Alienware M11x

I've been eagerly anticipating this laptop for the past few months with it's impressive specs and small package. I might have to hold up upgrading my MacBook and instead invest in this little Alienware.

Alienware aren't bad but a friend of mine had a alien laptop and he went through 3 gfx cards in 2 years. But he used it a ton for gaming so yeah.

People tell me you get more bang for your buck out of Ibuypower laptops than alienware. I wouldn't know though, never looked into it myself. I just hear a lot of nerds at my school saying it so it might be worth checking out.

i setup one of these for a client's son. the upgraded cpu is a MUST btw
great little machines for gaming at 720p, i don't like the feel of the keyboard though.
what i don't like, is after all the upgrades to make is respectable the price is still around 1k.

i ended up getting my m17x from his son who "downgraded" to the m11x

Thanks for the article Jose. Not a bad little machine, I'm just not sure I could get used to such s small screen though. I'm working with a little 14inch screen and I'd like to have just a little more.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was looking at that same laptop real hard right about the time it came out. Its a powerfull netbook replacement and honestly the main feature that had me wanting it was the backlit keyboard. I dont know why that feature isnt seen more.

Nope that's pretty much it. Give me a real keyboard, moniter, and mouse.

Sure they have, but why? Plan on going to a internet hot-spot at your local starbucks to pwn some noobs on Battle Field? Silly Billy..
