Alienware M18x is Now Shipping

Ryan Whitwam

Sure, the M15x might have gone AWOL , but Dell has been kind enough to finally ship the beastly M18x to interested parties. This is not your run of the mill laptop. This is a full scale desktop replacement that weighs in at 16 pounds. The upside of all that mass is the amazing hardware packed into the unit.

The base model of the M18x has at its heart, a Core i7 clocked at 2GHz and a GeForce GTX460m. If that just won't cut it, Dell offers options all the way up to a Core i7 overclocked to 4GHz and dual 2GB Radeon 6970m GPUs. All models have the same 18.4-inch 1920x1080 screen. Pricing starts at $1999, and can end up north of $6000.

It's a real serious gaming machine that we hesitate to call portable, but it's still lighter than your gaming tower (and probably faster too). Anyone thinking a gaming laptop is the way to go?
