*Official* Current/Future Alienware M11x Owner's Club - Page 2

Thread Starter 
@Kouki: Nice, that is the setup I will most likely get. I am still torn between whether to get 320gb Stata 7200rpm or a SSD...Several questions....Can I put any 2.5" form factor SSD in it? Would it be cheaper to get it as an option when I buy the laptop? Or should I wait a while until SSD is cheaper, then get high quality series and install myself? Hmmmmm....

@rmp459: Core2duo is light power consumption which allows it to get the 2-3hr gaming and 6+ hr normal battery use. I do agree that this could have been upped, maybe to at least 1.6-1.8 stock.

800mhz ram isnt too bad considering it IS DDR3(I have 1333mhz in my desktop so I consider it an even cut down for size).

The lack of drive is not a big deal, netbooks dont have em! Why not just get a usb one? Idk, I see optical drives reducing in popularity in the future because of digital stuff like steam etc.

The 11" screen adds to portability and form factor, otherwise it would be a standard size notebook and not the advertised "ultra-portable" gaming notebook. It DOES have a port right on the side(VGA not DVI booo...) and I plan on connecting it to my 22" lcd.

I feel alienware has targeted the group of people who need portability seen in ultra-lite series notebooks and netbooks, but also want to game a little bit. That is definitely me!
This is perfect for me as an incoming college student but I DO have to agree with you that things could always be changed.
The extra power boost would be nice but honestly, battery power comes first for me because it's primary use will be for school(future Comp Sci Major wooo! )

They should have made a 14" ~5.5 pounds with an i5 and the same graphics chip
How is it a complete let down? They said they were making a netbook that can game, and guess what they did? Make a NETBOOK that can game.

Clearly you missed the point of this. Netbook + gaming power = M11x.

Ok, I have changed my mind about the M11x. There is a place for it in my life. I will be ordering one soon as I get enough cash (probably not until March though) and I'll be getting the same configuration. Thanks for the savings info! Hopefully it will still be good in a month from now lol.

I plan on going completely Alienware, trading my desktop up to a M17x over the summer when I can work and get more cash.

Glad that I could help ya out!

Yea, I dont plan on ordering for a little while because I am still finishing up my senior year. Probably in the next few months, ive started saving already. I know that the $50 off coupon is valid until June, and there should be an EPP and/or student discount available to you then too. I am just praying that there will be more $100 off coupons...those are sweet hahaa. I wish I could order now, get that decked out config for about $800...unheard of!

I see this thingy as more of a bridge between all three...part gaming, part notebook, part netbook...I call for a brainstorm of a new name for it! Hmm, how about "NoteGamingNetbook"?

The SU7300 can be overclocked to 1.6GHz in the BIOS. This also makes the ram run at 1066.

I'm still going to get one because I just want one that badly. Hey Synec, do you think that coupon code you gave will work for Canadians? If not, I might need you as a connection

Not sure if it will, you can give it a try though! Replied to your pm btw. Yea I would say that little overclock is a nice perk lol. I wonder if you could take it any farther...1.8ghz?
