One advantage brick-and-mortar stores have over ordering online is the ability to serve up instant gratification. You walk into a store, grab what you need, plunk down your credit card, and the item is yours to take home. Online sellers haven't found a way to trump brick-and-mortar outfits in that regard, but Maingear
has certainly lessened the gap with its Quickship line, which now includes the company's Vybe 15 notebook.
Buyers can select from four different configurations (Good, Better, Best, and Ultimate) ranging in price from $1,099 to $1,999 and each one is ready to ship in a short period of time following order confirmation.
"The new Maingear VYBE 15 offers the best of mobile technology that can ship within 24-48 hours," said Wallace Santos, CEO and Co-founder of Maingear Computers. "This notebook is perfect for college students that want to game or business users that need a system for everyday use that can also be used for entertainment."
The 'Good' model costs $1,099 and ships with a Core i5 3360M processor, 8GB of DDR3-1333 RAM, Nvidia GeForce GT 650M GPU, and 500GB 7200 RPM SATA hard drive. For $1,299 you buyers can step up to the 'Better' model, which upgrades the processor to a Core i7 3520M and bumps up storage to 750GB.
Next there's the $1,599 'Best' model with a Core i7 3720QM processor, 8GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, GeForce GTX 660M GPU, 128GB mSATA Crucial M4 solid state drive (SSD), and 750GB HDD. The $1,999 'Ultimate' model upgrades the CPU to a Core i7 3820QM chip, doubles the amount of RAM to 16GB, and doubles the SSD capacity to 256GB.
