That's not a terrible way to... Read more...

We found Alienware's M11x to be one-in-a-million when we reviewed it earlier in the year, but there's always room for improvement. Even Alienware recognizes that, and they've done quite a bit of improving with the latest edition of the planet's smallest hardcore gaming notebook. The new M11x still retains the tiny 11"...

When it comes to the business of building PCs, true innovation is hard to find. There are exceptions—HP had the Blackbird 002, Alienware designs its own enclosures, and there's always the Thermaltake Level 10—but most companies aren't willing to take the financial risk that's part and parcel of designing new and different products....
