Great Budget Buy for a Used Laptop That Outperforms Newer, More Expensive Laptops.

Summary: I bought this laptop used with upgrades including a 500GB 7200RPM Hard Disk Drive, brand new internal LCD, and an external DVD-RW Drive with Lightscribe for $377 USD. It also came with the soft case, box, and everything else you'd get with it had it been purchased new. Despite being an excellent buy for the money, I was a bit concerned if it would be a good enough buy for myself, as its intended use was to be a work computer for graphic design and animation.
Excerpt: The Alienware M11-X is Alienware's newest gaming laptop. Something i first noticed about this laptop was the ability to change the colors of the laptop. Also if you order this computer from the Dell website you can get a plate on the bottom of the computer engraved with anything you want it to say. It will have some weird "Alien-like writing" then the phrase or name or word you wish to have. This laptop weighs less than 5 pounds and has an 11 inch screen.
Excerpt: Alienware's M11x is a great gaming laptop. With a screen that's only a little over 11 inches and a case that only weighs around five pounds, the M11x has the mobility of a netbook, but has the power of a high-end gaming PC. Simply put, it is a great little machine. Although many might take a first glance at it and deem it too small to game on, your eyes will quickly adjust to the size of the screen.
Excerpt: I recently purchased the Alienware M11X Laptop computer, and it is an amazing little machine. Its small size and virtual weightlessness belie its power and abilities. I am completely in love with many, many aspects of this little powerhouse. The keys light up in a variety of hues and colors, which I love when I need to type in not so well lit places. The online games I play, move flawlessly and effortlessly throughout gameplay, with no glitches or lagtime at all.
Excerpt: This laptop is by far the fastest computer i have ever owned which is in its own sense not much of an accomplishment when considering the speed of my original computer. This laptop has run every game i have thrown at it with at least 20 fps on high settings with exception to the obvious games like crysis and metro 2033. Even so it would play these games at decent frame rates at medium high settings.
Excerpt: I've just got to first say I love my Alienware M11x Laptop, granted I upgraded to this from a 6 year old Dell Inspiron brick with no battery. Anyway, if you're interested in this you are probably wondering about the physical size and size of screen (11.6"). I pretty much instantly adjusted from my 15" laptop before and while it is very portable, its pretty heavy for the size. The keyboard does not feel cramped at all.
Excerpt: An Alienware PC Gaming Laptop or PC Notebook is exactly as advertised. You can play any game on it such as World Of Warcraft. Thats the one my son plays all the time with every spare minute. Dell now sells the Alienware PC Gaming Laptop System with prices that vary. They sell from $649.00 all the way up to $4,099.00 for the top of the line Alienware PC Gaming Laptop System.
Excerpt: I ended up not staying with this laptop because, although I was looking for an ultra-portable gaming laptop, this one was a bit too small for my big hands. I ended up going with the Dell XPS 14 instead. Measures up to this pound for pound just fine. Aside from that this laptop has awesome battery life, light weight, ultra portable, sleek design. Runs games great. Alienware software that comes with it is awesome.
Excerpt: Now this is certainly where it is at. I have mentioned before that portability is important for a laptop, and that such a statement should be obvious. I have used many a portable computer in my time, and the Alienware M11x Notebook PC is certainly no slouch. I could go on and rave about specifications, technological advances, and spew out a plethora of numbers and phrases that I frankly have no first clue or idea about, but I will spare you all of that and just give you...
