If I can hold out 25 minutes, then I'll have to board the plane and escape my materialistic desires!
Also, I'm lugging a 15" Dell and a Sony P11Z with me and intend to get an iPad whilst I'm away, so worried I can't carry it all back on hand luggage :(

Just get the 1825PTZ from John Lewis. Ok not as good a Graphics card, but the SU4100 wont be capable of doing anything with that graphics card.

Also this is very cold as the US price for these is SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper - Alienware in the UK is a very big rip off.

Thanks! - Just saved me from spending 735 quid! - I'll do further research in my time away!
Am always a bit sceptical of any tax free thing at airport - so was surprised by this, thanks for making me think again :)

It seemed to run BF BC2 ok from what I've seen (I know someone who has one), infact for an 11" laptop the performance was pretty amazing was tempted to get one but can't really justify the cost.

This is the older model, if going for this machine I'd fork out a bit more for the newer i5 ULV version as it has turbo modes which is particularly useful given it's a weaker processor. Performance wise the machine does look decent but I'd rather have a wider 13in chassis that isn't as deep with an optical drive rather than the more limited 11in, deep chassis with no optical drive as I don't think there's really much of a size/weight saving there.

Actually, was looking around in Hong Kong today, and it would seem that the deal was in fact quite a good one, since I could find it any cheaper over here...

I'm looking for a portable 11" laptop which can also play games with a decent keyboard, and the M11x is the only thing which fits the bill, if only if had a matt screen and was cheaper, it would be perfect!!

performace scores from windows 7:-
Processor 4.0
RAM 4.7
Graphics 6.4
Gaming gfx 6.4
HDD 5.9

If anyone does find a better machine of the same size or smaller, let me know pls!!

ebay is your best bet you can get the i7 version with all the trimmings for 900 including delivery which is like 1200 on the alienware uk site

Hi,

I actually have an MX11 and bought it in february when they were released. I can honestly say that I absolutely love it, I'm always seen with it. The size makes it a 'netbook' but the performance is easily on board with most laptops, while the graphics card makes it undoubtably even better, not to mention the ability to switch to onboard to save battery. When running in onboard mode I usually get around 6 hours, when watching a movie or something while if I'm just typing on word its easily over 7.

I have played most Steam ran games (which is the main way of getting games onto it as theres no cd drive) and everything is beyond acceptable. It truly is the best portable laptop I have ever seen.

I often get asked 'but its so small, why didnt u just get a normal laptop, to which I respond, 'if I wanted a laptop it was to be portable, an 11' is about as portable as you can get. Compared to an i-pad the Mx11 wins hands down for literally everything.

Check some reviews and you'll see that most put the mx11 at 9/10, after very detailed reviewing of framerates through games, to me thats unbeatable! Regarding the cd drive, if you really need a cd drive then perhaps you shouldnt be buying a notebook in the first place as its near impossible the get chipsets down to that size.

The one thing I'd advise is, like you suggest, getting a 4gb upgrade, I went for the default setting 2gb, due to it being a very reasonable £600, £650 with a tactX mouse, and it was £80 to upgrade to 4gb, but I will be upgrading to 4 gb in the future without doubt. 2GB has ran everything I've chucked at it almost perfectly.

Seriously, the best thing you'll buy in the next forseable future and at £734, with all upgrades that was a great price for a great machine. About the whole i5 series, I wouldnt worry about it too much for the time being as you'll be paying a premium on the latest technology that you really dont need on a notebook right now.

Hope that helps :)

Oh and regarding the e-bay sellers, stay well clear of them. your best just paying through alienware or going to US personally and getting it. There are hidden taxes that arent included in the price they sell at and if you get caught not paying them, then you can end up with a laptop, and hassle that is much more than they would have been if you'd just bought from alienware.

I just ordered finally, but ended up getting the Core i5, with 4Gb RAM, and 500GB HDD! Paid £929, using the Dell EPP Discount giving 8% off £1200+.. (I ordered two).

I thought the 500GB upgrade was expensive at £85, but thought what the hell, hopefully this laptop will stop me constantly buying and selling cheap laptops which were never quite fast enough/ergonomic enough etc. Hopfully this one will be for keeps... We'll see when it arrives at the end of this month!

I bought it during the same time when it was launched and it cost me abt £628 incl Quidco with the tact mouse (which I sold for £55 on ebay) and then returned it after abt a months usage cause it crashed when I turned on Turbo mode from BIOS. It was an issue which Alienware didnt wanted to accept. They even told me not to enable that feature as it voids warranty.

Excellent piece of kit imho. Which reminds me, Dell never came back to me asking em for the missing mouse. Lol.
