Alienware Area-51 m9750 Review

 

Brawny customized gaming rig pulls out all the stops, including solid-state storage, but has a dark screen and other flaws.

Some of the fastest gaming in town ; Solid-state storage

Heart-stopping price tag ; Screen a tad dark

If you must have the newest technology, such as solid-state drives and Blu-ray, in your gaming laptop, belly up to this all-you-can-eat bar. Otherwise, keep looking

Alienware Area-51 M9750 Review

 

The Area-51 M9750 is a top-of-the-line gaming notebook from Alienware. It features an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and is available with dual Nvidia high-performance video cards

Fast gaming performance ; Out-of-this-world case design ; Extremely well built ; Keyboard has a great feel ; Excellent cooling system – system stays cool ; Available with Windows XP ; Relatively thin and light ; Great-looking display

Missing certain dedicated keyboard keys ; Odd number pad layout ; Vertical viewing angles could be better

The Alienware Area-51 M9750 definitely ranks as one of the most impressive systems I have used in almost every aspect, from its striking visual appearance to the fast overall performance. The M9750's beautiful customized case design is only half of the...

Alienware Area-51 M9750

 

I like the way the m9750's keyboard responds using the W, A, S, D keys, Arrow keys, and Shift and Enter keys. These keys are typically associated with shoot-'em-up games such as Unreal Tournament, Half-Life, and Prey. On the other hand, I found the...

SLI-enabled graphics. Dual 160GB hard drives rated at 7,200 rpm. 1,920-by-1,200 resolution. Awesome gaming performance. Home theater connectivity ports. Stealth Black is in vogue

Mouse buttons need work. Price tag is fair but can turn you away

A new Stealth Black design and SLI graphics allow the Alienware Area-51 m9750 to take its rightful place on the gaming throne.

Alienware m9750 Notebook Review - SLI, RAID and Gaming on the Go

 

Alienware has made a name for itself by building high-end gaming PCs for years now. They are not new to the mobile market either and their products are aimed at someone that loves to game, but needs to take that power with them. Enter the m9750 notebook!

Alienware Area-51 m9750 Laptop

 

The SLI-equipped Alienware Area-51 m9750 is the most powerful gaming notebook we've seen to date, but with updated components on the horizon, it may not hold that title for long.

Beautiful display; dual SLI video cards offer record-breaking graphics performance; excellent A/V connectivity, including built-in TV tuner; will be refreshed with new nVidia graphics by end of year

Expensive; stale case design; no HDMI port; short battery life; newer components are on the horizon

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how
