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.
