Last year we reviewed Dell's gigantic Alienware M17x gaming laptop. It was a desktop replacement that pulled no punches in terms of performance and features. Now Dell has announced a netbook version of the same laptop, and from the first hand accounts at CES, it's an excellent gaming machine capable of running games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 at solid framerates and visuals.
- 6-7 hours of battery life average
- 2 hours of gaming on battery
- NVidia GT335M Graphics Chip
- Video out via DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA
- 50FPS Crysis, 30FPS Call of Duty on High Settings
- Under $1000, later this year
Here's a video of it running Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. This may be the lightest and most powerful LAN gaming rig out there when it releases.
