Alienware’s M11x Gaming “Netbook” Will Cost $US800

What do you get when you mix a dedicated GPU, 50FPS Crysis gaming, a Core 2 Duo, an 11-inch screen, and a $US800 price tag? An absurd(ly powerful) little laptop, which I – and apparently Alienware – am not comfortable calling a netbook.

We first saw the M11x back at CES where we were told it'd hit the market in about a month, for under $US1000 dollars. Well, a tipster sent Engadget a little bit of info scraped from the HTML of the notnetbook's official product page, which is currently holding some kind of "Guess the Price" sweepstakes:

The Alienware M11x, with over 6.5 hours of battery life and weighing under 4.5 lbs. will start at an amazing $US799! Leave it to the folks at Alienware to enable truly mobile performance gaming at an affordable price.

Er, contest's still open, folks!
