Alienware All Powerful M17x Goes Nebula RedThe M17x is Alienware's current flagship gaming notebook. It features an anodized aluminum shell that is available in a variety of colors, including silver, black, and red, and its 17" LCD sports a covering comprised of a shingle sheet of glass, that runs from edge-to-edge. The M17x also features 'BinaryGFX' technology which gives users have the ability to switch between discrete or integrated graphics and a 'Stealth Mode' in which the discrete graphics cards are turned off and other components throttle down to achieve a 65W power limit. We tested a high-end configuration, complete with an Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9300 processor, dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M GPUs, 8GB of RAM, and 1TB RAID 0 array, and it put up the best benchmarks scores we have seen from a notebook to date...

1 hour of battery life with a dual gpu laptop? I freaking doubt it. How exactly did you conduct the battery tests.

Battery Eater Pro's Classic Test, which taxes the whole system.  Doubt it all you want, that's what it pulled off whether you want to beleive it or not.

I love that the first thing you throw on it is L4D [:D]

It's a good looking laptop for sure. That keyboard flex bothers me a bit. If my $350 netbook has no flex what so ever, I would expect the same for a almost $5000 laptop.

I'm sold. Wish they included a few more games or other tests to further show its abilities.

Powerful Laptop, but I must say, I hate how it looks. Eww.... oh and it's huge. No wonder because it has so many things crammed in.
