Alienware M11x Revealed Elite Gaming Brand Releases 11-inch Ultraportable Gaming Notebook, HD capable
that packs a serious bunch. Alienware is billing the 11-inch M11X
notebook as the most powerful 11-inch gaming laptop in the universe .
Alienware is making some bold claims for the impressive little notebook.
For processors, Alienware chose a low-power Core 2 Duo chip rather than
the beefier Core i5 or i7 processors. The notebook will be able to
switch between the Intel GMA graphics and the N
VIDIA GeForce GTS 335M card (with 1GB of VRAM), for the sake of battery
life. The M11x will have a 6.5-hour battery life while running the GMA
graphics, and only 2 hours while intense gaming with the NVIDIA card.
The switchable graphics apparently can be done while the OS is running,
no need to reboot your computer, which'll be a nice touch. Alienware
didn't give mention of how much RAM, or the other specs for the machine
are – but they did give us some benchmarking scores. On 3DMark,
the M11x apparently got in the 6000-7000 range, and Alienware reports
that the notebook can easily get 50 fps in Crysis and 30 fps in Modern
Warfare 2 on high settings.
For connectivity, the M11x will have more ports than you could ever want
– including three USB ports, an HDMI port, a DisplayPort, mini
FireWire, a VGA port and even a SIM card slot for 3G connectivity. Yeah,
Alienware has got you covered.
No explicit word on pricing, but Alienware told press on hand at CES
that it will be sold for less than $1,000 with specs maxed . For
those interested, Alienware promised the device will be shipping within
the next 30 days. Those who tried it seemed genuinely impressed with the
computer, and one tech blog called it a gaming netbook .
