The Best Laptops of 2011
Best Gaming Rig: Alienware M17x
One of the few notebooks to ever receive a perfect rating from our reviewers, the latest M17x features an Intel quad-core Sandy Bridge CPU, AMD switchable graphics, and a Samsung SSD. On top of that, the M17x has a built-in WirelessHD transmitter, so if its 17-inch 1080p display isn’t big enough, you can beam Blu-ray movies, games, and anything else you want wirelessly across the room to a big-screen TV. And let’s not forget its cool-as-heck backlit keyboard.
Lowest Price: $3,300
