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, and then goes up depending on the additional goodies you want to add (like that that Alienware branded backpack). Now how to find $599 without telling the wife.
