Enough with the skinny minis! We like a notebook with a little junk in its trunk. Alienware has always been known for its high-end specs and eye-catching design. However, the 2009 model of the M17x was a vision of power and elegance. The bright red aluminum lid was striking, as was the notebook’s front grille, which resembled a high-powered muscle car. Best of all, opening the notebook treated users to their own personal light show via the massive keyboard and its customizable lighting.
