Review Alienware M11x Subnotebook


The Midget amongst the Gamers. Until now, Alienware has rather be

Chic design; Excellent workmanship; Extensive lighting; Quite a lot of connections; Fairly good application and gaming performance; Long battery life; Good input devices; Fast hard disk

Reflective, poor luminosity and sensitive display; A weak CPU in comparison to the graphic card; Wrist-rest gets warm; Noisy under load; Screwed battery

There aren't actually any. The Alienware M11x has cleverly settled into a market niche - that of the currently rather thinly equipped gaming capable notebooks.

Review Alienware M11x R2 Subnotebook

Alienware M11x Review


The terms petite and gaming notebook are about as incongruous as self-restraint and Wall Street, so our curiosity about Alienware's M11x was naturally mixed with skepticism. Could this sub–five pound, 11-inch rig do much more than play aged or anemic...

Uberportability, robust gaming, and long battery life in one kick-ass package

No optical drive; no Express Card; old-school hybrid graphics solution

Frankly, we’re amazed at Alienware’s accomplishment. Are there sacrifices? Sure. The biggest being the lack of an optical drive. But all things considered, that seems a fair trade for an otherwise thoroughly outfitted ultraportable that can actually...

Alienware M11x (second revision)


In my review of the original Alienware M11x, I called the system a revelation for gamers: Finally, here was an ultraportable laptop with enough muscle to play the latest games at good quality and performance levels and without worrying about anemic...

Fantastic performance ; AlienFX customizable lighting

Reduced battery life from first revision ; Display has poor vertical viewing angles

A boost to the internal hardware gives the second revision of the M11x substantially stronger performance, but battery life takes a hit.

Alienware M11x R2 Review


Dell enjoyed overnight success with the Alienware M11x earlier this year. This 11-inch notebook outperforms many larger laptops and is priced below $1000. Unfortunately for Dell, consumers quickly started asking for an Alienware M11x with Intel Core i7...

Ultraportable gaming notebook ; Fantastic design and durability ; Better CPU options and Nvidia Optimus

No matte screen option ; Integrated battery ; Not much better than the original M11x

Alienware M11x (Optimus Graphics)


When the Alienware M11x first came out in May, we remarked that the system was nearly perfect save for one thing: users had to manually switch between the discrete and integrated graphics. With the advent of Nvidia's Optimus technology--which does the...

Alienware M11x (Core i7)


The Alienware M11x (Core i7) is a gaming laptop fit for road warriors, now with a faster Core i7 processor and Nvidia's switching graphics technology.

Stealth design is one of a kind. Ruggedized exterior. Portable by gaming laptop standards. Lighting effects are a real treat. Backlit keyboard. HDMI and DisplayPort. Excellent gaming card. Leverage NVidia's Optimus technology. Very good battery life....

Undersized keyboard. Screen glare can be bothersome. Battery is screwed into the chassis.
