Reviews for the Alienware Area-51 m5550i

Alienware's m5550i Notebook Means Business
Source: Tom's Guide English
Make no mistake about it, Alienware makes distinctive notebooks that are head turners and the Area-51 m5550i is no exception. It is not a bleeding edge gaming enthused notebook unlike many of its Alienware brethren. In comparison to the monster gaming notebooks from Alienware like the Aurora m9700, this notebook's graphics performance comes off as a bit puny. But as an office notebook, now that's another story. With graphics performance that is superior to many office notebooks and a wickedly powerful CPU this notebook will lay waste to many office applications with ease (in office speak - "improve your overall productivity").

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 is a middle class video card of the 7000 series and suited for games of the year 2006. The performance is very similar to ATI X1600 / X1700. Compared to the desktop 7600 it is clearly slower. Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
T5500:
Slow clocked dual core processor based on the Merom-2M core without virtualization functions.
