Unveiled at CES in early January, Dell today is launching the highly anticipated extremely portable gaming laptop: the Alienware M11x. At CES, the M11x won both CNET’s Award for the Best Gaming Product at CES 2010 and IGN’s Award for Best Computer. The M11x is one of the smallest gaming laptops hitting the market with an 11” design. Dell literally went and packed in the power of a 15” laptop in an 11” design with this PC. And it weighs in at less than 4.5 pounds. Dell recently did a blog post called A Brief History of the Alienware M11x which gives some more perspective and back story to the PC.
The M11x can be configured with (and up to) the follow specs:
- Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
- Processor: Up to Intel Core2 Duo SU7300 (1.3GHz, 800 MHz, 3 MB)
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M – 1GB GDDR3
- Memory: Up to 8GB – DDR3 1066MHz

- Network: 802.11 b/g/n & Optional Internal WWAN
- Ports: HDMI / VGA / 3 USB / Media Card Reader / FireWire
The keyboard integrates back lit keys which are fully customizable through the exclusive Alienware Command center, featuring AlienFX software. The Alienware M11x will be available in 2 color options: Cosmic Black or Lunar Shadow (Silver).
You can order the Alienware M11x today starting at $799. Dell is working to bring this PC to international markets, including South Asia. Look for Dell to announce more details when those plans are finalized.
