Alienware M11x R3, M14x and M18x Prepare for Landing

"Today our Alienware team is redefining mobile gaming - again - with three new, all-powerful laptops, the enhanced Alienware M11x R3, the new M14x and the soon to be available M18x."

Proving that there is still a lively market for desktop-replacement, game-playing laptops, Dell has announced their next generation of Alienware powerhouses. The massive M18x touts itself as "most powerful 18-inch gaming laptop in the universe," and is a superb desktop replacement. An overclocked Intel Core i7 Extreme is housed within an aluminum chasis, and dual graphics drive the 18.4-inch LCD with 1920x1200 resolution. The M14x and M11x R3 offer loads of power in more mobile form, and add either Intel WiMAX or Verizon LTE technology. Game players rejoice! Dell and Alienware are alive and well!

CES 2011: Dell's Press Conference Announcing the Dell Streak 7, Venue Phone, and Other New Hardware

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Events" @ 04:00 PM

For full-screen viewing, click click on the video above and watch it on YouTube.

This is a video shot in Las Vegas at CES 2011, the Consumer Electronics Show. This is the first time the Dell Streak 7 has been officially unveiled, along with the Dell Venue, and the un-named 10 inch tablet. Other announced hardware includes a 3D version of the XPS 17 laptop, a new Alienware Aurora desktop PC, a new XPS 8300 desktop PC, and a few other odds and ends. The press conference was almost an hour long, so I tried to include only the interesting parts. Enjoy!

3D Gaming On The PC In 3D

"In fact, it’s a natural fit. The PC games we’ve been playing for years are already rendered with a 3D engine—stereoscopic technology and a suitable set of glasses just bring them to life. Newer games will only optimize that potential. Add to this a spate of Blu-ray 3D movies coming down the pike and you can see why the PC is well within the clutches of this latest trend."

If promotions and marketing is any sign of anything, life was a boring, dull, drab existence before 3D came along. In order to live life to its fullest and die happy, you need a 3D display. Even computing was nothing before 3D came along. Games will magically be exciting. Spreadsheets will pop out at you. YouTube videos will become entertaining. All thanks to the 3D revolution! If you have bought all the hype, Maximum PC has a guide that could help you make your choice when stepping into the wonderful world of the third dimension. It is fortunate that I like things dull because going 3D also appears to cost a fair bit more than your more pedestrian consumer electronics.

Why Yes, That Is An Third Generation Alienware M17x I Have In My Pocket!

"The second incarnation of Alienware’s M17x is creating lots of excitement amongst mobile gaming enthusiasts, but does it really beat a field of premium models? We put it up against solutions from Eurocom and AVADirect to find out what CrossFire can do."

While the integrated graphics market is heating up with the upcoming release of Sandy Bridge, they do not hold a candle, or even a burnt out match against the giants that house not one, but two video cards. These babies are the peak of mobile gaming, able to run the most demanding of games with the highest settings. Coupled with a Core i7-920XM CPU, there is probably very little that the Alienware M17x cannot do. Of course, something this powerful comes at a very powerful price, and you probably will not see many of them around even at LAN parties. That is, if LAN parties still exist. I have not been to one myself for years. Anyone still hip on the local gaming scene, or has voice chat devastted the market?
