It seems that Dell is working hard to upgrade its Alienware M11X gaming notebook by throwing in a new range of CPU options which are powered by Intel’s Sandy Bridge architecture. Its R3 edition is touted to come with a similar 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 resolution LCD display as its predecessor, although don’t let that throw a spanner in your upgrading plans, since a bunch of new Core i5 and Core i7 processor options with base clock speeds ranging from 1.4GHz to 1.6GHz are now available to make sure you can squeeze an additional couple of frames from your favorite game in high quality. Not only that, the juiced up M11X R3 is also touted to come with a 63Wh battery, a variety of hard drive and solid state disk options, and up to 8GB DDR3 RAM. No idea on what kind of future the discrete graphics processor has on this platform though, as it might just use the same NVIDIA 1GB GT335M components as found in its predecessor. So far, there has been no official word from Dell concerning the M11X R3′s launch, nor its release dates. Hopefully, the hinge issue that plagued the M11X won’t be there in the R3.
