[EXPIRED] As a consequence of the Sandy Bridge debacle, Dell is once again offering dual GPU-configurations of the Alienware M17x (two Mobility Radeon 5870M’s in CrossFireX mode), so this is probably your last chance to grab one. They are also throwing a sale on a pretty robust base configuration of the M17x. Both deals are valid until 17-Feb-2011.
The Alienware M17x config includes 8GB of RAM and a 640GB 7,200rpm hard drive for $1,899 – a $410 savings. As mentioned, an extra HD5870 can be added to the mix ($475). Other optional upgrades include a 1920×1200 RGB LED panel and various dual-drive RAID 0 HDD or SSD configurations.
