Alienware has begun offering its Area-51m notebook series with Microsoft's Windows Media Center operating system and Multimedia components such as TV tuner and high-end graphic and audio chips.

Notebooks continue to be the growth engine for the PC industry, so it is a logical move for the industry to bring more and more features from the desktop to mobile devices. One of the more recent trends are devices that are equipped with Microsoft's Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 (MCE 2005) operating system and the availability of components that allow watching and recording Live TV as well as other audio and video broadcasts.


Alienware is the latest company to jump on the bandwagon and now offers its performance notebook Area-51m 7700 with optional components to work in conjunction with MCE. Base models of the device are priced at about $2000, equipped with the OS, a mini PCI TV tuner, dual harddrives and appropriate graphics served by a GeForce Go 6800 Ultra chip, the entry level price climbs to at least $2700.

Choosing options such as additional memory, a higher resolution display (1680x1050 pixel) and additional battery capacity will ring up more than $4300. That battery capacity may be a simple matter of necessity for users who want to be somewhat mobile: The notebook is only offered with Pentium 4 desktop processors with clock speeds ranging from 2.8 to 3.8 GHz, which are very likely to drain the capacity of the main battery before you can finish recording or watching that two hour movie.
