Maingear claims its new eX-L18 laptop is the "World's Most Power Gaming Notebook," and while we've seem some desktop replacements built around the Core i7 platform that might dispute that title, the eX-L18 is at least one of the fastest spec'd Core 2 notebooks on the block.
Sporting a generous 18.4-inch LCD, Maingear's latest lappy comes configurable with up to an Intel Core 2 Extreme X9300 processor (2.53GHz), 4GB or 8GB of DDR3-1333 memory, up to three 2.5-inch SATA or SSD drives with RAID support, a DVD or Blu-ray optical drive, and the crème de la crème of mobile gaming hardware: A pair of GTX 280M GPUs in SLI.
"Maingear has equipped the eX-L18 with the world's fastest notebook graphics solution," said Rene Hass, GM of the notebook business unit at Nvidia. "With Nvidia GeForce GTX 280M GPUs, Maingear's customers will experience breathtaking in gaming physics from titles such as Terminator Salvation or Darkest of Days and are ready for GPU computing applications such as Badaboom, vReveal, and Arcsoft SimHD."
Gamers will also experience a noticeably lighter wallet with pricing starting out at $3,000 for a base configuration. All configurations include a "Nighthawk Black Automotive Finish."
