Alienware's M11x Gets $799 Price

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 40 comments

Earlier this month, Alienware announced a 'nearly netbook' packing Nvidia GT335M. The company promised we'd see a sub-$1,000 pricetag when the M11x shipped in spring and boy, did they deliver.

A little source code detective work shows that the M11x will be priced at $799. An Engadget tipster points out that, although the M11x microsite offers no details on price, the source code contains the following morsel of information:

"The Alienware M11x, with over 6.5 hours of battery life and weighing under 4.5 lbs. will start at an amazing $799!  Leave it to the folks at Alienware to enable truly mobile performance gaming at an affordable price."

The display is a little small (11.6-inches) but it packs enough punch to be well equipped for gaming on an external display with VGA, HDMI and DisplayPort options.

Any takers?

    Gopherboy6956You didn't have to view source code to see that, if you entered the sweepstakes on the site, it told you that in plain English after you registered.


    Unfortunately, not everyone can enter the sweepstakes. It is America-only.

    All they need to do now is make a tablet version of this with multitouch for $1200, and a version with a 13 or 14" screen for $1400 and I'd be sold.

    Quote:
    The 3D performance of the GT335M should be somewhere between the GT 240M and the GTS 250M (with DDR3). Therefore, the GPU should be fast enough to display demanding games (like Modern Warfare 2 or Need for Speed Shift) in medium Details fluently (paired with a powerful CPU). Older or less demanding games like Left 4 Dead should run in high details fluently.



    Seems like a decent buy.

    And then bolt on dual 5850M's.

    Tom's, fix your "Add URL" feature.

    There is no way the GT335M is in the package at $799. I was already suspecting a base config with integrated graphics or a weaker card at $999... now it's a sure thing.

    Basically it's got a GT240 with DDR3. I'd rather get a laptop with the Radeon 5700 (mobility 5800).

    I'm guessing we'll have to keep it in the freezer while operating! Or six fans all around it at once.

    If it has a 6.5 hour battery life, I doubt it'll generate a ton of heat, unless it's throttled back that much on battery.

    It's very nice but my budget is under $400, which I already bought my laptop from Toshiba and it's working fine!
