Maingear is launching its 17-inch custom gaming Nomad 17 laptop today with the latest Intel mobile processors.
Kenilworth, N.J.-based Maingear is a boutique maker of gaming rigs, including desktops, notebooks, and workstations. This beefy laptop also has brains, as it uses third-generation Intel Core i7 processors (up to 3.8 gigahertz) and Nvidia GTX 600 series graphics.
The machine comes with a bunch of custom paint options for free for customers. Customers can select one of six glossy colors like the red one above. It has up to 32 gigabytes of DDR3-1600MHz main memory and a variety of hard drive options. For faster boot times, it has a solid-state drive option for caching, which shortens load times and disk-intensive tasks.
Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.
The machine comes with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 675M graphics chip, upgradeable to the GeForce GTX680M. For connectivity, ports include USB 3.0 and 2.0, eSATA, Bluetooth, Ethernet, 802.11n, HDMI, and VGA-out ports. The machine has a full backlit keyboard, a high-definition 1080p display, a multitouch trackpad, and dual speakers with a built-in subwoofer.
