Alienware M11x Up for Pre-Order Now! - 02-02-2010, 12:00 AM
The Alienware M11x, Dells gaming netbook under the Alienware brand is now available to pre-order on the Dell US site. I say netbook but maybe GamingBook would be more appropriate.
The unit comes with an array of options, there are many different combinations, I managed to max it out at over $2k, but by the time I had got to that, it probably could have run Crysis. Twice. No just kidding, but who knows? You can upgrade to a dual-core CPU, up to 8GB of RAM, an uber-256GB SSD and WWAN + GPS on Verizon or AT&T.
Shipping date for this baby is as early as March 1st.

If i don't choose the WWAN and Bluetooth cards now, will the wiring still be there if i decide to buy the cards later?? Or do they remove everything?

When you really think about it, specification-wise, it's not a "netbook". It's a gaming machine that you can take with you. If you are concerned with the 11" screen size, just connect it to a 24" flat panel when you are not traveling. Connect an external keyboard and mouse too. The best thing is you can shutdown, unplug and put it in a bag. Do that with a desktop. Even the 17" Alienware laptop is 11.68 lbs. and $1,700.
At $800, 4.5 lbs. and 8.5 hour battery life makes this a great solution, if you can get past "bigger is better". If I was looking for a new system to replace my desktop, laptop and netbook, this would be in the running.
Wait until they start hitting the Outlet. :-)

Screensize...when I am at home I plug my 10v into my 24" Dell monitor.
I'm going to hedge my bets in a few weeks and hope that OSX (NBM/NBI) will support the graphics card.
I bet I can dump my 10v on Craigslist for sub $300 and make some $$ back.
