After reviewing the iBuyPower CZ-17 last month and seeing it look nearly identical to our zero-point MSI GT60, we were hoping our next gaming laptop would be a fresh, new design. Unfortunately Maingear's Nomad 15 apparently uses the same original design manufacturer (ODM) construction as those other two.
Note: This review was taken from the February 2013 issue of the magazine.
Maingear, a boutique system builder based out of New Jersey, has taken aim at gaming on the go with its new Nomad 15 gaming laptop. Available in a variety of color options, the customizable Nomad 15 is, as its name implies, a 15-inch notebook equipped that features 3rd Generation Intel Core i7 processor options (Ivy Bridge), discrete graphics (GeForce GTX 670MX and up), and up to 32GB of system memory.
