• The world’s thinnest 17” gaming laptops have arrived. The American computer manufacturer, Maingear launched the Pulse 17 laptops yesterday. The gaming notebook weighing less than 6 lbs is sure to make some heads turn with its sleek design. The Intel Core i7 4700HQ mobile processor powers the laptop and the processor can also be boosted from 2.4 GHz to 3.4 GHz using Intel Turbo Boost 2.0. A NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M coupled with 2 GB video memory packs the notebook with visuals defining stunning details. A 17.3” full HD display with 1920x1080 LED display also features in the launch. According to the website, the laptop measures just 0.8” in thickness.


    Specifications include a 16 GB DDR3 memory (fast becoming a 'must have' according to the modern day gaming needs) at 1600MHz, Hard Drive storage of 1 TB and up to two 480 GB solid state drives. A fully customizable lit keyboard, HDMI output, four USB 3.0 ports, two mini display ports, Killer gaming NIC, 7-in-1 media card reader are some of the other attention grabbing features. Two cooling fans, one each for CPU and GPU, coupled with automated cooler boost feature are designed to keep the system cool for long gaming sessions. The gamers can choose from the good, better and best configurations.

    The price range starts at $2099, which might prove to be a major drawback for the product as it seems to be overpriced when compared to the other products in same pool. Performance is something that all of gaming enthusiasts want and though decent in features, there is nothing revolutionary offered by Pulse 17 on that front. The company seems to be trying to ride on the design parameter for the marketing purposes, but it becomes interesting to see whether the ‘world’s thinnest notebook’ is thin enough to slip into the corridors of the crowded segment and carve out a niche for itself.

    Let’s open up a discussion with an obvious question to all the gamers out there, Is it really what you want?
