Gaming notebooks are an odd breed of machine that tends to be much more expensive than what you could get a higher performance desktop for. However, anyone who has tried to lug a decked out full tower desktop gaming machine to a LAN party can tell you, sometimes giving up performance for portability isn't such a bad thing.
Alienware is a gaming notebook and desktop maker that started as a boutique notebook builder catering to the gamer with the coin to spend on high-end equipment. The company was purchased by Dell and has continued to build gaming machines under its own brand name, unlike the major change that happened to Voodoo when HP gobbled it up.
Today we are going to look at one of the latest gaming notebooks form Alienware called the Area-51 m15x. As you can gather from the name of the gaming rig, it uses a 15-inch screen and packs oodles of performance inside the slick looking chassis. If you have the green and you want a serious 15-inch portable gaming machine, this is the review for you.
