The mid-range config m11x with the 2nd Gen Intel Sandy Bridge i5 processor hits the "sweet spot" in a balance between price and performance for a portable gaming rig. Things step up a bit on the GPU side of things too with a newer generation GeForce GT 540M, netting you 96 shader core, supports for DX 11 and Shader 5.1. This decently fast GPU will let you run all modern games such as Crysis 2, Call of Duty series, Battlefield 3 without a sweat on your Alienware m11x. Coupons are usually pretty light for this premium gaming laptop unfortunately, so you'll usually only see small discounts for $50 off. Savings are savings though as that's one extra game you can snag with the 50 bones.

This Alienware m11x setup is powered by a Core i5 520UM. It is the ultra low voltage edition on the Arrandale lines of Core i5s. Unlike its desktop brothers, these mobile Core i5 CPUs supports hyper-threading, and along with Turbo Boost, the i5-520UM can up its clockrate from 1.06Ghz to 1.86Ghz. The system is equipped with 8GB of dual channel DDR3 memory, more than enough RAM for all your computer gaming needs and any other multitasking needs.
If you upgraded to this config (4GB ram, 320GB hard drive) from the base Core 2 Duo configuration (2GB ram, 160gb hard drive) that starts at $799, it would cost $944. This limited quantity M11x deal is $65 cheaper than that.
