If you ventured to Alienware.com this morning, you might have noticed the m11x is no longer listed on the site. That's because Alienware refreshed M14x, M17x and M18x but decided to remove the m11x due to demand. I guess gamers still need that extra couple of inches of keyboard space and screen size; although I do feel the m11x was a great LAN notebook. I was able to play Left 4 Dead 2 for 2 straight hours on battery at 60 FPS on it.
The new line of M notebooks will have a graphic upgrade to NVIDIA's 600 series, but no new CPU options. This is a weird time to buy a notebook with Intel's Ivy Bridge on the horizon. It's hard to justify the extra cost now when Ivy Bridge has a lot of promise with battery life. If you're thinking about buying a new gaming notebook, I'd wait until June.
