The Alienware M11x was an 11-inch gaming laptop first introduced in 2010.


  • M11x - First introduced in early 2010, it was the smallest-size gaming laptop from Alienware. It came equipped with two Penryn-core processors, a Pentium SU4100 at the entry-level and a Core 2 Duo SU7300 at the high-end. Driving the 11.6 inch screen are two video processors, a GMA 4500MHD integrated and NVIDIA's discrete GeForce GT 335M with its own 1GB of DDR3 RAM.
  • M11x-R2 - Late 2010 revision of the M11x; the first to use Intel's ultra-low-voltage Arrandale Core i5 and i7 processors. The revision also added a rubberized "soft-touch" exterior to the design. The same GT 335M is used for video; however, NVIDIA's Optimus technology was added to automatically switch between it and the still-used GMA 4500MHD.
  • M11x-R3 - 2011 revision of the M11x; added support for the second generation of Intel's Mobility series Core i5 and i7 processors and was the first to include an i3 in its lineup. It also received a standardized 500GB 7200rpm hard drive as well as the standard-for-M11x-line dual-GPU setup combining NVIDIA's discrete GeForce GT 540M for higher-end gaming and Intel's integrated HD Graphics 3000 for older gaming and application use. By the end of 2011, a second revision of the motherboard design used on the R3 series was made available on a limited amount of laptops. This second version used the more powerful Nvidia GF108 chipset, the Nvidia GeForce GT 550M with 1GB video memory.
