Maingear eX L 15 Notebook
Maingear this afternoon launched its fastest 15-inch notebook in a bid to capture gamers looking for regular-sized notebooks. The eX-L 15 focuses on gaming first with a 1GB GeForce GTX 260M as standard in every system. Each system also has at least a 1680x1050 display resolution; custom-ordered models can come with up to a 2.53GHz Core 2 Quad, 8GB of RAM, a Blu-ray drive and either a 500GB conventional hard drive or a 256GB solid-state drive.
A base system is priced high at $1,899 but comes outfitted with a 2.53GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB of memory, a 160GB drive and a DVD Burner. Orders can be made today, but the company hasn't said when systems ordered now should arrive at buyers' doors.
