Alienware M11x R3 gaming laptop specs leaked, report claims

Details about Dell's next update for its Alienware RD gaming notebook have reportedly leaked.

Alleged specs for Dell's Alienware M11x ultraportable gaming laptop, expected in the US in early April, have been leaked. According to sources at the site Dell News and More, this will be the third revision of the 11.6-inch-screen laptop and it will share the current R2 laptop's design while offering the new Intel Sandy Bridge processors.

Other reported upgrades include a larger hard drive (now up to 750GB, from 500GB), faster memory (up to 8 GB of 1333 MHz RAM from 800MHz), and options for 3G LTE or WiMax 4G mobile broadband.

Reported specs:

· CPU: Intel Core i5-2537M (1.4GHz to 2.3GHz), Core i7-2617M (1.5GHz to 2.6GHz) and Core i7-2657M (1.6GHz to 2.7GHz)

· Memory: 1GB/2GB/4GB/8GB from 1333MHz DDR3

· Display: 11.6 inch, 1366×768 pixels, TrueLife glossy, White-LED backlight

· HDD Options: 250GB, 320GB, 500GB, 640GB, 750GB, SATA 2, 7200rpm or 256GB SSD

· Wireless: WWAN 3G LTE / WiMAX 4G

· Battery: 8-Cell 63 WHr

· Colors: Red / Black, Soft Touch

The big question, besides price, for this gaming laptop is what kind of graphics processor will be available: whether the GPU will be discrete, and if Dell will be sticking with the current version's switchable NVIDIA mobile discrete graphics chip or switch to AMD.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
