Dell's Press Release:

The two new faces in the Alienware laptop family, the upcoming M18x and the M14x, along with the new M11x, deliver unprecedented power to the gamer on the go.

These laptops, along with the M17x announced and launched in January, represent the most-significant expansion in Alienware’s portfolio in several years and arrive as the company celebrates its five-year anniversary as part of the Dell family. Since its acquisition by Dell, Alienware has expanded to provide award-winning gaming systems to a global fan base. The brand is also available at major retailers worldwide and has spawned a community site, Alienware Arena (Alienware Arena - Gamers Wanted), where gamers everywhere can interact socially and compete with one another.

“If you’re a gamer, you’re going to love our new family of laptops, which deliver on the features gamers care most about – uncompromised graphics performance, latency-free wireless HD streaming to HDTVs, and lifelike 3D gaming,” said Arthur Lewis, general manager of Alienware. “We are committed to delivering the best gaming systems for enthusiasts everywhere and we take great pride in helping them ‘pwn’, no matter where they are in the world.”


As Alienware’s flagship laptop, the M18x – which is also dubbed the “Most Powerful 18-inch Gaming Laptop in the Universe” – will be a true desktop replacement. It is perfect for gamers who want to compromise nothing for blistering frame rates and full immersion in the gaming experience.

18-inch laptop. The mind boggles. My first home PC had a 17 inch CRT monitor and that was huge for the day.

You had 10MB? Luxury! While my first home PC was a Pentium 90 DEC Celebris 590, my first home computer (discounting the Sinclair ZX81 and, I suppose, the Digi-Comp I) was a refurbished DEC PDP-11/03 with a VT55 terminal (it had upper and lower case, unlike the VT52), 60KB of core memory and a whopping 5MB, 90-lb, rack-mounted RL01 hard drive, running RT-11.

I don't quite get the appeal of these monster "gaming laptops", but then I am not their target audience.

DEC PDP-11..wow....I started programming on a PDP-11 mod 70 and the old Microdata Reality Series Minis..running the
PICK operating system back in the late '70's....

that was way before I ever dreamed of actually having a PC in my house

PS. well Steve, you know the processor in my laptop... but the whole idea of the M18x seems intriguing not for the gaming aspect but for the power of the machine, I mean 4ghz (i7) processor (you know I run a P4 3.4ghz now) up to 32gb of RAM (I got 2gb), not to mention the resolution (dual graphics), the HD doesnt even matter I would throw like a tb in there anyway..sounds like a pretty serious system, and the back-lighted keyboard is just a bonus (lol)...wonder what the battery life is like though, I mean I get like an hour and 15min now on my HP and thats pushing it....gotta be better than that and the HDMI ports, wireless video output.... the list just goes on.....wow..just hope its lighter than my 10lb HP......but I still got my lil ole 1010 to cart around

BTW: I still remember the Ultimate Mini Systems that had the Hard Drives that had the vacuum pack removable disk packs..one of the software houses I worked at had those I believe it was a DEC system
