    Default alienware ultrabook

    do you guys think Dell would make a 13" alienware ultrabook with these specs + amd /nvidia gpu?

    Size: less than 2cm thick
    Weight: less than 1.4kg
    Instant on: the laptop must resume from sleep instantly
    Storage: ultra-fast flash memory chips, not spinning mechanical hard disks Processing grunt: no chips older than the current generation Intel Sandy Bridge Core i3/i5/i7 processors.
    Connectivity: Either USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt ports. Mini-HDMI or mini-DisplayPort for video. No more chunky VGA ports -- they just won't fit!
    3G: option to have 3G built in to the notebook
    Battery: four to six hours battery life

    I don't believe so, thin and light doesn't really sit well with Alienware's design philosophy not to mention that the m11x has yet to be hotly contested from elsewhere and that the newly released m14x isn't going anywhere soon, they might slim the latter down a bit though, who knows?

    My m14x with an i7 gets hot enough, you wont to put even worse cooling in it? Not gonna happen. Basically it sounds like a Alienware Air?

    It might be possible if you had a m11x i7 in there and really low end graphic option if not just intel 3000 integrated, in which place they'd never do because the whole point of the alienware line is to game and that couldn't game at all.,

    Sure, Dell sells the Latitude 13/Vostro V13/V130.

    If a laptop that small was ever made, it would have integrated graphics, and would not be worth of the Alienware name. IF it had discreet graphics it would be throttled all the time to the point where it wouldn't be useful in any sort of gaming environment.

    Point in case? Ultrabooks are meant for computing on the go, not gaming on the go. Need the lightest gaming notebook? Look at an M11x or an Acer TimelineX.

    An Alienware ultrabook could work. Imagine an ultrabook like the Asus Zenbook and add a docking station with a swappable GPU, cooling, ports. Why wouldn't it work?

    The ultrabooks out now can keep up with moderate gaming as it is, but when you need max specs, your docking station is there. I would love to see it made out of Carbon Fiber.

    The only way an AW ultrabook could work is if AW jumped on the external GPU bandwagon.

    Honey, please stop by 7-11 and pick up another ultrabook for the kids on the way home. And oh, by the way, we need milk and eggs, too.
    An Alienware Ultrabook? Gee, that's like an oxymoron. Alienware Ultrabook... meh! Is that like a "high-performance" moped?

    Small keyboard, small screen, small performance... big price... massive failure.

    If you want that kind of thing, just buy a $199 Google tablet for web surfing and spend the money saved on better CPU/GPU in the beast.

    That would be the case: ultrabooks do suck. Follow Fox's advice and get a nice tablet if you need portability (although the market is saturated with crappy ones so be careful/selective). "Portability" in case of ultrabooks/tablets simply means browsing the net and reading some ebooks and nothing more anyway.

    The mind set of going thin help portability really bug me, I just dun get it. It's not like it is going into the jean pocket or something. Going light I can understand..
