    Alienware Releases The X51, A $699 Small Form Factor PC That Looks Like A Gaming Console

    The Alienware line just got a little brother, its Mac Mini if you will. The X51 is the gaming company’s smallest form factor desktop to date. But, since it’s an Alienware, it still packs plenty of gaming horsepower and customizable options. Read More

  • First Impressions Of The Alienware M11x R3

    Alienware launched the third generation of their ultraportible gaming rig a few weeks back and it just landed on my desk. As advertised it’s small, although not thin, notebook that screams of its Alienware pedigree. There are two glowing alien heads, loads of multicolor lights, and top of the line specs. It’s clear without even turning it on that this thing is serious about… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Alienware OptX 22-inch 1080p Monitor


    LCDs are cheap these days. Dell’s daily deal is the Alienware OptX 22-inch monitor for only $200. That’s $100 of list and features 2 ms response time, an 80k:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and a 4-port USB hub. Admittedly, it’s still a bit pricey for the smaller size and lack of LED, but at least the Alienware label will earn you a bit of cred at your next LAN party. Read More

  • Report: Dell Alienware M18x And M14x Notebooks To Be Announced Today


    The rumors over the last few months all pointed to new Alienware models. Then they appeared on Dell’s European site and were all but officially announced. Pocket-Lint now reports that Dell confirmed with them that the the M18x and M14x will be announced sometime today. Both will of course cost a bit more than their pedestrian Dell counterparts as they’re loaded with the latest… Read More

  • Alienware M18x Configurator Live On Dell Europe


    Wanna burn a few minutes. Jump over to Dell Europe and spec out the unannounced Alienware M18x gaming notebook. I got one up to £5,543.99, which included a nut-busting Core i7 Extreme CPU, dual 2GB AMD Radeon HD 6970M CrossfireX GPUs, and 32GB of RAM. Now where’s that Aol equipment request form… Read More

    Milk it! The already-full Alienware notebook line is soon getting a new big brother in the form of an 18-inch gaming monster. The M18x briefly appeared on Dell’s Canadian site and listed all the pertinent information including the pricing and specs.

  • Rumored Specs For The Alienware M11x R3 Pegs The Ultraportable as Ultrapowerful

    The Alienware M11x is a fun little beast. It’s touted as a full-fledge portable gaming system and the current generation fits that marketing label with a 1GB discrete NVIDIA GPU. But the model’s Core 2 Duo CPU is getting a little antiquated. Dell-Lab just posted what they claim are the preliminary specs for the next incarnation. Yeah, if these specs are the real deal, the M11x R3… Read More

  • Klipsch Speakers Round Out Alienware M17x's Super Specs

  • Alienware M11X On Sale For Black Friday

    Oh Alienware, how could you do this to me? My favorite Alienware sub-compact laptop (the M11x) comes out on sale just when my wife expects me to spend money on gifts for the family. That’s right, the 1GB Nividia driven 335M 15″ gaming laptop that Devin wasn’t a complete fan of, but that was before they fixed the video chipset. The M11x starts at a quite reasonable $599… Read More

  • Bigfoot To Bundle Its Killer 2100 High-Speed NIC In Alienware Computers

    I’ve expressed my opinion on, as I put it, this performance NIC nonsense. But it’d be silly to pretend that if you’re interested in the best performance possible, you shouldn’t lay out out a little extra to make sure every piece of your computer is optimized. Alienware knows people like doing that, and they’ve partnered Bigfoot to offer the Killer 2100 NIC in… Read More

  • 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. Well, no longer. Read More

  • 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. Well, the rumor rattling around the pipes today is that the M11x may be getting a refresh this summer, and… Read More

  • Review: Alienware M11x

  • Alienware M11x gallery and first impressions


    We’ll have a full review of Alienware’s pint-sized gaming machine, but in case you guys haven’t seen enough pictures of it (or there just wasn’t enough bokeh in those other sites’ shots), I’ve put together a nice little gallery for you. I’m happy to take more pictures too if you want close-ups of this or that. Read More

  • Alienware M11x autopsy photos

    The Alienware M11x is a fascinating modern notebook. May I say that it probably took “out-of-this-world technology” to pack so much power into a little kit? Get it? Because it’s an Alienware. You got? Yes, I know I’m dumb. John tells me that every day. Just click through for the photos, pal. Let’s get on with this. Read More

  • 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… 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
