Is this the end of the ultraportable as we know it? Not so, I say! In addition to the fresh arrival of the buffed up ‘ultrabook’, the netbook category has been bolstered by an arrival from Dell-owned purveyor of gaming systems, Alienware.
The group, renowned for its reputation in building high-powered gaming systems, surprised us in 2010 with the m11x, which could probably be the world’s first ‘Gaming Netbook’. Those two words I thought I’d never see together, and now with the m11x in it’s third revision, I thought I’d see if it lives up to its promising nickname.
