Alienware Area-51 m9750

Upgrading its top-end notebooks, Alienware today at last released the Area-51 m9750 first previewed in January. The 17-inch desktop replacement is the first to combine dual 512MB graphics chips with mobile Core 2 Duo chips, the company claims: a top-spec version offers two GeForce Go 7950 GTX chipsets paired together in SLI and Intel's CPUs up to 2.33GHz, guaranteeing gaming-class performance better even than some of the newest notebooks. Avid media viewers can also load up on storage with dual 250GB hard disks or a Blu-Ray burner for HD movies.

Systems are listed as of today and start at $2,099 with a basic 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB of memory, 80GB of disk space, and one of the high-end NVIDIA graphics processors. Adding the second graphics element or the Blu-Ray drive increases the price by $600; beyond CPUs and storage, options exist for a TV tuner with a remote, up to 4GB of memory, and a sharper 1920x1200 display.
