Maingear Issues Clutch 13" and 15" Notebooks

Maingear has been on a roll of late, issuing new notebooks and desktops just about as quickly as CPU and GPU makers come out with new silicon. But the company's latest aren't based on any particular new release from another company, they're just new for the sake of being new. The Clutch line of notebooks consists of two machines: a 13.3" model and a 15.6" model. Both use Intel CPUs, a 1366x768 resolution display and hold up to 8GB of RAM, but that's about when the similarities end.

The Clutch-13 is an ultraportable that is built for users on the run, and it can be equipped with a 512GB SSD while featuring DVI/VGA outputs, four USB 2.0 ports, a Core 330UM (1.2GHz) processor, integrated Intel HD graphics, 802.11g/n Wi-Fi, ExpressCARD, eSATA, HDMI, Windows 7 and Intel's Anti-Theft technology support. The entire machine weighs 3.3lbs. and starts at $1099.

The larger brother, the Clutch-15, has the same WXGA panel but includes Core i3, i5 or i7 CPU options, integrated Intel HD graphics or a GeForce GT 330M, a full size keyboard (with numpad) and a total weight of 4.75lbs. It's also a bit cheaper, starting at $899 without an optional docking station. Both machines are on sale now and fully customizable.
