Alienware 320GB Notebooks

Alienware today claimed to set records by shipping the first portable systems with 320GB notebook drives. The 15.4-inch Area-51 m1550 as well as the 17-inch Aurora m9700 and Area-51 m9750 now all have the option of using Samsung's latest 320GB, 5400RPM mobile disk to pack desktop-like storage. The 17-inch systems also have dual bays and can store up to 640GB. If completely full, this would allow for as many as 107 average games or 163,000 songs, according to Alienware's estimates.

The two largest notebooks similarly have the option of using the 320GB drive as a companion to a 32GB or 64GB solid-state drive as a compromise between absolute storage and speed. Alienware's custom storage selection is effective immediately and adds $300 to the price of an existing single-drive model, or $500 to move to a model with 640GB in either separate partitions or a RAID array.
