I'm looking for a very small sub-13 inch laptop for gaming and I have looked at the m11x. It's very compact but only has a 1.7 GHz i7 as "top of the line". Are there any sub 13 laptops that have ones with a higher tdp and higher frequency?
Nope. Something that compact has to make due with less due to size constraints.
However, my friend has the laptop. No gaming on maxed out graphics in Crysis, but gaming itself is doable on her. Don't scoff at 1.7 GHz, she'll run everything else fine. Its significantly faster than my C2D 12" laptop with a 2.0 GHz processor, and my laptop does everything but gaming fine (due to integrated graphics).
