Power and portability is a tricky balancing act, and if you’re in the market for a gaming laptop that satisfies both, Maingear’s Nomad 15 might be the one. Apart from the 15.5-inch 1,920 x 1,080 anti-glare screen, pretty much every other bit of hardware is customizable on the Windows 7 notebook. You’ll have the choice of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 670M, 670MX, 675MX or 680M for the GPU, up to an Intel i7-3840QM quad-core beast running at 3.8GHz, and a maximum of 32GB RAM. Which optical drive it comes with is also your decision, and for storage, up to dual 256GB SSDs or dual 750GB HDDs are supported. A wireless card is optional, with Ethernet joining the stock ports, including HDMI, DVI-I and S/PDIF outs, two USB 2.0’s, three USB 3.0’s and a lone Fire Wire. The important part comes after you’ve finished selecting the guts — picking the right color finish to match your style. It might not be delivered as quickly as Maingear’s other similar sized lappy, but the Nomad 15 certainly packs a heavier punch. Unfortunately, the price is pretty weighty as well: a solid $1,549 for the most basic model.
