postheadericon How would you change Dell’s Inspiron Duo?

We aren’t ones to knock a company for throwing convention to the wind, and frankly, we were downright excited to see how Dell’s Inspiron Duo would revolutionize our mobile lives. During our own review, we found the design to be top-notch and the build quality to be world-class, but the sluggish performance, annoying software overlay and lackluster UI didn’t exactly earn it any brownie points. Enough about us, though — this is your time to shine. If you bit the bullet and picked one of these multifaceted laptops up, we’re interested in hearing how you’d change things. Would you ditch the swiveling LCD? Would you prefer a dual-boot setup as found on the ViewPad 10? How’s the hardware standing up over time? Would you have rather seen AMD’s Fusion platform take the place of Intel’s Atom? Speak out in comments below, won’t you?

postheadericon Klipsch speakers coming to Alienware’s 3D-enabled M17x gaming laptop

Altec Lansing does it, as does Harman Kardon. Oh, and lest we forget about Beats. We’re talking about companies that have gone the extra mile (and paid a certain price) to get their speakers into the shells of laptops, and now the fine folks at Alienware are grabbing a top-tier name of their own: Klipsch. Despite being snapped up by Audiovox a few months ago, the outfit’s powering ahead with an apparent plan for expansion. Today, Alienware’s launching its first-ever Klipsch-equipped laptop, the 3D-enabled M17x. Not only will buyers find Intel’s newest Sandy Bridge CPUs, a 1080p 3D panel, custom lighting controls and an HDMI input, but they’ll also be gifted with a set of Klipsch drivers and MaxxAudio 3 software from Waves. Hard to say if the partnership will soon bleed over to even more of Alienware’s machines, but all logical signs are pointing to “yes.” As for this guy? It’ll ship this month starting at $1,499.

postheadericon Genesi reduces price of Efika MX Smartbook, Smarttop, says it’s for greater good

Back in September, we reported on the absurdly overpriced Efika MX Smartbook — a little computer sporting a 10-inch display and a $349 price tag — and it looks like somebody took note. The folks over at Genesi have reduced the price of their entire line of Efika MX products, dropping the aforementioned Smartbook to $199 and its desktop companion, the Smarttop, to $129. Of course, they did so with a bit of marketing flair, claiming the deal would open “the door even more for billions of people and businesses in emerging markets to affordable state-of-the-art computing and Internet access.” Now, we’re not calling anyone out here, but we’re guessing we weren’t the only ones who thought the Smartbook was just a tad too pricey. Full PR after the jump.

postheadericon Ask Engadget: what’s the thinnest, lightest, sleekest 17-inch laptop?

We know you’ve got questions, and if you’re brave enough to ask the world for answers, here’s the outlet to do so. This week’s Ask Engadget question is coming to us from Shimon, who clearly longs for the best of both worlds. If you’re looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

“I am looking to replace my 17-inch MacBook Pro. I am looking for a 17-inch ultraportable laptop, or as close as I can get to one. Key features: light, thin, good battery life, high resolution screen, no lap burn, no noisy fan and doesn’t break the bank. Thanks!”

Seems as if Mac / PC isn’t an issue, so we’re assuming they’re all on the table. Considering that he’s leaving a 17-inch MBP, what else out there can compare given the needs? Any suggestions from 17-inch laptop owners out there? Go on, answer away in comments below — you’ve got the time (and screen real estate) to spare.
