Alienware has launched its first AMD-powered notebook with a 17" LCD display. The Aurora m7700 is a high-end laptop powered by AMD's Athlon 64 FX , Athlon 64 and Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors. The company says this laptop is an ideal solution for people who want to replace their desktop without sacrificing performance. It comes with desktop-equivalent processing and graphics capabilities as well as dual hard drives and dual optical drives.
The laptop can be delivered with AMD's Athlon 64 (FX-55 and FX-57), the Athlon 64 X2 (3800+, 4200+, 4400+, 4600+ and 4800+) or the Athlon 64 (3000+, 3200+, 3500+, 3800+ and 4000+). For ultra-fast graphics you can choose between NVIDIA's GeForce Go 7800 GTX, GeForce Go 6800 Ultra or the GeForce Go 6800. You can also equip the system with two hard drives (including RAID 0 or RAID 1 support) and choose between 256MB, 512MB, 1GB or 2GB of memory.
"Alienware's new AMD-based Aurora m7700 dispels the belief that mobile systems cannot deliver the same experience as high performance desktops," said Frank Azor, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Alienware's Worldwide Product Group. "From the gamer looking to dominate the next LAN party to the executive requiring cutting-edge power both in and out of the office, the Aurora m7700 delivers the perfect high performance mobile solution for any individual."
