Alienware m15x, m17x

Official confirmation has been made of two upcoming Area-51 notebooks by Alienware, the m15x and m17x. A formal announcement is expected to be made on Monday in New York City, but in the meantime participants in Alienware's mailing list are being directed to a contest website, requiring visitors to decode a secret message. The company has revealed that the notebooks will come in two case designs, called Skullcap and Ripley; no other details are being made official however, with the exception of some teaser photos, seen below.

Leaked information suggests that the systems will have the option of a new GeForce 8800M GTX video card, with the m17x being capable of hosting two such chipsets in SLI mode. The 17 may also be able to scale to a 2.8GHz mobile Core 2 Extreme processor, and fit in Blu-Ray for the optical drive. [via Crave]
