Alienware m15x Laptop Discontinued, Makes Way for m11x & m14x

By Updated on

Last month we brought you news regarding some new Alienware laptops, now according to a recent post on NotebookReview it looks as if one of Alienware’s older models, the m15x, has been discontinued.

With great build quality, fast performance and a 1080p display the m15x was a formidable gaming laptop, now it seems as if the m11x, m14x and m18x are Alienware’s preferred offerings.

NotebookReview claim that the m15x has completely disappeared and can no-longer be found on Dell’s international websites, perhaps a new 15-inch model will be revealed soon, but with 11.6, 14, 17.3 and 18.4-inch all listed on their website there is not a huge need for this in our opinion.

We managed to find a listing on Dell India (here), with first-gen Intel Core processor options and nVidia GeForce GT 240M / GTX 260M graphics the m15x could not cut it as a gaming laptop this year, with 18-24 month old hardware it was in desperate need of a refresh, but it looks like Dell decided against it.

The newest Alienware laptops are far superior to the m15x, therefore it is no surprise to see it disappear of the Dell site, we just wonder whether laptop gamers have a demand for this size laptop anymore.
