Dell launches new 11-inch laptop
Dubai, March 31, 2010
Leading computer manufacturer Dell has unveiled the much anticipated powerful 11-inch Alienware M11x laptop at the recent CES 2010, the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow.
The Alienware M11x, which won praise from the gaming community, harnesses the gaming power of a 15-inch laptop in an 11-inch design weighing in at just under 4.5 pounds.
Starting from Dh4499 ($1225), the ultra-compact M11x is the perfect on-the-go gaming companion that will delight gamers and students and doesn’t weigh down a backpack, a statement said.
Alienware M11x features the Intel Core2 Duo processor (1.3GHz, 800 MHz, 3 MB), 1GB GDDR3 Nvidia GeForce GT 335M card, up to 8GB DDR33 memory, 256GB4 solid state drive, Windows 7 Ultimate with a battery life of 8.5 hours.
“Among all the exciting products that debuted at CES we firmly believe that the Alienware M11x stood out because it packs an unprecedented amount of horsepower into a small form factor, making real gaming possible in a whole new segment,” said Rene Haas, general manager of notebook products at Nvidia.
“It goes without saying that the fastest sub-12 inch laptop in the universe needs a powerful GPU and we are thrilled that Alienware selected the NVIDIA GeForce GT335M to power the Alienware M11x,” Haas added.
Intel’s Doug Parker, director, Americas Marketing, said: “The Alienware M11x is an exciting evolution in the PC gaming segment. Intel is thrilled to see the new M11x make a successful splash in the market.”
“It recently won CNET’s best gaming platform at CES. Even more exciting the M11x is powered by an Intel ultra-low voltage cpu – which makes the system very thin and compact with an 11.6 inch screen. A real testament to Alienware ingenuity and Intel performance.”
“The extraordinary performance of the Alienware M11x redefines, in a big way, the capabilities of small form factor laptops,” said Amer Husaini, general manager, MEA consumer business.
“By combining this level of graphics performance, with over-clockable CPUs in a truly mobile product, Dell once again demonstrates its commitment to making superior technology accessible to all,” Husaini added. – TradeArabia News Service
