    WOW, there is a photo which means this should not get closed for speculation. I guess all the rumors turned to be true after all.

    The M14X is very good news as the M11X was way too small for me but an M14X well might just make it...

    I don't think that is next to a M17x R3. Looks more like a M15x as it hasn't got the new style lid.

    yeah thats what i thought ! the m17x would have been alot bigger

    -----------------------------------------

    Edit

    I really hope the m14x DOESN'T have a disk drive like the m11x... waste of space and its old tech

    you're right about that top - but the pic is angled such that the bottom seems to match more with the M17x R3 styling... :confused:

    Looks like I found my next laptop :D

    14 inches is perfect for me. I loved the size of my envy 14 screen. The m11x is great, but its screen its just a little small for me for everyday use.

    I wonder what specs they fit in that machine

    It is next to the m17x.

    "M14 next to the M17"

    The original poster a little down in the thread.

    Basically it seems that the M14X will be slightly smaller than the M15X. Wonder what type of battery and components will go inside.

    My thoughts exactly. 13 would have been just right, better performance then the 11, but more portable and better battery life than the 15.

    Technicaly this 14 is that, but I'm curious how much better it's battery life will be compared to the 15.

    Well the M17x R3 and the M15x don't differ too much in size in terms of chassis so we could be seeing a pre-production R3 that doesn't have the new style lid but the new style speaker grills.
    In terms of specs, I have 2 versions. If I was Negatron: i7 2620m dual with 540m GT. Optimist Prime: i7 2630Qm with 555m GT. What do you guys think?

    I think it's your optimist option... even though it wouldn't be typical for Dell. Maybe they offer both of them, we'll see. However, a quad core is a must for this system.
    I wonder whether there'S going to be a 1080p screen option... probably not, the pixel density of the M15x is already amazing imo.

    Well Sony have put a 1080p screen in their 13 incher but I don't think Dell would. I don't think they should even consider it. I think a nice 1600x900 screen as the max option. Would also help with gaming for the weaker graphics card.

    That's a good point... fullHD needs much more ressources. Nevertheless I like high pixel densities :D
