  1. As expected, Dell has unveiled three Sandy Bridge-powered Alienware gaming notebooks: the M11x, M14x and M18x. Starting at $999, the 11.6-inch M11x R3 weighs less than 4.5lbs in its lightest configuration and carries a 1.4GHz Intel Core i5-2537M or 2.6GHz Core i7-2617M, Nvidia GeForce 500-series graphics (the GT 540M and/or 555M seem likely) along with Optimus to switch between integrated and discrete solutions.

    Can't even begin to imagine how noisy the M18x will be!

    Why 1600x900 on a gaming laptop? That's a bad call. Any gamer will want full HD. They probably just want you to get the 18.4" one so they can make more money.

    Try to be realistic, the 14" model comes with a GT555m, 1600x900 is already stretching it as far as getting playable performance in modern games goes. It's not exactly the flagship model, nor is it marketed as such. You need at least a GTX470m, which has double the shaders, to get beyond "playable" (30+fps) performance in most modern games @1080 on a laptop, and there's a reason they usually put those chips in a 17" or larger chassis....
