Alienware M14x pops up once more

14” Dell gaming laptop to feature Sandy Bridge i7 processor and NVIDIA GT 555M graphics

It’s been close to 3 weeks since we last heard about the Alienware M14x and M18x, but thanks to a recent review by Chinese tech-website, the M14x picture has gotten a lot clearer. According to the first part of the review, the M14x appears to have received the same Sandy Bridge upgrades as its M11x and the M17x counterparts and will also come with NVIDIA graphics. Unfortunately, there is now word about the 18" Alienware laptop yet.

Dell’s Alienware laptops have usually offered top of the line performance and the M14x looks to be the same. According to the review, the laptop will be powered by a Sandy Bridge Core i7-2820QM processor, an NVIDIA GT555M GPU, and up to a 750GB 7200RPM hard drive. The 14” laptop will come with a 1366x768 pixel resolution display and 2GB of RAM but can be upgraded  to feature a Full HD (1920x1080 pixel) display and 4GB of RAM. For those looking to further upgrade their laptop, it should be customizable with another 2 solid-state drives to increase storage and performance.

Of course, no Alienware laptop is complete without neon lighting for the keyboard and speakers, and the M14x doesn’t appear to have been spared. The notebook should be available in Red and Black Nebula colors and will also have Klipsch speakers similar to the M17x.

For those that may find the M11x too small and the M17x too big, Dell should be providing an alternative option in the M14x. Unfortunately, the official announcement about the laptop has yet to be made, but with reviews popping up online we shouldn’t have to wait too long now.
