Alienware recently refreshed its Alienware 13 notebook, with a fresh Geforce GTX 960M graphics core, making it a bit more attractive for gamers. The previous version used Geforce GTX 860M graphics, which is being replaced by a faster GTX 960M Maxwell GPU.

While the mobile GTX 980M and GTX 970M GPUs can be seen in plenty of high-end gaming notebooks, Nvidia has now unveiled a couple of new mid-range mobile Maxwell GPUs, the GTX 960M and the GTX 950M.

Although the first batch of Steam Machines is expected in November, some manufacturers have already announced their own versions and Valve has now added a full list of Steam Machines, including specifications and prices, over at its Steam site.
