High-end laptop maker Alienware is now offering a new M17 laptop model that is not to be mistaken with the mighty M17x from the same company.

Starting at $1399, this 17-incher is the very first CrossFire X-enabled notebook, that can be outfitted with a Core 2 Quad / Extreme CPU, up to 4GB of DDR3 memory, two ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870 GPUs, a WXGA+ (1440x900) or WUXGA panel with Clearview (1920x1200), an optional ATSC HDTV tuner, up to 1TB of HDD space in a RAID 0 array, a dual-layer DVD writer / optional Blu-ray reader, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, gigabit Ethernet and a AlienSense facial recognition sensor or a biometric fingerprint reader. Of course, with all the goodies your're looking at around $4000 price tag. The Alienware M17 is available now, for the full list of features or the purchase page please click here.

The base configuration starting at $1399 only comes with a single 3870 mobile. A second adds an additional $250. So, a crossfirex notebook starts at $1649.

I was actually just looking at this. lol...

Lately I've been getting sent out of state for a week at a time on business trips, and a gaming laptop would make more sense at any hotel that trying to lug around my PC. It's expensive, but for me it might be worth it. My alternative would be to build a mATX PC, and still have to drag around a monitor...

My cost would come out around 2500$ after taxes and shipping. I could build a helluva PC for that price, but I wouldn't be able to game on it at least 1 week each month (more often 10-15 days).

Thought of that, usually the TV's are the older ones though. If they had nice new LCD ones I'd be down.

The alienwares are great rigs... the only thing that they dont have down though is proper cooling even on single GPU solutions. Kinda pointless to have all that power if it gets so hot it burns you and switches off after 15mins though ;)

That sounds about right im lucky if i can get 30 minutes unplugged so that beast would be a mile worse in that sense. Great specs pity about a fully kitted at 4 grand pricetag.
