CES just would not be CES without a new Alienware machine, and this year is a real pearler. The new M17x (third revision) is the first 3D-capable Alienware gaming laptop. For the 3D features that you need to go for the 20Hz, WideFHD WLED LCD model with the 1.5 GB Nvidia GTX 460M graphics card. But hey, why not?
This 17-inch monster packs of the new Intel i7 processors and i5 Sandy Bridge, with an Intel P67 Express chipset, and wireless HDMI HD capabilities. If you do not need or want 3D (and you want to save a few pounds) you can also opt for an ATI HD6870M 1GB or 2GB 6970M graphics version such as on Compaq Presario CQ56-115DX.
The Alienware M17x R3 will be available from January 10. There was also an Alienware desktop machine announced at CES – the Aurora, which will cost you at least 999 pounds, and packs Sandy Bridge chips (overclocked liquid cooled) and graphics from Nvidia or AMD Crossfire X or SLI mode.None found.
