Alienware has finally updated its vision of the netbook thus sending the old switchable graphics the way of the Dodo. The small M11x finally got its share of Core i3, i5, i7 CPUs and Nvidia's Optimus technology.
In addition to the previous Pentium Dual Core ULV SU4100 and Core 2 Duo SU7300 CPUs, the smallest Alienware can now be equipped with Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs. To be precise, you can order the M11x with either Core i3-330UM, Core i5-520M, or Core i7-640UM. Although Alienware's UK site still hasn't added the Core i3 CPU, the company's Malaysian site has it.
