Maingear Introduces 15.4" eX-L 15 Gaming Notebook

Maingear's latest major gaming notebook was showcased back in late July, and now that the month has changed, it's evidently time to showcase another. This week, the company has introduced the next in the eX-L line, a 15" variant of the 18" beast previously mentioned. The eX-L 15 isn't your average 15" notebook, and you'll easily notice as much thanks to the $1,900 price tag.

Maingear ships this powerhouse with your choice of Core 2 Mobile processors, Intel's PM45 chipset, NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 260m (1GB) GPU, up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, high-performance HDD (or optional SSD), a DVD burner (or Blu-ray Drive if you'd like), a 15.4" 1680 x 1050 resolution with an optional 1920 x 1200 matte display and Windows Vista 64-bit.

If you'd like to customize your own, you can head over to Maingear's website now where the base machine sells for $1,899 with a 14-month warranty. If you're curious, your cash can be spent buying hard drives as large as 1TB and SSDs as large as 160GB, not to mention Intel TurboMemory modules for quicker booting. Orders can be placed now, with shipments expected to begin next month.
