The Alienware m15x
The first thing you notice when you pull the m15x out of the protective fabric sleeve is how fantastic the paint quality is. The Saucer Silver hue on my test unit was glossy and looked like something you would find on a high-end sports car rather than a notebook.
On the right side of the notebook are the FireWire port, HDMI out and a single USB port. Also located on this side are the memory card reader, the PCMCIA slot and a Kingston security cable slot.
On the left side of the m15x, you find the port for the AC adapter, RJ45 jack, two USB ports and the headphone and mic inputs. Also located on this side is the Smart Bay, which in this picture is housing the Blu-ray drive.
The front of the computer has little to see when it is closed.
Flipping the lid up gets us our first glimpse of the touch sensitive controls, track pad, screen and keyboard of the m15x.
The track pad is large and offers a single button that is clickable on the left and right sides. The line around the track pad you see lights up when the AlienFX lighting system is on.
My test system has the upgraded 15-inch LCD with 1920 x 1200 screen resolution.
This shot shows the bottom of the m15x. You can see the requisite alien script writing on the bottom of the system and the custom engraved plate that bears your name and the alien script translation. You can also see the battery in this shot.
