  1. More details on Dell's upcoming 14-inch Alienware gaming notebook have surfaced courtesy of a Chinese tech site. Zol has confirmed that at least one iteration of the M14x will be equipped with an 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GT 555M graphics, which should offer a respectable gaming experience. Displays will include a 1366x768 or 1920x1080 panel.

    Never was a fan of the Alienware look though.

    Modern games will run like crap (OK, that's an exaggeration) on the 1920x1080 panel with the GeForce GT 555M. For the smaller resolution though, it's perfect gaming laptop.

    However, don't expect to run games like BFBC2 and other DX11 games at 30+ fps @1920x1080....

    @lawfer: While I agree with your general statement, I personally would want the resolution for desktop real estate rather than for gaming. That being said I wouldn't mind running games at a lower resolution. However if you want to run games at the native resolution, well that's why there is a lower resolution panel (and you'll save some money to boot).

    1366X768 is a good res for that size screen. Should really fly as long as that card is decent. Add damage protection etc and it will be crazy money.

    Puts "I've been touched by one of those spacemen!" in a whole new perspective, doesn't it?

    Yeah... that's exactly why I said the lower resolution one is the perfect one...?
