UK gets Alienware M11x pricing details, superior base model [Video]

February 2, 2010 at 3:55 pm

Alienware M11xThe UK pricing of the 11.6-inch Alienware M11x gaming netbook has finally been released. As in the US, Dell UK is allowing you to configure your own model with prices starting at £749. Considering that US prices start at $799, it looks like the UK consumer is getting stuffed again, although that amount does include VAT & delivery.

All models come with a 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M graphics, an 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) display and a 1.3MP webcam. However, there are also some slight differences in the base specs compared to the US model. You get the same 1.3GHz SU4100 Intel ULV processor, but you get faster RAM (2GB DDR3 at 1066MHz) and a faster/higher capacity hard drive (320GB at 7,200rpm).

Dell is also quoting an 8.5 hour battery life from its 8-cell 63Whr lithium battery, rather than the 6.5 hour battery life quoted by Dell US. Although, this 6.5 hour quote may have been a typo. Bluetooth is also standard ($20 extra in the US) as well as Wi-Fi (b/g/n). Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit rounds up the base specs.

In terms of options, the faster 1.3Ghz Core2 Duo SU7300 processor will cost you an extra £40. Opting for 4GB of memory will cost £80 extra ($50 in US), or you could always go the full hog and spend £380 for 8GB of RAM ($350 in US). A 500GB 7200RPM HDD will cost an extra £30 ($150 in US) and a 256GB SSD will set you back £300 ($570 in US).

I couldn’t find any shipping information. On the face of it, it looks like it may start shipping straight away. For those wondering, the M11x also supports driving an external monitor through HDMI, DisplayPort or VGA. The NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M supports resolutions up to 2560×1200. You can check out a couple of video walkthroughs from the guys at Dell below.

Thanks Chris!

    I know it doesn’t have to be too high. You don’t want to open too many of these types accounts, not at least at the same time. I would ecaournge you to pay for items with your own cash, instead of on credit (debt). The fact that you had a previous bankruptcy tells me you know the pitfalls of credit (debt).

    I’ve been watching for hours. I think they are uncuoscinos. They never move. But I’m watching as long as electricity and Internet last during this cold snowy blast that has drowned us in snow in the Pacific NW. Love to know how you integrated this into your blog!
