Ever since the dawn of the Netbook age I've wanted one. Having that level of mobility is critical for me. The problem is that Netbook capabilities are extremely limited because their processing, memory, and other resources are extremely limited. After this year's CES I expected a next generation of Netbooks with meaningful horsepower. Intel delivered a new Atom N450 processor, with no boost in processing and a meaningful decrease in power consumption (thus longer battery life). Booooorrrrrrrriiiiiiinnnnng. I got an email today from Dell which included information about their newest Alienware laptop the M11x. It's basically micro gaming laptop. 11" 720p display, Core 2 Duo processor, 8gb of RAM, 256gb SSD, and 1gb VRAM will make this thing scream. While I won't be gaming with gaming with it, I'll definitely take advantage of the additional power for day to day tasks. Because it's a gaming laptop it's all tricked out with a Lunar Shadow paint job and and Astral Aqua ground effects. It even includes a custom engraved plate. You can't miss it. It's the one that says Badass Motherfucker.
