Dell’s first ultraportable gaming rig is now available for pre-order. The Alienware M11x will begin shipping on March 1st, but you can put in a pre-order for this 11.6 inch laptop for $799 and up starting today.
The base model features a 1.3GHz Pentium Dual Core SU4100 CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 160GB 5400rpm hard drive, Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit), and NVIDIA GeForce GT 335 graphics with 1GB of dedicated memory. It also has 5.1 channel audio, and an 1366 x 768 pixel HD display.
That’s for the base model. There are a handful of upgrade options available. For instance, another $100 will get you a marginally faster 1.3GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 processor. You can upgrade to 4GB of RAM for another $50, or to 8GB of RAM for a whopping $350 upgrade. A 250GB, 7200rpm hard drive will only set you back another $50, which totally seems worth it. The 256GB SSD for $570? I’m not as certain.
