Alienware rolls its first ready-made Area-51 notebook

Alienware m5550 QuickShip

Alienware today reversed its old habit of producing custom-order systems with the m5550 QuickShip, a version of its mainstream Area-51 notebook specially made for students and others who want their systems immediately. The special version ships within two days thanks to a fixed feature set that Alienware hopes will satisfy most any user: the system arrives with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of memory, and a 128MB Mobility Radeon X1400 fast enough to drive many 3D games as well as Vista Ultimate.

The stock 15.4-inch system will also carry a 160GB hard disk, 802.11g Wi-Fi, and a DVD burner. Alienware sells the computer for $1,699 in a fixed configuration but continues to offer the customizable version of the m5550 for as little as $999 with lower specs.
