Alienware's Area-51 m15x laptop

The Area-51 m15x has a 15.4in display, with 1920 x 1200 resolution, and incorporates an Intel Core 2 Extreme X9000 CPU, with 6MB of shared L2 cache and an 800MHz front side bus.

Nvidia’s GeForce 8800M GTX GPU is built into the Area-51 m15x’s shell, in addition to a hot-swappable optical drive, with 2x Blu-ray reading capability, and a primary hard drive of up 320GB with 5400RPM or a 64GB solid state drive. An optional removable second hard drive and backup battery is also, well, optional.

Users get three USB 2.0 ports and a 7-in-1 media card reader, which includes SD cards, on the 330 x 369 x 272mm machine. Bluetooth 2.0 is on-board and the laptop’s Wi-Fi connectivity works across the b/g/n bands. A two-megapixel webcam is built into the inner of the laptop's lid.

Alienware’s Area-51 m15x laptop will cost £1545 (€2100/$3000) and is available online now.
