Alienware M11x brings gaming to netbooks, will kill many zombies
Sure, you can play games on your netbook if you can stand the tiny screen and keyboard, tinny sounds (if on speakers) and lower framerate. There’s even a list compiled just for you. But if you’re into serious stuff, no one is more serious on gaming than Alienware.
While it looks like a netbook, the Alienware M11x packs some serious heat.
