• 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • Alienware M11x autopsy photos

  • 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
