Overview
  • 1Description

The Alienware M18x 18.4" Notebook Computer (Stealth Black) from Dell provides the ultimate gaming experience for people on the go. The system features a dedicated graphics system. The nVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M graphics card utilizes 1.5GB of dedicated memory for the graphics-intensive visuals of PC games.

Impressive graphics would be meaningless without a high-end screen and this Alienware notebook does not disappoint. Featuring a gorgeous 18.4" widescreen display, it is backlit with LED lamps. LED lamps brighten faster, use less power and provide better image quality than their CCFL counterparts. The screen has a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is also the standard for HDTVs. The 1920 x 1080 native resolution allows for native 1080p high-definition video playback.

The system is powered by a quad-core 2.2GHz Intel Core i7-2670QM processor, which can also be overclocked up to 3.1GHz with Intel's Turbo Boost technology. The processor is supported with 8GB of DDR3 RAM to maximize multitasking. The slot-loading SuperMulti DVD burner makes it easy to install PC games while the 750GB 7200rpm SATA hard drive ensures that you have enough space for them.

For online multiplayer, you'll need to connect to the Internet. This Alienware notebook provides a 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 jack for a fast wired connection. However, seeing as how this is a gaming notebook, you'll probably make more use of the 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi network as well as Bluetooth 3.0+HS technology for all your peripherals, such as a gaming mouse or joystick.

As a high-end gaming notebook, you'll want to keep your Alienware notebook safe and secure. The included free 30-day trial of McAfee SecurityCenter, which has anti-virus, anti-spyware as well as a firewall, does exactly that. Also, a Kensington lock slot prevents a stranger (or suspicious roommate) from walking away with your Alienware notebook while you're away from it.

With this Alienware notebook, you can all the added benefits of the Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) operating system. Enjoy a beautifully designed user interface and minimize the number of compatibility issues with PC games you might otherwise get with a different operating system.

AlienTouch Touchpad Controls allows you to customize your touchpad's sensitivity to prevent accidental contact. You can also activate virtual scrolling to enable vertical as well as horizontal scrolling with just a touch. AlienFusion Power Management ensures that you decide when you need maximum performance or when to scale back power for less intensive applications for better battery life and energy efficiency. Express yourself with AlienFX Lighting Controls by choosing from an array of color and transition effects to assign to four distinct zones, including the keyboard, touchpad and more
