Alienware is famous for making some truly lust-worthy gaming notebooks and desktops. Unfortunately, it is also well known for making some machines with very high price tags as well. The Alienware M11x was spied at CES with its gaming chops and small 11-inch LCD.

Engadget reports that Dell has slipped the price of the M11x out within the source code of the M11x micro site. A sentence reading, “The Alienware M11x, with over 6.5 hours of battery life and weighing under 4.5 lbs. will start at an amazing $799! Leave it to the folks at Alienware to enable truly mobile performance gaming at an affordable price” was found in the code.

It’s no surprise that Sony didn’t show off everything it had at CES. They never do. Some of it they save to reveal later. The unannounced Vaio M Series notebook is one of those devices. What you see pictured is a 2004 version of the Vaio M.

The model numbers to keep an eye out for are the VPC-M111AX/B and VPC-M111AX/W. There is virtually no info on this. Nothing on specifications and pricing, but we should hear more soon. All we can do is wait and if you want one, put your money aside.

HP rumored to be readying notebooks with built-in pico projectors

Posted in HP by Shane McGlaun on January 21st, 2010

Pico projectors are good in certain instances, but not so great in others with the tech available today. The universal issue is that the light sources used in the small projectors lack the brightness needed to work well in rooms that are reasonably bright. In the dark, they are pretty good.

New rumors are surfacing that have HP getting ready to unveil a line of notebooks and tablets sometime in 2010 that sport integrated pico projectors. Details on the rumored notebooks are unavailable.

Acer Aspire 3811TZ and 3811TZG are the greenest Acer laptops yet

Posted in Acer by Conner Flynn on January 18th, 2010

Acer’s new Aspire 3811TZ and Aspire 3811TZG are two of the greenest laptops you can get. Not in actual color, but in eco-friendliness. They fall into the company’s Timeline series and both 13.3-inch laptops have the honor of being singled out by Greenpeace as being completely free of nasty materials.

No PVC (otherwise known as polyvinyl chloride) or BFR (brominated flame retardants) here. These are powered by Intel ULV Core 2 Duo CPUs, so they are more power-efficient than most and last longer per charge. Nothing on availability and price, but it’s likely that one will be over a grand and one under.

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on January 18th, 2010

HP has released a line of six new notebooks, but the most interesting is the HP EliteBook 8440w, with a comfortable keyboard, a fast processor and durability. This one is a mobile workstation. In order to be called a workstation, certain software and hardware requirements must be met and the HP EliteBook 8440w meets many of them.

Obviously the one downside to the HP EliteBook 8440w is that it’s heavy at nearly 6 pounds, but it’s solid. It’s strong and rigid and should be able to withstand most of what you can do to it in your daily life.

Dell unveils Vostro V13 notebook

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on December 8th, 2009

vostrov13-sbI really like the Dell Adamo notebooks. Mostly I like them because they are thin and look great. I don’t like the price that Dell wants for the things though. If you are like me and would like to have the svelte looks of the Adamo at a price more like a netbook, the Vostro V13 is for you.

The thin machine is only 0.65-inches thick and weighs 3.5 pounds. Those dimensions are almost dead on for the Adamo machine. The best part is that the V13 will sell for only $450 when it hits the market. For that much money, you get a 13.3-inch screen and a Core 2 ULV processor.

Everki netbook bag turns into lap desk

Posted in Cases by Shane McGlaun on December 7th, 2009

everkicamber-sgThere isn’t much that sets one laptop case apart from another. Typically, as long as you can cram all your gear inside the bag and it protects your machine all is good. Everki has a new case for netbooks called the Camber that has a cool feature.

The feature isn’t more pockets or flashy colors. The special feature is that the case can double as a lap desk for your machine with an angled lid that holds the screen at a higher level for more comfortable use.
