MAINGEAR announced today the launch of the new Pulse 17 laptop. Following the Pulse 14, the Pulse 17 offers the worlds thinnest 17" gaming notebook with the very best in mobile hardware components packaged in an unparalleled compact form factor.

Best of the Best:
The extremely lightweight Pulse 17 weights less than 6lbs and embodies the best MAINGEAR has to offer in performance and style to offer the ultimate mobile gaming notebook. This product features the Intel CoreTM i7 4700HQ mobile processor that can be boosted from 2.4 GHz to 3.4 GHz using Intel Turbo Boost 2.0, a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M with 2 GB video memory that offers stunning visuals and life-like physics, and a built-in subwoofer and surround speaker package powered by Sound Blaster Cinema that delivers the most satisfying sound stage to be found on a notebook. The Pulse 17 packs more power and performance into a thinner profile than any other notebook.

Speed Matters:
Gamers can also minimize load times with a RAID 0 Solid State hard drive array that can maximize read speeds over 900 MB/s and get connectivity with Killer Doubleshot networking optimization over wired and wireless Ethernet that offers up to 5x better latency and has the power to handle multiple data streams at once. With the Visual Bandwidth Control, gamers can control what streams are doing in real-time for superior control over their bandwidth that offers unrivalled hardware and software technology for your notebook Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections.

With all this performance, the Pulse 17 stays also cool and quiet yet efficient with a precision-tuned dual fan thermal cooling solution for optimal airflow. The automated cooler boost feature cleverly adjusts airflow during extreme gaming sessions to the system cool for those long gaming sessions.

Customize Style:
The Pulse 17 is a perfect combination of functionality and design encased in a brushed aluminum shell and has a backlit keyboard that features a full range of color option with five pre-set color schemes or can be customized to over thousands of color combination so gamers can stylize to their hearts content. On the outside, there are three default choices of design with MAINGEAR's M.A.R.C. laser engraving to choose from that offers a clean and elegant design or a custom design can be submitted to get any artwork etched of their liking.

I used the configurator and ended up with a mouse, Intel 802.11ac and a t-shirt for $3200!

Um, wow. Is it just me or, is that a lot for a laptop? Alienware has a couple high end Laptops, not as thin, that are as good, or better, for less money. As do some others around the $1500 mark.

It's nice, and all but, I can't see myself throwing that much cash at a laptop.

The real kicker about mobile i7 laptop parts is that almost none of them have 8 threads besides the phenominally prices ones :laugh:
I've seen an i7 that's got 2 cores and 4 threads. Makes no sense!
