    MAINGEAR, an award-winning PC system builder offering custom desktops, notebooks, and workstations is unveiling the new NOMAD 17 custom notebook as the perfect performance mobile solution for gamers and PC enthusiasts alike. It boasts top tier mobile hardware such as 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors and NVIDIA GTX 600 series graphics, but also keeps user interface and aesthetics close to heart.

    Technological Wizardry
    The NOMAD 17 gaming laptop supports 3rd generation Intel® quad-core processors up to 3.8 GHz for blazing performance and offers cool operation with maximum battery life, up to 32 GB of DDR3-1600 MHz RAM, and a full array of hard drive support including full size SSD and RAID 0 and 1 arrays. For those looking for faster boot up, there is an SSD caching option that works automatically for faster load times and disk-intensive tasks.

    Gaming performance is as sleek as any desktop counterpart thanks to full DX11 and PhysX support, as well as NVIDIA's Kepler architecture in their new 600 series graphics solutions. The powerhouse machine comes stock with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 675M, upgradeable to the GeForce GTX680M; both featuring NVIDIA's unique Optimus Technology that maximizes power savings by dynamically assigning workload to either the built-in Intel HD Graphics or the GeForce GPU. The NOMAD 17 also has no lack of connectivity, with USB 3.0, 2.0, eSATA, Bluetooth, Ethernet, 802.11n, HDMI, and VGA out ports.

    Style and Functionality
    The NOMAD 17 is also making history as the only gaming laptop in the industry to have hand-painted premium automotive paint jobs, free of charge. Customers can select one of the six sexy glossy colors available that matches their color palette. But the indulgence to the senses does not stop there: the NOMAD 17 comes with a fully backlit keyboard, a full HD 1080P 17" matte display, multi-touch trackpad with gesture and scrolling support, and dual speakers with a built-in subwoofer.

    "The 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors are a perfect fit for MAINGEAR's NOMAD 17," said Joakim Algstam, Gaming Segment Ecosystem Marketing Manager at Intel. "MAINGEAR strives to place top tier components in their system, and the great performance and battery life that our solutions deliver make sure that gamers' tough demands are met."

    "The NOMAD 17 is a thing of beauty," said Wallace Santos, CEO and founder of MAINGEAR. "With a custom automotive paint job and performance parts, this roadster of a machine is quite a work of art, technologically and aesthetically. Quite simply, it is the finest gaming laptop we have ever offered."

    Two things.
    -Psh... free paint job. Must be factored into the cost.
    -Built in subwoofer... I can only imagine this thing shaking a table.

    I can't help but think of Crysis when I read the name Nomad lol.

    Looks like a pretty sweet notebook. Depending on what the base model cpu is... the price doesn't seem bad either.
