Alienware Updating Laptop Line For 2012, Discontinuing M11x 'Netbook'

The Dell-owned gaming PC label Alienware is making some changes to its line of laptops to account for hardware advances in 2012 (via Engadget). The M14x, M17x, and M18x models will soon benefit from a number of new component options, including NVIDIA 600 series GPUs, PCE Express 3.0 support, a base memory offering of 6GB, and support for mSATA drives. The laptops will also be souped up with i7 processors, but not the next-gen Ivy Bridge ones.

If you're a fan of Alienware products then you may have noticed that one model number is missing from the above lineup: the M11x. The company's so-called "gaming netbook," which sports an 11-inch screen and a "binary graphics" setup that allows users to jump between high-performance and power-saving modes, is going to be discontinued, The Verge reports. According to the hardware manufacturer, the M11x just doesn't fit in with the rest of its hardware offerings anymore.

Speaking as a very happy M11x owner, I'm disappointed to hear this. It's a great piece of tech for the business-minded gamer on the go, between the small size and the binary graphics setup supporting around six hours of battery life in the power-conserving mode. Unfortunately for fans like me, the greater demand is for full-size keyboards and optical drives, two things which the M11x lacks.
