Alienware's latest notebook means business


True to its word, Alienware is tackling the
business end of the computing market and launching some really impressive professional
notebook hardware. Having started life selling some of the finest gaming
hardware known to humanity, the more official end of Alienware’s product range
still seems to maintain all of the muscle that its predecessors offered. This
is the Area 51 m5700 which is best suited to the most demanding of business
users. The spec list is pretty stunning: it uses Intel Centrino to integrate
wireless networking technology powered by either a 1.6 or 2.13 GHz processor and
up to a mammoth 2GB of 533MHz RAM. More details on the turn.

Next you’ve got dual SATA hard drives which
do reveal their business orientation in their 5400 RPM, but they do allow you
to purchase up to 240GB of storage. Best of all is the 6800 series NVIDIA graphics
which will really help out on those ‘business’ tasks. Yes, this kind of
hardware grunt comes with a weighty price tag, but it’s not as high as you might
expect. You can pick up a basic m5700 for a little over a grand and even if you
go all out on the hardware options you can still keep the cost below £2000
which is pretty impressive.
