Gaming laptops and gaming technology are constantly changing and offering us some great new features to consider if you’re in the market for a gaming laptop. Perhaps, the biggest trend has been the movement towards even smaller, sleeker gaming laptops in recent months F95ZONE . The introduction of the Alienware M11x is a perfect example of this trend towards smaller gaming devices.
While both Dell and Alienware are said to dislike calling the new 11 inch device a gaming “netbook”; their official marketing ads calls the M11x a “sub-15 inch” gaming laptop. Regardless of what Dell/Alienware wants, this 4 pound laptop with a T335M GPU and a HD 11″ display with 1336 x 768 max resolution, fits into the extremely hot netbook market. Why they would object is a little puzzling, but they probably want to put the emphasis on the M11x’s gaming performance and power, rather than concentrating on its small size.
However, the M11x fits perfectly into the netbook market, and there are probably countless number of gamers who want a powerful gaming laptop which is truly portable and can be easily carried around. Especially, when you consider the overall trend or movement to portable devices, such as the recent introduction of the Apple iPad Tablet, which also has a gaming element to it.
The M11x will fit nicely in today’s ever-increasing mobile world, especially when you factor in the youth market, which these portable devices are obviously targeting, one can plainly see the trend to more mobile gaming devices is on the horizon. Young people who have been raised on cell phones, Nintendo DS, iPods… will expect the next logical step up to small gaming laptops, call them “gaming netbooks”, “sub-15 inch laptops” or whatever; these machines won’t be wasted on the young.
