    Alienware officially updates the M11x

    When we ran our review of the Alienware M11x a few months back, there were a couple of things that really didn't sit well with us. They had decided on the older Nvidia chipset (which forced you to basically shut everything down to change from discrete to active video) and you were somewhat limited in what CPU options were available.

    CrunchRumor: Alienware M11x to get updated Nvidia chipset?

    One question that has come up ever since the M11x was released was why didn’t Alienware use the Nvidia Optimus chipset. The chipset that Alienware did use makes switching between the integrated and discreet graphics rather awkward and jarring, and a less then ideal user experience.

    Review: Alienware Aurora ALX

    Short version: The Aurora ALX is quite possibly the fastest computer I've ever used. It is in a word, amazing. The water cooling, thermally reactive venting system, and lighting combine to make a system that runs great, looks amazing, and has some innovative features that make you go "duh. why didn't I think of that?" Of course performance has its price, and you will have to pay a premium price… Read More

    The Alienware M11x netbook gets priced, dated and detailed

    The Alienware M11x is an odd duck. The company calls it a netbook, but it's packing a Core 2 Duo CPU and 1GB NVIDIA GT 335M GPU. Even the 720p-capable 11.6-inch screen doesn't exactly screen netbook. Then there is the target $899 price that just knocks it the hell out of the netbook realm. So, yeah, let's just call the M11x what it is: an ultra-portable. Read More
