Conclusion: The Alienware M11x's case was already convincing after only a few hours of use. The compact size and the civilized weight allow for a mobile use without hesitation. Unfortunately, the display wasn't convincing, as it appeared to be too dark and therefore can get annoying in unfavorable surrounding light conditions with frequent mirroring effect and reflections. As to the 11.6 inch mite's performance, you can speak of a success in view of the notebook's size.
Summary: Like its predecessors, the third-generation Alienware M11x offers equal parts style, gaming prowess, and portability. As the only true gaming notebook under 13 inches, the M11x is a must-have for anyone who needs a lightweight notebook that's capable of playing serious games. The keyboard layout is somewhat cramped and the Wi-Fi performance is lackluster, but overall the M11x continues to impress.
Pros: Sleek design, Customizable keyboard lighting, Solid gaming performance for size, Great low-light webcam, Long battery life
Conclusion: Inside the looks of Alienware M11X laptop you have a Core i5 or Core i7 ULV processor which is considered as the best next generation processors from the Intel processor family. Hence, you can find two different configurations of Alienware M11X laptop in the market. The Core i5 520UM ULV processor has a 2GB DDR3 RAM and 160 GB HDD while the other model has the Core i7 640UM ULV processor.
Conclusion: The netbook is also loaded with NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M along with Intel GMA HD. In both the versions you have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Operating System and the netbook weighs around 4.6 pounds which is normal for a regular netbook.
Summary: We were excited to test out the Alienware M11x with Optimus, and the system really satisfies. Coupled with a Core i7 processor, the Nvidia graphics produced the highest frame rates we've seen in a system this size--not to mention nearly 6 hours of battery life. Not bad for a notebook with a current street price under $1,200. While we were dismayed by the fact that our first review sample froze, the second system sent to us by Alienware allayed our concerns.
Pros: Cool design, Innovative lighting features, Faster new Core i7 processor, Excellent gaming frame rates, Good battery life,
Summary: The Alienware M11x is a very intriguing machine. For $1,099, you're essentially getting two systems: a thin-and-light ULV laptop that's fairly portable, and can last nearly a full day on a charge, and a gaming rig that lets you play graphics-intensive games at more than comfortable frame rates.
Pros: Powerful switchable graphics, Stylish chassis and lighting, Stellar audio quality, Long battery life, Facial recognition works well,
Cons: Fan noise a little loud, Heavier than most 11-inch systems, Somewhat cramped keys
Conclusion: The Alienware M11x isn’t as powerful a gaming machine as the ASUS G73Jh , but it is a more portable, and much sleeker-looking option. It’s also quite a bit more affordable. For gamers who aren’t quite able to justify the huge investment that is the G73Jh, the M11x is a very good option.
Excerpt: Alienware very successfully refreshed their notebook lineup in 2009 with the M17x and the M15x . These systems performed well, had an interesting look to them, and were a hit with gamers. Reviews were positive across the board. Then earlier this year Alienware threw gamers a serious surprise –a small, almost netbook-sized gaming computer.
Summary: Alienware is a premium brand that’s spent years redefining mobile gaming, even so under Dell’s 5-year ownership. Offering a range of laptops with screen sizes of 11-, 14-, 17- and 18-inches, the M11x R3 (from £649) is the third revision of the company’s most compact of machines.
