Alienware M11x R3 gaming laptop specs leaked, report claims

Details about Dell's next update for its Alienware RD gaming notebook have reportedly leaked.

Alleged specs for Dell's Alienware M11x ultraportable gaming laptop, expected in the US in early April, have been leaked. According to sources at the site Dell News and More, this will be the third revision of the 11.6-inch-screen laptop and it will share the current R2 laptop's design while offering the new Intel Sandy Bridge processors.

Other reported upgrades include a larger hard drive (now up to 750GB, from 500GB), faster memory (up to 8 GB of 1333 MHz RAM from 800MHz), and options for 3G LTE or WiMax 4G mobile broadband.

Reported specs:

· CPU: Intel Core i5-2537M (1.4GHz to 2.3GHz), Core i7-2617M (1.5GHz to 2.6GHz) and Core i7-2657M (1.6GHz to 2.7GHz)

· Memory: 1GB/2GB/4GB/8GB from 1333MHz DDR3

· Display: 11.6 inch, 1366×768 pixels, TrueLife glossy, White-LED backlight

· HDD Options: 250GB, 320GB, 500GB, 640GB, 750GB, SATA 2, 7200rpm or 256GB SSD

· Wireless: WWAN 3G LTE / WiMAX 4G

· Battery: 8-Cell 63 WHr

· Colors: Red / Black, Soft Touch

The big question, besides price, for this gaming laptop is what kind of graphics processor will be available: whether the GPU will be discrete, and if Dell will be sticking with the current version's switchable NVIDIA mobile discrete graphics chip or switch to AMD.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
