Tired of using a laptop and having to view things in 2D? Then you’ll want to hear about Maingear’s latest announcement: the eX-L 17 3D. While the other numbers may not mean much at first glance, the label 3D is enough to make anyone curious.
As the name implies, the laptop is 3D ready, courtesy of Nvidia. Of course, this means that you will also need Nvidia’s 3D glasses. With everything from movies to games to TV shows going 3D these days, this kind of laptop just might become more common in the near future.
The eX-L 17 3D is not all about being 3D ready, though. It does have more to offer than that capability. Primarily being marketed as a gaming machine – Maingear actually describes it as a “wickedly fast mobile gaming” laptop – the eX-L 17 3D makes use of the latest 32nm second generation Core i7 quad core processors. And there is more – the processor is overclocked at 4.8GHz! (Men: make sure you don’t spend too much time with the laptop on your laps if you want to have children in the future!)
The screen of the eX-L 17 3D is 17.3 inches, huge enough for those who want the ultimate gaming experience. It also has Nvidia’s GeForce GTX485M graphics card – which is responsible for the 3D capabilities. As for power, the processor needs up to 55 watts. The laptop comes with an 8-cell battery and weighs a whopping 8.6 pounds (3.9 kilos).
How much will this big baby set you back? Nothing less than $2,659 for the basic configuration. Maingear allows you to build your own laptop, and depending on your preferences, you can go up to $8,000! Even if you’re not planning to blow that much on a 3D gaming laptop, it’s nice to dream.
