The M15x is said to be the most powerful 15in gaming laptop that Alienware has ever created; but anyone who is in the market for a powerful notebook -- not just gamers -- should consider it. It has a 15.6in, Full HD screen, runs an Intel Core i7 CPU (up to 3.2GHz) and supports up to 8GB of DDR3 1333MHz RAM. You also get a 500GB, 7200rpm hard drive (a 256GB solid-state drive is an option). Most importantly for gamers, it can be configured with a 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M graphics card. Around the sides you get USB 2.0, eSATA, Gigabit Ethernet, D-Sub (VGA), FireWire, DisplayPort, an SD card reader, an ExpressCard slot, and dual audio output ports.
