Cracking Open the Alienware M14x
The Alienware M14x isn't your average laptop. This $1,800 gaming notebook has a 2.4GHz Intel Core i7 processor, 4GB Dual Channel DDR3 1600MHz RAM, and 1.5GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M GPU.
But, its stand-out-feature isn't any of this high-end hardware. What makes the 2011 M14x truly interesting is the integration of a wireless HDMI transmitter. When paired with the included receiver, the M14x offers a glimpse of the future--a world without video/audio cables, where devices (laptops, set-top boxes, game consoles, and the like) stream video/audio to any display.
Follow along as I crack open the Alienware M14x.
