Deal: £949 Dell Alienware M14x R2 Workstation laptop

Have a look at the Alienware M14x R2 laptop, one which is on sale on eBay via a top-rated seller with an uncanny name (thechef01) for £949. It comes with a standard one year warranty, free delivery, 949 Nectar points and delivers very powerful combination of performance and design.

It runs on a quad-core Intel Core i7-3630QM processor clocked at 2.4GHz (with a turbo boost of 3.4GHz) with 6MB of cache. Other features include a one year next business day onsite warranty, 16GB RAM, a 500GB hard disk drive, spinning at 7,200RPM, Windows 8, a slot-loaded DVD writer, a 14.1in WLED TrueLife display with a 1,600 x 800 pixel display, an Nvidia Geforce GT650M GPU with 2GB GDDR5 memory, a backlit keyboard, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a 63Whr 8-cell battery and a 2-megapixel webcam.

Connectivity and expansion capabilities include a mini display port, HDMI, three USB ports, VGA, GbE LAN, a card reader and a few extra connectors. This being primarily a gaming and workstation laptop, it is significantly bigger than a thin-and-light model at 38mm thick and nearly 3Kg.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
