Intel's Core i7 processor kicks ass, as we already know. Alienware is busting out an update to its M15x laptop today with the new mobile version of i7, which is to be officially unveiled today at Intel's Developer Conference.
The 15-inch Alienware M15x, which was introduced back in January, is a mobile gamer's paradise. You now have a choice of the speediest Intel mobile processors, including a 1.6 GHz Intel Core i7 720QM, a 1.73GHz Intel Core i7 820QM, and finally the world's fastest mobile processor, a 2GHz Intel Core i7 920XM. The illuminating wonder of a notebook will be configurable with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M GPU (with 1GB of RAM) and up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM to take on the harshest of games.
As for aesthetics the main chassis appears the same, though you can now get it in metallic red, silver or black. And for those that love to game after dark the entire body lights up customizable color accents.
Shockingly the price is actually pretty reasonable for a high end gaming system. It will start at $1,500 and it will be configurable on Dell.com. It will ship for now with Vista and with Windows 7 come October 22. [Alienware]
