i was thinking of buying the Alienware M11x bud 1,3 ghz isint that a bit low to do anything unless it is over clocked ? and if i over clock doesn't that destroy the warranty?

i want to use this computer to be mobile, cool looking and I am going to use this for for gaming, school, internet browsing and maybe some little video/photo editing.

OC'ng will void the warranty.
1.3Ghz with a GT 325M will give you medium-low gaming performance

Actually, the M11x can be overclocked to 1.7Ghz without voiding the warranty, as it comes from the factory with the ability to do so. It is really a mickey-mouse overclock, though. More-or-less taking a true 1.7Ghz CPU and underclocking it so it can be sold as overclockable - all marketing from Dell.

If you get it, do the CPU upgrade option with 3MB cache, 4GB RAM Upgrade, w/ a 7200rpm hdd (unless you choose to pay another $350.00 for the SSD option). It is much better than the other optional CPU. It supports Intel's virtualization technology as well a few other features the 2MB cache CPU version doesn't. In addition to being a bit faster.

But yep, that machine is kinda weak for gaming. It is however, a slick little machine, as I almost got one myself.
