The Alienware M17 is a gaming laptop that attempts to deliver a reasonable price and quality gaming hardware in the same package. It comes with some pricier configuration options that make it more of a high end gaming laptop, such as quad-core CPUs and dual ATI GPUs. The Alienware M17 offers dual 500GB hard drives in RAID 0 or RAID 1 configurations to store and protect files. This means the laptop can hold over 150 games, 250 full-length movies or 250,000 songs. With all this data to protect the Alienware M17 offers free fall sensor technology that senses when the laptop is suffering a fall so it can protect as much as it can. It comes with the Windows Vista 64 bit operating system, necessary to take full use of 4 GB of memory and run any games at maximum capacity.
