Alienware 400GB Laptop

Alienware today said it has helped alleviate the common limitation of desktop replacement portables, a shortage of hard disk space, by introducing an update to its flagship 17-inch laptop. The newest edition of the Aurora m9700 features two 200GB, 4200RPM hard drives similar to those found in the new MacBook Pro. Though these drives are slower than lower-capacity models, the drives can be combined into a single RAID stripe for a contiguous 400GB of storage -- the most ever in a laptop, Alienware says. The company estimates that as many as 100,000 songs or 67 games could fit on an otherwise empty drive. The Turion 64-based computer remains a performance system and includes as many as two 512MB GeForce Go 7900 GS graphics chips. The refreshed m9700 customized with the 400GB option starts at $2,249 and is available in blue, green, or silver.
