Alienware m15x first 15-inch with Quadro FX 3600M

AWare m15 Quadro FX 3600M

Alienware this afternoon turned its m15x gaming notebook into a 3D modeling workstation with the introduction of an option for NVIDIA's top-end Quadro FX 3600M chipset. The portable is the first 15.4-inch notebook anywhere to hold the graphics chip and uses the extra headroom for much faster work rendering 3D effects, CAD, or other projects in DirectX 10 or OpenGL 2.1 without having to resort to a 17-inch desktop replacement or else a slower graphics chipset.

Adding an FX 3600M lifts the price of the base $1,499 m15x by $600 without changing the base performance selections of a 2.1GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB of memory and a 120GB hard drive. Alienware has also added a recommended system for high-end mobile use at a $3,445 price for a 2.6GHz Core 2 Duo, a high-resolution 1920x1200 LCD, 4GB of memory and a 250GB disk. Models equipped with the upgrade should start shipping August 5th if ordered today.
