Default 1730m to m11x

Hello there. I have recently come to realize i never use my dell xps 1730m, and i know its because the thing is a so **** heavy with a brick for a power supply. The new m11x dell xps has come out as a gaming net book with similar spec for one third what i paid for my 1730m a few years ago.

Now i would love something portable and i know it plays the current games, but how would it measure up to my current laptop?

Oh the reason i ask is because id be selling my laptop for a huge loss (although its been years) to pay for the m11x.

The M11X has been out for awhile. It's a good gaming system, the only Alienware we suggest here. It's a nice bang for buck.

It has more new parts, so it will work faster than your previous.
