Alienware Area-51 m15x gaming notebook review

For years Alienware has been producing machines that cater to gamers and enthusiasts desires, coupling some of the industry's most radical designs with top of the line PC hardware. So when Alienware introduced the Area-51 m15x we were obviously keen to check it out.

Our review sample came configured with the new Intel Core 2 Extreme X9000 "Penryn XE" mobile processor and a GeForce 8800M GTX (512MB) graphics card. In short, this is the combination of the fastest possible mobile CPU and the fastest mobile GPU out there. Of course, this won't come cheap as the retail value of our review sample was $4770.

The build quality of a laptop is just as important and this is typically an area where we typically haven't seen Alienware products falling short. Furthermore, there are details on the inner and exterior design that a product in this price range better have.

I disagree with the article. It is not a desktop replacement. It is the fastest gaming laptop you can buy for a 15" model. If you want cheaper versions with a 8800, there are 17" models that are cheaper.

I think I'd just not play games on a laptop if I have to pay 5000$ to get the equivalent performance of an 800$ desktop.

5k for a laptop.... I don't care if it plays Crysis at full setting no way in HELL would I pay that. Amazing specs...but not worth it IMO unless its you travel a lot and ned specs like that for your work.
