We've been itching to get our hands on the Alienware M11x ever since we first saw it at CES -- it's one of the most interesting riffs on the thin-and-light we'...

Alienware M11x (spring 2011) review: Alienware M11x (spring 2011)

 

Alienware M11x (spring 2011)

This year's version of the ; has markedly improved graphics performance and battery life, and the laptop's solid build, USB 3.0 ports, and impressive 5.1 surround-sound Klipsch speakers are also pluses.

The M11x still has a chunky chassis; also, the lack of an optical drive isn't a dealbreaker, but can be frustrating when installing games.

Don't be fooled by its unchanged looks: the 2011 Alienware M11x makes big leaps forward in performance, graphics, and battery life, while keeping a reasonable price. Anyone looking for a portable gaming-ready laptop will have a hard time resisting the...

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 (Core i7 review: Alienware M11x (Core i7

 

Alienware M11x (Core i7

Solid gaming performance in a very compact form; improves on the original Core 2 Duo version; automatic Nvidia Optimus graphics switching; impressive built-in audio.

The Core i7 ULV processor is still slower than normal Core i7 processors; higher-end configs get too expensive; no optical drive for installing games.

Equipped with Nvidia Optimus technology and new Core i5 and i7 processors, the updated 11.6-inch Alienware M11x has improved performance, but it takes a small step forward, not a quantum leap.

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.

Alienware M11x

 

If you're a PC gamer sick of lugging around an 8- to 10-pound monster with awful battery life just to play games, Alienware's M11x is your salvation. This 11.6-inch ultraportable laptop has enough power to play all the latest titles while making only...

AlienFX customizable lighting ; Fantastic performance

Display has poor vertical viewing angles ; Fan noise gets a little loud

In the M11x, gamers finally have a fully capable notebook that's easily portable and offers great battery life.

Alienware M11X review: Alienware M11X

 

Alienware M11X

Solid gaming performance in a very compact form; switchable graphics for longer battery life; great keyboard.

ULV processor isn't as fast as most gaming laptops; no optical drive.

With its fusion of a low-voltage processor and high-end graphics, the 11.6-inch Alienware M11x is a unique and extremely compact hybrid gaming laptop with a few compromises for its size.

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.

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
