Laptop Magazine checked out this notebook from Alienware and writes: "Weighing in at 7.2 pounds, the Alienware Area-51 m5500 is a portable with some punch. Along with the ABS Mayhem G4 Revolution notebook (reviewed on page 142), the m5500 is among the first to offer dual graphics cards. The idea is to let gamers get in a few rounds of Battlefield 2 with Nvidia’s GPU, and then switch over to Intel graphics to save some battery life for everyday tasks like surfing the Web or checking e-mail. Is this multiple-personality portable worth almost two grand? The m5500 looks exciting on the outside with a blue LED and rubberized side grips, but flip it open and it’s indistinguishable from the myriad of other notebooks on the market.."
