Introduction

Performance laptops have been around for some time now and one of the leading lights has been Alienware. In my time at Driver Heaven I have been lucky enough to test several Alienware systems and have seen their products mature from their first generation model, the Area 51m to the latest M5550. It is fair to say that Alienware always try to pack as much high end kit into their notebooks as possible and when I think back to the 51m I fondly remember the 3.0Ghz Pentium 4, 1Gb of DDR-400 and Radeon 9600 impressing everyone in the office, in fact that specification was actually better than many desktops at the time (2003).

That original machine received a glowing review when we tested it and the last time we spoke to the person who originally ordered the system it was still working, albeit with a replacement battery. Unfortunately not every experience we have had with Alienware systems has been the best, some have had major issues with build quality such as failure to remove protective plastic from heatsinks or damaged graphics cards which display corruption when gaming. But with each release we have to put these issues to the back of our minds and view each product as if it was our first, which brings us on to today’s review sample.

The latest 17” model to be released by Alienware is the Area-51 m9750. This particular model features the latest Core2 parts with excellent hard drive options and continues an initiative that Alienware first introduced in 2006, mobile SLI.
