Alienware M11x to Get Optimus, New Intel CPUs

Engadget points to a couple of postings on the Notebook Review forums by someone who appears to be connected to Alienware. When someone said they'd like to see the notebook get the Optimus treatment, along with the option for Intel's newest CPUs and a better screen resolution, a poster named Darkhan responded and said everything but the improved screen resolution was coming. When pressed for a release date, Darkhan gave an end of June to mid July estimate.

Currently the 11.6-inch M11x ships with Intel's Core 2 Duo SU7300 (1.3GHz), Nvidia GT335M GPU, 4GB of DDR3 and a 160GB HDD.

    Alienware hit upon an untapped market apparently: little people who play computer games.

    LOL. I think for the price they are charging it is a pretty solid deal though, a lot more value then the dell XPS I purchased 3 years ago for school/casual gaming.

  • Is Darkhan an actual Dell/Alienware employee? Because I could say that I heard the M11x will also be getting a better screen as well.

    Unfortunately, in AU it starts at $1299 with the SU7300/4GB/500GB coming in at $1700 (~1583 USD). At that price I'd be surprised if a single one sold over here..

    Darkhan is in engineering at Alienware/Dell. He is trustable.
