Cebit 08: New fast alien


Alienware was showcasing their latest notebook which goes under the name of the Area 51 m15x. This is at the same time the fastest notebook Alienware has ever made. The design is slightly different from what we’ve seen from Alienware so far and it’s really quite stylish. Of course, the glowing alien logo is still there.


The Area 51 m15x comes with a 15,4-inch screen and is available with either 1,440x900 or 1,920x1,200 resolution, with the latter being a cost option. It's powered by Intel’s Core 2 Extreme processors ranging from 2.5 up to 2.8GHz.


Graphics are provided by Nvidia and it’s GeForce 8800 GTX with 512MB of memory. With this system you can order up to 4GB of DDR2 memory running at 667MHz. As far as storage goes, you should be all set, because this baby packs up to 320GB of SATA storage.


A Blu-ray burner is also there and the OS of choice is Vista Ultimate. Everything said and done, this is a great notebook with only one downside – the price. Retail pricing starts at around €2,000; but there will be a cheaper version that’ll set you back around €1,300.
