Reviews for the Alienware S-4 m5500

Alienware M5500
Source: Driverheaven English
Based on the size and specification of the M5500 Alienware obviously went out to create one of the fastest 15 inch notebooks available. Using a high spec Pentium M and the Mobility X1600 almost guarantees excellent performance. The laptop could have been let down by a bad choice on the other components though and a 5400rpm drive or inadequate memory would really kill performance. Thankfully the system is available with up to 2Gb of memory (ours featured 1Gb). The bundle provided with the system is (as always) very good and the personalised folder of information, t-shirt and mouse mat are nice touches. The laptop arrives very well packaged and there is almost no chance that it will be damaged in transit.
