Hardware Secrets has every right to be impressed by the new Alienware M17x, as it seems that Dell hasn't cramped their out of this world designs.  According to their link the highest end laptop you can configure has

"two GeForce GTX 280M, Core 2
Extreme QX9300, 8 GB DDR3-1333, two 256 GB SSD's in RAID0, 1920x1200
17" display, Blu-Ray player, TV tuner, Windows Vista Ultimate) and the
price is obviously jaw-dropping: USD 5,600. OUCH!"



You can bet that this laptop weighs more than 12lbs and has a battery life best measured in seconds, making one wonder why you don't just go with a SFF PC, as we opined in this weeks podcast.

"Alienware, now part of Dell, is a company focused on high-end gaming systems and last week they released what they

are calling "the most powerful 17" gaming laptop in the universe". And they are not kidding: this laptop features

three graphics processing units, a feature not found even on most desktops."
