Alienware M18x Configurator Now Online, Systems Not Shipping Until End Of May

Dell finally made the M18x official last month. The 16lbs gaming *air quotes* notebook went on sale earlier today and can be spec’d out to the max. Prices start out at $1999, but that’s for the basic model and as we all know, basic models are for chumps.

An additional $975 nets a Core i7 2920XM overclocked to 4.0 GHz. Or perhaps you’re a RAM guy. Well then, select the 32GB option for just $2,000 and while you have the company credit card, you may as well go with the dual 2GB AMD Radeon HD 6970M setup. But not everything carries a premium. The M18x includes a swanky metal plate that can be engraved with 21 characters of your choice. Let me suggest, “Trust Fund FTW.”

No matter what specs you choose, the systems will be in Dell’s care until at least May 24th.
