Alienware M17X notebook has Core 2 Extreme and dual GTX 280M

Posted on Saturday, May 30 2009 @ 00:40:13 CEST by

The specifications and photos of the Alienware "all powerful" have been leaked. As expected, it's not something revolutionary but a new 17" notebook for hardcore gamers. The model is named Alienware M17X and it packs some pretty powerful hardware, prices start at $1,799 and you can equip it with an Intel Core 2 Extreme processor, two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M graphics cards, up to 8GB DDR3-1333 memory, up to two 1TB 7200RPM HDDs or 512GB SSDs, RAID 0 and 1, 1920 x 1200 pixel display and more.
Rounding things out is a nine-cell battery of unstated performance, FireWire, 4x USB, eSATA, ExpressCard, 802.11n WiFi, 8-in-1 media card reader, dual-layer Blu-ray, a 1920 x 1200 pixel edge-to-edge LCD, DisplayPort and HDMI-outs all wrapped up in a massive chassis weighing 11.68-pounds with a 15.98 x 12.65 x 2.11-inch footprint. It's also packing a GeForce 9400M G1 GPU with HybridPower technology that allows you to scale the graphics back to conserve battery power.

Too close to Clarkdale release.

Probably Nvidia chipset - hybrid grapics 9400

Too gaudy

Not a Dell - which is a bad thing

Dell forgot what sold the XPS's - but the sales figures on this beast should remind them.

Firewire? How 1990's

Displayport, esata, and good sound = good

No LED wide gamut high contrast screen?

Dunno what will get this thing sold...
