Overview
  • 1Description

When you want to get your game on, you need to consider a gaming-centric laptop like the black Alienware M14x AM14RX2-7494BK 14" Gaming Notebook Computer. It has the bells and whistles that gamers look for when buying a gaming laptop.

It starts with the 2.5GHz Intel Core i5-3210M dual-core processor (which can be overclocked to 3.1 GHz) with a 3MB cache. Add to that 6GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM, and you've added some muscle to the engine. Top it off with a 500GB 7200 rpm hard drive, and you have a solid base for a gaming machine.

To show off that power you'll need a kick in the graphics. The Alienware M14x provides a 14" HD widescreen LED-backlit display with a native 1366 x 768 resolution. The graphics card running this display is an NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with Optimus Technology and 2GB of discrete RAM. Add a pair of integrated speakers running Creative Sound Blaster Recon3Di with THX TruStudio Pro Software and you have a multimedia powerhouse.

You're connected by a wide range of ports and terminals. From USB 3.0 to the VGA, HDMI and mini DisplayPort, you can watch the visuals on your screen or on a larger monitor or HDTV. You'll also appreciate the 9-in-1 Media Card reader with SD, SDIO, SDXC, SDHC, MS, MS Pro, MMC, MSXC and xD-Picture support. There's also an integrated 8x SuperMulti DVD+-R/RW slot-loading optical drive, along with a webcam and microphone.

Gaming online won't be a problem. The communication network in this machine includes integrated 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet, Wireless-N and Bluetooth connectivity. Even the keyboard features some nice backlight enhancements - the AlienFX illuminated keyboard allows up to 512 billion distinct lighting combinations, and you can personalize the lighting to respond to in-game events. It also includes a multi-touch touchpad with gesture controls.

When it's time to get your game on, make sure you're prepared with a powerful processor, decent graphics card and other amenities that will make your experience a pleasant one.

The Power to Play
Amazing graphics bring your games to life. Discrete GDDR5 mobile graphics - the most advanced graphics memory available - and Intel Core processors provide enhanced performance in this laptop.

Experience Games and Movies on the Big Screen
Enjoy your Full HD media on the big screen with the Alienware M14x via the HDMI 1.4 or Mini DisplayPort or put yourself in the middle of the action on a 3D capable external display with NVIDIA 3D Vision technology (3D viewing requires optional NVIDIA 3DTV Play software, a NVIDIA compliant 3D TV with 3D glasses and HDMI cable. Wireless 3D gameplay through WirelessHD requires a WirelessHD transmitter module and WirelessHD receiver bundle (sold separately).

Customize your system with game themes that respond to many in-game events with unique lighting effects to complete your immersion.
