I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

Alienware M17x Laptop Streams HD (and 3D) to Your TV

Posted on Saturday, March 12 @ 07:31:52 Eastern by



We had a chance to check out Alienware's booth at PAX East this weekend. After making our way through the massive crowds at Alienware's "biggest booth ever", we had some hands-on time with various products from their cutting-edge lineup. As expected, everything Alienware had to offer was top-notch quality, but one thing really stood out to me as someone who considers himself a console gamer.

It's not that I'm not interested in PC games, I'd just prefer to do my gaming from the comfort of my couch, on a massive 3DTV, rather than my desktop monitor. That's why Alienware's newest laptop, the M17x, is the perfect solution.

The M17x is a 3D capable gaming laptop with some beefy specs and a sleek exterior. But that's not the main draw for me. The M17x is also capable of wirelessly streaming 1080p HD, even 3D, to your TV screen. Note: you'll need a stereoscopic 3DTV and active-shutter glasses for 3D.

No need to stretch HDMI cables across your room -- the M17x has a WirelessHD (WiHD) transmitter built in. All you need is an adapter for your TV (some future TV models will have this WiHD spec built-in) and you can run any PC game on your laptop, but stream the video to your TV -- all from up to 30 feet away.

We watched a demonstration of Crysis 2 running on the M17x, being streamed to a nearby HDTV. There was absolutely zero lag or choppiness, just smooth 1080p gaming heaven.

For more information on the M17x, visit Alienware's website or check out the video below.
