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. So, according to Alienware, the laptop “establishes a new performance standard” and will get backwards glances from the likes of hardcore gamers, 3D content creators, students and professionals on the go.

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.
