Alienware is revamping its line of 17″ m9700 notebooks by adding new colors and upping the graphics firepower. New “Conspiracy Blue” and “Cyborg Green” colors will be added to the lineup, while the dual graphics cards will be updated to 512 MB Nvidia GeForce Go 7900 GS models. This will give the m9700 1GB of graphics memory.
The m9700 is powered by an AMD Turion 64 processor and can have up to 2GB of RAM along with 320 GB of hard drive store. Two versions of the 17″ screen are sold: A 1920 by 1200 pixel one and a 1440 by 900 pixel version. Alienware claims the m9700 is the first SLI-capable 17″ laptop.
Prices for the m9700 start at $1699.
