Alienware has officially unveiled three new laptops - including refreshed M11x, and new M14x models.

The refreshed M11x, with its 11.6in WLED HD (720p) display and 1,366x768 resolution, taps into the prowess of NVIDIA's GeForce GT 540M GPU, supports up to 16GB of 1,333MHz DDR3 RAM, and is fuelled by either an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 CPU.

 

 

The new M14x goes Intel Core i7 only and features a choice between a 14in WLED HD (720p) display - with a resolution of 1,366x768 - or, an WLED HD+ (900p) flavour offering a resolution of 1,600x900. NVIDIA's GeForce GT 555M GPU takes the helm here - together with Optimus technology to switch between discrete and integrated graphics capabilities - thereby, maximising battery life. Up to 8GB of 1,600MHz DDR3 RAM is supported and akin to all options, sounds are pumped out through built-in Klipsch speakers, plus there's the addition of USB 3.0 support and HDMI 1.4 connectivity too.

The third model - an 18.4in option known as the M18x - will be fleshed out over the coming weeks, but Alienware already teases that it will offer dual-GPU flavours, support up to 32GB of 1,333MHz DDR3 RAM and factory-overclocked Intel Core i7 Extreme Edition CPUs too.

In the meantime, the M11x and M14x are available starting at £899 and £1099, respectively, including VAT and delivery.

32gb RAM on the 18"? That's almost as much HDD space as my Netbook; and, for any current PC/laptop, completely un-necessary.
If only I had the money….*drools* :(
High end GPU's and Overclocked CPU's in a laptop. Id rather buy a laptop that wont die in 18 months due to the heat

Doubt it'll be that early. The warranty is probably two years, so you should shoot for 25 or 26 months. :)

No seriously, I reckon the heat issues aren't, perhaps, as serious as you infer - unless you have personal evidence to the contrary. In which case, I retract.

BTW, within the context you used them, CPUs and GPUs without the ‘ would be correct. I’ve (I have) just been reading http://www.limebury.com/users/apostrophe/page3.htm and it is (it's) very informative.

If you're talking about a property of, or something that belongs to, the CPU/GPU, you'd then say (for example):
  • the GPU's temperature; the temperature of the GPU.
Not trying to step on toes here - just to help.
Good to know actually, i always put the ' in!

Yeah it was slightly exaggerated but i can bet my regular laptop will last a heck of a lot longer
