Alienware M18x: A Portable Gaming Machine from Another Galaxy

by Gustavo on April 21, 2011 · 1 comment · Laptop

Alienware notebooks always offer a very high performance and are designed specially for gamers who want to play games at the highest quality possible. Alienware offers high-end equipment with technical features that are hard to beat and the designs are some of the most spectacular and futuristic ever seen.

As the name suggests, the equipment seems to be from another galaxy and they are completely different to the traditional laptops that we see in the store. Following this trend, Alienware offers its latest portable gaming machine model, the M18x, which really dazzles both by its exterior and interior. Thanks to its agreement with Dell, more gamers can now enjoy all their models in other countries than just the USA and can be acquired through Dell’s website. If you love video games and want to enjoy the most demanding games, not only at home, but anywhere, then there’s nothing better than the Alienware M18X. However, start saving or preparing to spend a big chunk of cash. These are no gaming equipment for all budgets and are not affordable for the average buyer.

But if you can afford this new laptop, for sure you are going to have a really superb gaming machine. Inside it has one of the most powerful processors in the market, Intel Quad Core Extreme i7 running at 4 GHz. If we add up to 32 GB of RAM DDR3 at 1600 MHz, you get the idea of ​​the beast, which offers a tremendous potential. Any game at its maximum or other application for this laptop is a joke. As today’s games are very demanding in terms of requirements, nothing better than to offer the choice between NVIDIA SLI dual graphics or CrossFireX AMD (to get an idea, CrossFireX card models sell on the market at around 1,000 dollars). The graphic quality is indeed from another planet.

As in the other characteristics of the equipment, the hard disk will have some configuration freedom to set our media in terms of its capacity. What does not vary is its hybrid hard disk standard hard drives and SSDs, which ensures the maximum speed.

But of course, to enjoy the picture quality is so important to have a screen to handle the graphics card. And as one would expect it’s very impressive. It’s a LED type with 18.4-inch Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels).

The number of connections that this computer has is almost endless: Ultimate-N 6300 WiFi 802.11 a / b / g / n compliant dual-band connectivity to 2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz, 4 USB ports (two of type 3.0 and other two 2.0), 1 output HDMI 1.4 and one input HDMI 1.3 that will allow us to connect to an external screen with the highest quality audio and video, a VGA port or a memory card reader 9 in 1.

In terms of design, as is usual within the brand it will offer a portable gaming machine that’s powerful, rugged and spectacular, with a futuristic look. The materials used are of high quality and allow a great resistance. Obviously a laptop of this size and with these components suffers in its size and weight that is well above usual.

The M18X information is available on Dell’s website, but we still don’t know the release date (although it should be imminent) or price. Although it will most likely not be below $3,000 at its most basic configuration. A luxury for those who want the latest technology and can afford to pay a high price for playing games with maximum power.




List Price: $1,799.99 USD
