It's probably wrong to call this a netbook, but it does have an 11.6-inch display and up to 6.5 hours of battery life. Its thickness and weight make it a bit beefier than other ultraportables, but there's one thing that sets this apart from others in the same size segment.
It plays Crysis.
Yesterday, Alienware announced at CES the M11x gaming laptop. Details are light at the moment, but we know it'll be powered with a Nvidia GT335M switchable graphics and an Intel CPU. It'll be well equipped for gaming on an external display too with VGA, HDMI and DisplayPort options.
It'll all start at under $1,000 when it ships this spring.
