laptops first hopped on the Sandy Bridge bandwagon
when the company's top-of-the-line M17x got Intel's second-gen Core processors, and now it appears the more budget-conscious M11x
may get some Sandy Bridge love too. According to Dell News and more
-- who correctly foretold the 3D screen on the M17x R3
before its January debut, among other things -- the littlest alien laptop is getting your choice of Core i5-2537M, Core i7-2617M, and Core i7-2657M chips ranging in speeds from 1.4GHz to 2.7GHz. Accompanying the new silicon is an optional 750GB HDD (up from 640GB) and an upgrade from 800MHz to speedy 1333MHz RAM. And, to keep you gaming wherever you please, the company will offer optional 3g, LTE, and WiMAX radios as well. Unfortunately, one minor detail didn't make it out -- how much will the extra goodies cost?
