Dell’s Alienware M11x is already one of the most powerful 11 inch laptops you can buy, at least when it comes to gaming performance. The machine currently uses a dual core Intel CULV processor and an NVIDIA GT 335M graphics card with 1GB of dedicated video memory. But now it looks like Dell plans to refresh the notebook with a new line of Intel processors designed to balance power consumption with, well… power.

Shufflegazine got word from a Dell exec that the laptop will be available with a choice of Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors as soon as next month.

It’s not entirely clear what the update will do to battery life. The Alienware M11x with an Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 processor a Pentium Dual Core SU4100 gets about 2 hours of hardcore gaming, or between 4 and 6 hours of web browsing and other casual use.
