I've been a gamer most of my life, but I've never owned a "gaming computer". Sure, I buy nice graphics cards for my desktop and I make sure I've got the RAM and processor I need to handle the games I want to play, but every machine I've ever owned has been, first and foremost, a business PC. That could all change soon, thanks to Dell. (via Pmp today..

Yes, Alienware machines are all overpriced. They use their style and name in the industry to charge customers a premium for their hardware. But so does Apple.

This netbook sports an 11.6" screen, 1 GB of RAM, and a 1.3 GHz Core 2 Duo processor with an Nvidia GT335M. It has 1 GB of RAM and 6.5 hours of working battery life on a full charge (estimated). It has WiFi a/b/g/n as well as 3G capabilities. The keyboard is also backlit, which is an incredibly sweet feature to find in a tiny netbook.

When you put everything together...the great design, lit keyboard, 4 pound weight and faster-than-any-other-netbook processor, $799 doesn't really look too bad. I'm sure there's a healthy extra "Alienware" charge tacked on somewhere in there, but the overall cost is still very reasonable. Any takers? The Dell Alienware M11x is shipping now from Dell.
