For most, Alienware's AlienNetwork debut
was somewhat of a letdown. Nevertheless, at least one good thing did come out of the whole event, and that's the availability of the m17x
gaming monster. This 17-inch beast of a laptop finally has its own dedicated page, and yes, you can get your order in starting today. Packed within, you'll find your choice of Intel Core 2 Duo processor, twin GPUs for that sweet SLI action, a WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) display, up to 4GB of DDR2 RAM, oodles of hard drive space, a dual-layer DVD writer (or optional Blu-ray burner), enough ports for you and your cousin and a 12-cell battery that'll likely last an hour on a good day. Sadly, this Crysis destroyer starts
at $2,949 (and breaks the $5k mark with ease), and it looks as if units won't start arriving until late May at best.
