Alienware launches Radeon X1900-powered notebook
Late last year, European PC maker Fujitsu-Siemens quietly introduced
a notebook with a then-unannounced ATI Mobility Radeon X1900 graphics processor. The Mobility X1900 is now listed
on AMD's ATI website, and Alienware has launched a new high-end gaming notebook outfitted with the chip. Alienware's offering has been christened the Area-51 m5790 Special Edition
, and its top configuration packs a wide-screen 17" 1920x1200 display, a Core 2 Duo processor overclocked to 2.66GHz, 2GB of DDR2-667 RAM, dual 200GB hard drives in RAID 0, and a Blu-ray drive. Unsurprisingly, the system costs a pretty penny. With all the aforementioned goodies, you'll have to cough up at least $4,299 for the new notebook, and that price can go higher yet with accessories and longer warranty options.
