Dell's been busy at CES, announcing various product refreshes and new devices. Most of the updates include Inspiron
and Studio XP
systems built around Intel's Core i3 and Core i5 processors, which isn't anything more than you'd expect -- but a few gems stand out.
The company has revealed an 11-inch Alienware gaming notebook, claiming it to be the "first ultra-mobile gaming laptop." The Alienware M11x is capable of playing games and videos at 720p, with up to 6.5 hours of battery life in "battery mode" and 2 hours when in "gaming mode."
The system can switch between integrated and Nvidia GT335M graphics. According to Gizmodo, the M11x can attain 50FPS in Crysis
, and scores about 6,000 to 7,000 in 3DMark. It should ship later this year for under a grand.
Dell's 5-inch "Streak
" slate prototype has been spotted at CES as well, but the company is keeping quiet on details. It supposedly runs on Android, supports a SIM card, and may come in larger sizes.
