Alienware's New Gaming Laptop May Burn Holes Through Space, Time

This is Alienware's new m17x gaming laptop. To give you an idea of what's going to be inside it, you should know that it weighs 12 pounds, and costs an absolute minimum $1800.

We say "absolute minimum" because there are hardware options for the thing that may prove too tempting to pass up on. Like, in addition to the dual 1GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 280M graphics cards and Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad-Core CPU, you can cram as much as 8GB of DDR3 RAM into its guts. You can also opt to have either a 1TB HDD or 512GB SSD for storage. And you can top all that off with a Blu-Ray drive, which should look rather nice on the machine's 1920x1200 display.

As with most Alienware gear, the unit itself won't look quite as nice, but then, you're paying for brute force here, not aesthetics.
