So the 11.6-inch gaming notebook Alienware M11x is finally here! This is a very powerful beast for so tiny a size (4.5 pounds)!
It’s already available for preorder from 799 USD in the US and from 749 GBP in the UK (for other countries have a look at the official announcement) with the basic configuration of an Intel Pentium Dual Core SU4100, 2 GB RAM and 160 GB HD @5400 rpm (320 GB @7200 rpm in the UK). Going for an Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300, 4 GB RAM and 320 GB HD @7200 rpm is going to cost you 1024 USD (868 GBP in the UK). And of course, the Nvidia GeForce GT 335M 1 GB GDDR3 in all configurations.
The small gaming laptop has already been reviewed at Hardware Heaven and IGN Gear, and both are very impressed by the machine, that ran all the games thrown at it flawlessly at high settings, and battery life was almost 6 h of general use!
In my opinion it’s a great, great product. But I’m concerned about the ability of these CULV processors of running CPU-intensive games and scenarios, such as GTA4, Battlefield Bad Company 2, 25-man WOW raids and so, that maybe you would considering to do in thes ultraportable.
For more information, the forum members of Notebook Review have compiled a good amount of info about this small laptop in the Alienware M11x official thread.
