just how thin can a 17-inch class laptop go? well, we don’t know the answer, but we will take 0.85″ (21.59 mm) as the thinnest for now, which is what Maingear Pulse 17 Gaming Laptop is touting. as to whether it is in fact the world’s thinnest as Maingear has claimed, we will let you do the research and be your own judge. tipping the scale at less than 6 lbs (< 2.72 kg), this slim form, big screen mobile gaming rig packs Intel Core i7 4700HQ chip, clocking in at 2.4GHz, but can be further boost to 3.4GHz if desired, using Intel Turbo Boost 2.0. working alongside with the 4th gen Intel Core processor is a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M graphics with 2GB VRAM and 16GB of system RAM.
other features include a glorious, eye-popping 17.3″ Full HD LED backlit display, up to 1TB HDD or a pair of 480GB SSD, Killer Gaming NIC, Wireless n (ac is presented as an option), stereo speakers with subwoofer, a removable battery, plus some of the usual suspects include HDMI output, USB 3.0 ports (four of them, actually), two mini display ports, multi-card reader, as well as a LAN port in case going the wired route is right up your very narrow alley. obviously, i am not a fan of RJ45 port, which we thought if it can do without it, it could probably go even thinner. anyway, that’s just my rant. judging from the images, this metal alloy construct gaming laptop does look pretty rad, though.
the Maingear Pulse 17 Gaming Laptop is available now in good, better, best configurations to suit your budget and needs, with prices start at $2,099. a few more look, plus a product promo video after the break.
