I assume the tablet case folds with the laptop as opposed to having one of those tablets that the screen flips around and then folds back down? I gotta see these pics hehe!

Haha, it folds with the laptop, if anyone turns an M11x into a convertible tablet I would have to see pics too.

It is a nice case though, it has room for a bunch of ID cards or Credit Cards as well as pockets for DVD's and then a Legal Letter size pocket for documents and stuff.

Then the mesh pocket on the bottom is cool because without it you couldn't use the laptop while it was in the case because it would overheat.

I assume the mesh you're referring to is positioned at the "back" of the laptop where the hot air is exhausted? Do you have ventilation available to the bottom of the laptop so it can also intake cool air? Not that big of an issue if you're using it while you're mobile, but it's something to consider.

No, the mesh is where the "intake" portion of the vents are, when the case is open there is nothing touching the back "exhaust" portion.

Basically the mesh is directly under the laptop's intake vent, so the laptop can continue bringing fresh air in.

I'll be adding to the list here soon, just ordered an M15x yesterday! Can't wait!
post #57 of 671
took the leap and got the m11x tonight, still tinkering around and trying to install all my stuff. i'll post pictures later.

this thing does make my macbook look like a giant, but it'll work just fine. can't wait to try a game on it.

i think i'm going to go with the neoprene sleeve that they have for the same price.

i don't really want to run this thing inside of a case i want it out there for the people to envy.

There is just so much awesome going on in the following picture:


Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 includes a GPU accelerated rendering feature called "Mercury Playback Engine". They say it's only supported on the GeForce GTX 285, Quadro CX, Quadro FX 3800, Quadro FX 4800, and Quadro FX 5800 but someone found a pretty simple way to make it work on all Nvidia GTX 200 series cards and higher.

You just use the included "GPUSniffer.exe" in the Premiere Pro CS5 directory to get your GPU name, add it to the "cuda_supported_cards.txt" file, and then change the Multi-display/Mixed-GPU acceleration section of the NVIDIA Control Panel 3D settings for Premiere Pro CS5 to Compatibility Performance Mode!

Now I should be able to do that video editing I hope to use this thing for no problem!



@tiger187126: I added you to the M11x section and I'll link your name to your post containing pictures when you have some time to post it!

Mobile Edge Alienware 11X Neoprene Sleeve


I personally find this laptop sleeve more attractive than the one mentioned up there. It's simpler and looks good
