New Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processor options combine with the latest NVIDIA Optimus technology to provide the ultimate, High-Definition mobile gaming experience. Intel’s Turbo Boost further accelerates Core i5 and Core i7 performance when demand peaks. All the Alienware M11x processors are also over-clockable beyond the standard specification for maximum performance.
 
The powerful NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M provides 1GB of discrete, fast HD graphics performance for more realistic gaming environments and virtual worlds playing at high 720p resolution at 30 frames per second. Built-in NVIDIA PhysX technology propels hyper-realistic game play on the M11x that shows every dynamic cause-and-effect detail.

NVIDIA Optimus technology switches seamlessly and transparently from the integrated Intel HD Graphics Media Accelerator to GeForce GT 335M discrete graphics when extra performance is demanded by visually intensive applications. Switching to integrated graphics during less visually demanding applications, like word processing or e-mail exchange, extends battery life.
 
“The Alienware M11x is the perfect go-anywhere laptop for people who want to play today’s most popular and demanding games in high definition.  With the new Core i7 processor and high-performance discrete graphics that automatically kick in when needed, gamers get a stunning visual experience and fast-action play wherever they are without sacrificing longer battery life for less intensive activities,” said Walt Mayo, Vice President and General Manager, Dell Consumer Asia. “It’s a challenge to make the world’s best 11-inch gaming laptop even better, but we’ve done it.”
 
The Alienware M11x, available in soft-touch Stealth Black or Lunar Shadow, retains its svelte 4.4-pound figure and distinctive Alienware design with built-in AlienFX illuminated keyboard and laser-engraved user nameplate. It ships with a choice of 64-bit Windows 7 operating systems installed.
