Tech Industry: Alienware M11X

1:22 /

At CES 2010, Scott Stein checks out the M11X, a thin-and-light gaming laptop from Alienware.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Hi I'm Scott Stein and we're here at CES 2010. Now I love playing video games and I play them on the consoles, the problem with PC games a lot of the times is there's quite a bit of an investment needed to get on board to get a gaming laptop and they can also be quite bulky. One of the really fascinating announcements is there's the Alienware M11x laptop which is almost the size, I mean a little bit bigger and bulkier of thin-and-light or a gaming net book as it were. It has an 11.6 inch screen and a core 2 quad processor inside but it has switchable and video graphics that shift over to a high gear to give you about two hours of high intensity gaming play but 6 1/2 hours of battery life according to Alienware if you're not in gaming mode. What's nice about that is it also comes in at under one thousand dollars, models should be as low as 799 which means that this really goes into a range that previously was available for thin-and-lights that didn't even have discreet graphics. Also, Alienware has added a lot of their classic design, the funky rainbow colored LED lights and it has a number of display options, display port, HGMI and VJ all built in on the side so you can connect to a number of large monitors and play games when on the go so you don't have to be stuck to just an 11.6 inch screen. I'm Scott Stein and this is the Alienware M11x laptop. ^M00:01:18 [ Music ] ^M00:01:21
