Dell today has announced that it's Alienware M11x laptop has gotten a much desired hardware update. Now, the M11x is Alienware's smallest laptop at 11 inches so it technically falls into the netbook line. Alienware is known for high-performance systems and the M11x is no different as it is a netbook that can play games and play them well. The new hardware comes in the form of new Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and NVIDIA Optimus technology. The Core i5 and i7 processors can be overclocked beyond the factory defaults to allow you to get more horsepower from your investment.
The M11x will offer the NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M graphics chip which will use 1GB of of VRAM to help power your games. You will also be able to benefit from NVIDIA PhysX in supported games. The NVIDIA Optimus technology will allow you to switch between the integrated Intel HD GMA and the discrete NVIDIA chip when you want to save battery life or play a demanding game.
The Alienware M11x will be available with the new upgrades starting today. The M11x may be called a netbook but the price certainly is not as it clocks in at $1,799.
