Klipsch recently announce it is working with Alienware to provide the audio experience in the gaming laptop manufacturer's first 3D-capable laptop. The M17x is the first release in Alienware's series featuring audio powered by Klipsch.
Klipsch is no stranger to the PC-gaming community and understands that intense gameplay and gripping storylines demand high-powered audio. For nearly 10 years, the company's THX-certified ProMedia 2.1 have been popular speakers in the gaming community. Klipsch's experience in delivering high-powered sound in a small package for gamers made the company a great partner for Alienware's latest project.
The M17x is Alienware's first-ever 3D-capable gaming laptop. The 17-inch laptop is available with second generation "Sandy Bridge" quad-core Intel Core i7 processors, which prove to be 42 percent faster on content creation. Its ability to have HDMI-In support for XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3 connectivity is a first for Alienware. It also can be configured with an optional 120Hz stereoscopic FullHD panel, and can support up to 100W of graphics horsepower. The laptop features the Alienware Command Center for access to AlienFX lighting controls, AlienFusion power management and AlienTouch touchpad controls. Along with Klipsch, the M17x also features MaxxAudio 3 software from Waves.
The Klipsch audio-powered Alienware M17x will be available for purchase in March 2011 at $1,499.
