How much gaming goodness can you cram into a 15-inch chassis? That's what Maingear set to find out and the end result is the relaunched eX-L 15 gaming notebook.
Driving the Full HD 1920x1080 LED display is ATI's Mobility Radeon HD 5870 graphics adapter, the fastest mobile graphics chipset on the planet. The baseline configuration also includes an Intel Core i5 520M processor clocked at 2.4GHz, 4GB of DDR3-1333, 250GB Western Digital hard drive, memory card reader, 8X DVD burner, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, a 2MP webcam, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
As configured above you'd be spending $1,600. If your pockets run deeper there are several upgrade options available, including up to a Core i7 820QM processor clocked at 1.73GHz, 8GB of RAM, up to a 750GB hard drive or 512GB SSD, Blu-Ray, and a handful of other upgrades.
Other features include a 30-day zero dead pixel warranty, DVI, HDMI, and S/PDIF ports, 4 USB ports, eSATA, Firewire, and a dual-heatpipe cooling design.
