Out of this world: Alienware launches its fastest notebooks and PCs

New Alienware systems to be overclocked and liquid cooled

Alienware Area 51 ALX

At the extreme high-end of the Alienware range is the Area 51 ALX. It has an aluminium exterior and a motorised front door, as well as active venting. The top-end ALX configuration includes an Intel Core i7 975 Extreme CPU that’s overclocked to 3.86GHz. In the graphics department you get dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 graphics cards, for a total of four GPUs. These lets you do crazy things like hook up three flat panel monitors so that you can really immerse yourself in your games. The tri-monitor setup isn't part of the Alienware offering, but you can purchase three separate monitors and hook it up yourself.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
