Product Specifications

Alienware's workstations deliver maximum performance, reliability, and stability in applications from 3D animation and architectural design to visual effects and post-production. Scalable to meet even the most demanding projects, Alienware's systems have the power and flexibility to accurately deliver the most challenging projects. The Alienware MJ-12 m7700i boasts a gorgeous 17" widescreen LCD to give users ample workspace for all their application needs. With a 1400 x 900 native resolution, power users can enjoy the ability to have two full windows open side-by-side to maximize their productivity. Multimedia users will also enjoy the 16:10 aspect ratio which lends itself perfectly to widescreen DVD's and applications. The NVIDIA Quadro FX Go1400 GPU for PCI Express sets a new standard for mobile 3D workstation graphics, providing performance, programmability, precision, and quality for professional CAD, DCC, and scientific applications. This GPU virtually guarantees sustained productivity for all professionals on the go, from effects creators on a movie set, to engineers at the plant, to the geoscientist on a remote oil rig. Typically, notebook systems feature less powerful mobile processors in order to remove excess heat and reduce power drains, which are typically the most important factors for notebook systems. The MJ-12 m7700i was designed from the ground up to maximize power and minimize heat in order to support Intel's full-speed Pentium 4 desktop processors. The MJ-12 m7700i makes no sacrifices in power or performance.
