New this week from Alienware is their desktop replacement laptop, the Area 51 M15x. Weighing in at only 7 pounds, with a battery life of 4 hours (and the added bonus of a second battery), and a rear cooling system, the M15x is the only 15” laptop to feature Intel’s Core 2 Extreme 2.8 gHz processor.
With a screen resolution of 1920x1080, the M15x sports true 1080p to fully exploit the binary graphics - it can switch between its NVIDIA 8800 512 mhz graphics card and its integrated Intel card, which is perfect for getting the most out of DVDs viewed on the integrated Blu-Ray player. It also has an HDMI output to enjoy those Blu-Ray movies on a big screen. Alienware’s Area 51 M15x is available at a price point of around $2200 to $2300.
Phantom Entertainment, formerly Infinium Labs, today announced via press release that they have managed to find a buyer for their upcoming Phantom Lapboard. Gaming PC manufacturer Alienware has ordered the Lapboard and Wireless Laser Mouse for use in some of their Media Center-based PCs and their PC gear product line. Shipment of the Phantom hardware is scheduled to start in November, but given the company’s history, one might want to wait until the hardware is actually available before giving it a shot. Having Alienware order the Lapboard does give the company a little bit of credibility. Considering that the Alienware’s order is more than likely based on credit terms, though, means that Alienware is probably risking less money on this venture than the typical consumer.
