The Aurora m9700 (from £1198) is the first 17-inch (19-inch model also available) dual graphics card laptop from Alienware, giving you up to a 100 per cent increase in graphics performance over single graphics card systems. Want even more? How does 1GB of graphics memory sound? That’s enough power to pump out games at the highest resolutions without butchering your frame rate, and mobile enough to pick up and move closer to your next victim. And at just 3.90kg (398x299x470mm), it won’t break your back if you intend to use it frequently on the move.
..Alienware’s new system unleashes a new level of graphics performance for mobile gamers, video production companies and university engineering departments seeking top-of-the-line performance, crystal-clear display, and an excellent range of connectivity options. It’s a tad pricey and doesn’t support Intel’s new Core 2 Duo processors, but it is a premium product for top-end users looking for something special.  – Editors’ Choice
