You all remember my ranting review for my “White Geisha Box?” Well maybe not, actually I doubt it. I will summarize, it was a blog about my love affair with my XBox who has since passed. RIP. I did replace her with “The Black Dahlia” and used “Geisha’s” memory so she is still in my heart.
Last night I took in my new buddy, an 11 inch M11x Alienware Laptop. Not impressed? This little beast has a 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 335m Graphics Card, 8GB of DDR3, a 320 GB Hard Drive and a clockable 1.73GHz processor. What does this mean? It means I am walking around with an 11 inch laptop that has more power than most desktops. I can tear up Mass Effect on the road or rack my brains to Portal while I sit in a bathroom at a comicbook convention. The life.
What can I do with 320gb you ask. Easily 150 GB of music and movies which I can now expand but also thin out some crap. I have 30GB of comics I still have yet to read and of course 30GB of wedding photos and video’s of my son. That leaves me with another 120 I can expand into gaming.
Star Wars: Old Republic any one? Now that I have the muscle to play it at recommended spec I may have to check it out. Until then I need to check out so good gaming on the go. email me suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Besides the norms the laptop is laden with alien buttons, scifi style letters on the keyboard and backlit AlienFX. It is such a nerd machine it’s not funny. I will review it in about a week along with a naming ceremony.
