The eX-L 18

 

Today, Maingear launched what will at least for a while be the world's most powerful gaming laptop dubbed the eX-L 18.

The eX-L 18 is based around the PM45/ICH9-M platform and will come with a choice from Intel's Core 2 Duo family – the Core 2 Duo P8700 at 2.53GHz, the T9600 at 2.8GHz and the Core 2 Duo Extreme X9300 2.53GHz, where the latest option is of course the title-bearer.

It will also feature two Geforce GTX280M GPUs, 8GB of DDR3 and a choice between three 2.5-inch SATA or SSD drives, an optional Blu-ray drive, also optional integrated HD TV (ATSC) tuner, four USB 2.0 ports, VGA out, HDMI out, FireWire, Intel's WiFi Link 5300 a/b/g/Draft-N and up to 7.1 audio if you use digital out.

This device has some nice odds to ring well with gamers as it comes with an 18.4-inch screen at 1920x1080, and the sleek looks will surely help. In case you'd like to customize it even further, Maingear offers to use their custom etching technology to make it fit your needs.

The eX-L 18 will come with a choice of 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista Home Premium and Vista Ultimate, and we'd advise not counting on battery life as the specs indicate this will be a power hog, but such a beast is not aimed at mobility in the first place. You can configure and purchase the eX-L 18 at Maingear's website starting at saucy $2,999.
