Alienware Area-51m 7700 - Gaming Notebook

 

Alienware has a reputation for building hardcore gaming notebooks with killer performance, but can the Area-51m 7700 knock the Rock Xtreme Ti off its perch?

Alienware Area-51m 7700

 

This is a hulking great brute of a notebook. Packed with powerful components and the fastest mobile graphics processor we've seen, the Alienware would rip your arms from their sockets if you dared to carry it around for more than a few minutes.

For gaming the Area-51m 7700 is great. However, we'd have liked a screen that stretches to a higher resolution than 1,440x900 and with better quality, and the WorldBench score of 90 wasn't as high as we expected. As for the price, you're having a laugh.

Alienware Area-51 X-58

 

For such a supposedly secret location, that Area 51 sure does turn out a lot of computers.

Loaded with the absolute latest technology from top to bottom. Infinite connectivity options include six USB, two gigabit Ethernet, one eSATA, and one Firewire port... and that's just in the back. Includes a free hat

Incredibly heavy and imposingly large. Only one optical drive? At this price we'd expect more than a one-year warranty. 1,200 watt power supply ensures the unit doubles as a space heater

Alienware - Area-51m 7700

 

The question is: when is a laptop a 'desktop replacement'? The usual answer is when it is capable of emulating most of the features of a desktop while still remaining comparatively portable. However, the recent boom ...

It looks cool, it's too heavy to carry around, but it's a dream machine for serious gamers who want graphics, speed and performance cranked up to the max. You just have to be willing to pay the equally hefty price tag.

In true Alienware style, the Area 51m is a quality, high-end notebook. Apart from the lid, it's actually the same notebook as the fantastic Pioneer Dr...

Too pricey for what is being offered.

Alienware's Area-51m 7700 Mobile Desktop reviewed

 

Digital Video Editing has a review of Alienware's ridiculously big Area-51m 7700 laptop, appropriately dubbed a "Mobile Desktop". The 13.5 pound (!) laptop has a 17-inch LCD (not widescreen) and a 3.4GHz Intel desktop CPU, which accounts for some of...

Alienware Area 51 Power Desktop

 

This updated version of an old favorite remains competitive, but we wouldn't place bets on it winning races.

Well-constructed

Tired case design

We can't bear to shoot Alienware's Area 51, but there's no question that this thoroughbred PC has outlived its days at the top of the system charts. At $3219 (as of December 3, 2008; $380 extra with a bundled Samsung 2253BW monitor), it's far too...
