View Full Version : Alienware m11x: Who has one?
01-22-2012, 11:05 PM
Due to school and work, I barely have time to play games but would like to get back into pc gaming since I have a huge steam library. I was looking into something like Asus G73 or G74 but figured I would rather get something a little more light and much, much cheaper. So I am looking into Alienware m11x R1 or R2. I am looking to play current gen games and do not really care for next generation since I am willing to spend around $400-600. Primarily SC2, CS GO, Skyrim and BF3 would be a nice bonus. Current owners, do you like yours and what games can you play, and have you overclocked yours? Thanks.

I have a Alienware M14x that I won from a Box Top Education competition. My oldest kids plays on it the most. She plays:
Marvel Superhero Squad Online
World Of Warcraft: Free Starter
Dungeon and Dragons Online
and a host of flash games from Newsground and Armor Games.
It can handle a lot I benched it with 3DMarks and Nexuiz and it's a great machine. We will probably never overclock ours.

You might check the m11x forum at Notebook Review. (http://forum.notebookreview.com/alienware-m11x/) There's a ton of info there. I have an m14x and it handles everything I've thrown at it so far and the 900p resolution is really nice. The m11x obviously not as powerful, but for it's size you can't match the power with anything else.

I have the m11x R1 and i love it. sure its not the best but it plays most of my steam library. Currently i play alot of SWTOR, but i play TF2, portal 2, LFD2, starcraft 2, and dungeon defenders hell almost everything on it.
most people will tell you the thing is trash but i love mine. Its portable, and reliable for on the go pc gaming. I dont go all crazy with it, just use it to play some simple pc games.
