.
Alienware should have immediate availability of the new M11x.
hahaha, I knew their asses at Alienware was gonna have to do some updating on the processor front w/ that M11x model--especially w/ all the laptops that have been going to i3/i5/i7 series of chips. That's what was really holding a lot of people back from getting (among a some other things). Quite frankly, they should of done that from the get-go because that sure as hell is gonna blow for all those people that early-adopted buying the first line of them. I mean, who wants to spend that much on a supposed top-of-the-line 'advanced' gaming laptop when it didn't even have the latest processor chipset?
Playing Xbox One games on somebody else's console will also require a check-in every hour. Full Story
