The Alienware M18x is a laptop from Dell designed specifically for game playing. The latest in the line of Alienware gaming laptops is expected to be released in the second quarter of 2011. With a huge 18.4" screen and various graphics and memory options, this laptop is built to maximise gaming potential and enjoyment.

The display is expected to have 3D capability with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The display features a WLED and Truelife Glossy panel to give clarity to gaming graphics. The M18x comes with Nvidia GeForce GTX 460M graphics card as standard but is upgradable to include a dual AMD Radeon HD 6970M graphics package. This gaming laptop has 4GB DDR3 RAM built-in and is upgradable to 32GB and features an expandable hard drive too - from 320GB to 750GB. Including the same Intel i7 core processor as featured on the Dell Alienware M17x, this M18x has more memory and a larger hard drive, and will have a 12 cell battery (instead of 9 cell battery) for longer gaming action between charges.  With the Windows 7 operator system as standard, this laptop is both functional and stylish whilst focussing on the pleasure of video game playing.
