    I usually hate alienware stuff... but after the pain of lugging my PC home over the hols so i could continue gaming this is genuinely interesting.

    The key factors have to be weight and price, I guess. Less than $1000 is sounding good on the price side, and I reckon if they've kept the weight to no more than 2Kg it could be a winner

    Battery life? If they sacrificed battery size to keep the whole machine's size and weight down, we may be dealing with yet another machine that can't last an hour unplugged when doing what it's supposed to do (gaming).

    The notebook has switchable graphics. You can use the integrated graphics when not gaming.

    Here are some more details in this thread I started:

    http://forums.hexus.net/small-form-f...g-machine.html

    The graphics card is not too bad TBH considering the size of the notebook!

    It is supposed to have upto 6 and half hours of battery life although the battery is not removable.

    GeForce GT 335M GPU

    hmm
    Another rebrand? or an actual DX11 product. Actually. I'm gonna say no DX11. At best DX10.1.

    Their latest rebrands dont even do dx10.1 according to their own pages.

    /me shakes head.

    :edit: And neither does this one. From their own spec pages.

    Microsoft DirectX 10
    OpenGL 2.1

    Not too bad an idea, although it's a niche market really. I do like the idea of a portable gaming machine with decent battery life.

    Really surprised about the cost, if it comes in under $1000 (probably $999), as Alienware stuff tends to be cost a good chunk.

    If they made one without the bling lights I'd even consider it.

    I would hope not. I reckon it will work out at about £850 which isnt all bad for a full blown CULV gaming laptop in an ultra portable body. If its any more than that it will be a bit dissapointing.
