Cracking Open the $1,800 Alienware M14x gaming notebook

Cracking Open the Alienware M14x: Internal 60GHz WirelessHD Transmitter card - Front

As I noted earlier, this Alienware M14x's standout feature is the machine's integrated wireless HD transmitter.

Although the Intel WLAN card can also transmit video and audio to and external device via Intel's Wireless Display technology, this PCB is the M14x's dedicated 60GHz WirelessHD transmitter, which is designed to work with the included VIZIO XWH200 Universal Wireless HD Video and Audio Kit.
