Could anyone tell me why this is being voted cold? It looks like a good price and the machine has outstanding reviews.

its all the iSheep on here mate - if it ain't got an 'i' in front of its name and is overpriced then they don't like it

CNET Review:

Conclusion
The Alienware M11x is a stunning piece of kit. It's bigger, thicker and more expensive than your average netbook, but it blows everything else out of the water with its astonishing performance. If you want a machine that's comfortable to use, highly portable and brutally quick, there simply is no alternative. Miss it at your peril.

Silly people having no clue to what a beast of a machine this is are voting it cold.

Awesome laptop. Bought it the day it came out. Had fun playing with it. Returned it within 28 days. The price has never fallen since then. Bought it for £619 (-selling bundled mouse, Quidco, dell vouchers) over a year ago.

maybe some people think 500 is a bit ott for a netbook, at 1.3ghz cant see it running games very well or is that a misprint?

Well they are missing the point as this is not a netbook, is has a su3700 core2duo that is much more powerful than the atom also has a 1GB dedicated GPU. The only thing in common with a netbook would be the screen size but even then the screen res is higher than most netbooks

This laptop is now in the clearance section:

Its the graphics card which makes it run games good

Don't forget to choose the faster RAM at no extra cost...

Less than 4.5 lbs (2kg) with over 7 hours of battery life with NVIDIA … Less than 4.5 lbs (2kg) with over 7 hours of battery life with NVIDIA Optimus graphics switching technology.


Little heavy but the 8 cell battery must be a big contributor, but 7 hours battery life with a dedicated graphics cards is good.

What's the real world battery life like?

These units have hinge issues. Buyer be (very) ware. Apart from the hinges, they are quite good. The CPU overclocks somewhat and yet offers the low power features when applicable. The GFX card is ok, for this size its excellent.
I'd say - its a good deal if you can get some clarity on cover regarding the hinges from Dell. Unless you get a 3 year warranty, I'd suggest being very careful with this model.

Great price.

If you like this laptop, and don't need it for gaming, go for its older sister, much cheaper and nicer looking - Acer Aspire 1810TZ (have it)

At first I thought it was a terrible deal for a desktop. THen I noticed it was a laptop and thought it was awesome. Then I checked the screen size and laughed, posted this, and am leaving the thread.

No vote: I guess there may be a few people who want good power on a tiny screen.

Out of the 15 posts you've made in the 1 year and 10 months you've been here, this one must be your most useless one of them all. Well done you.

alienware are in a world of their own very fast laptops shame about looks but whats on the inside is what counts

For a student what would be more suitable... this or Samsung Q330?

Main criteria is: Fairly lightweight, quick, good keyboard, easily transportable, HDMI and excellent battery life.

It plays minesweeper! Make sure you turn down the resolution first though! Don't say I didnt warn you!

I think ppl that voted cold fail to realise this is a extremely good gaming laptop at a netbook size...which is its main purpose.

You cannot really compare as they are different screen sizes. If you are happy with 11.6" go for a Acer Aspire 1810TZ.

i want one

This is such a cool laptop.

Appreciate the quality of Alienware and always have...

But just lately ive been seeing them thinking how bloody awful they look. Personally i think they look too chunky, the design is pretty damn gawdy, and tbh i think it will age very quicky in the looks department. Its a great machine spec and no doubt quality wise... but i couldnt handle looking at it a year down the line and still thinking how nice it looks, or doesnt as the case may be.

Each to their own though and im sure others will dissagree ;-)

Ive just remembered what it reminds me of and would do after time.... now looking at a very old chunky IDM Thinkpad lol.

I'd prefer R3 - need more power than low voltage Core 2 has to offer... Good if you're looking for portable gaming station.

That thing is a piece of crap for gaming lets be honest, C2D 1.3 ghz processor is weak. Gaming just does not work on laptops not to my standard anyhow.

As you don't have 'Gaming' in your list of requirements, I'd say the Sammy is the better option.
Better CPU and the extra couple of inches of screen makes it nicer to use, while not making it too much of a lump to carry around.

However, the low power CPU on the AW may mean it has longer batter life (especially as it comes with an 8 cell battery vs the 6 cell of the Sammy).

Its an Anti Mac, or rather a mirror of a Mac, makes look nice but are badly specc'd for the price whereas this is good specc'd but bad looking for the price

sorry, heres the card:

that seems to be a real good deal, im still considering it lol



Quite the opposite.

Almost everything Apple related on this site is voted cold and shot into oblivion.

The reason people vote cold is because 99% of the users on this site dont have a f**king clue about laptops and PC components. Most of them would think their £99 netbook from Asda is the same as the M11X.

Superb price, will handle gaming at a decent level, battlefield and the likes on low-medium settings (due to the ULV cpu though).

Apart from the fact that posting about a huge 17" brick in a thread about a ultraportable gaming machine is pointless, this machine could easily handle CSS at max settings. The paltry integrated graphics in my 13" MBP from last year could handle CSS at max.

Interesting product, but very niche.

Stylish and looks good quality, yes, but relativity expensive, fast but not scorching, weighter than many 11inchers, so you'd need to be buying it for it's gaming potential above portability.

So only for people who desperately need fast gaming on the move (yes, I know that's what it's designed for, but I'm pointing out that it's really limited to only that, else there are much better choices around).

I'd assume it has HDMI and VGA out to connect it to a bigger screen.

Steer clear. Dodgy hinges will which break after a year, likely to have a power surge, screen is far too small for gaming (even though that's how it's promoted...) and the customer service is beyond terrible.

I agree, it does look retro 'IBM Thinkpad' http://www.laptops-battery.co.uk/images/thinkpad-r50.JPG

Never quite understood the concept for these, a netbook territory sized "gaming" laptop with a ULV CPU. All feels very confusing but a good price for one of these nevertheless.
