Reviews for the Alienware Sentia m3200

76% Alienware scores big with first ultraportable laptop
Source: PC World English
Alienware's smallest notebook yet, the Sentia m3200, offers a bright 12.1-inch wide-screen display, a good case design, and zippy performance. Only its slightly disappointing keyboard should give you pause. (That and maybe the big alien head on the lid.) Using a 2-GHz Pentium M 760 processor and 1GB of RAM, the Sentia earned an impressive WorldBench 5 score of 92, placing in the top four of our current group of ultraportables. At $1525 (as of 2/16/06), our test unit included an 80GB hard drive; however, the 4.8-pound Sentia m3200 beats most thin-and-light competitors with the option of a capacious 160GB drive, which costs $298 more than the drive in our configuration.

Intel Pentium M: With Intel chip set (855 or 915) and Intel WLAN also available with the name Centrino (name for the package).
In the comparison very fast per megahertz and very modest with weaknesses in floating point operations.
It is also available as a low voltage version with very small current consumption.

12.1":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.9 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
