Maingear Nomad 17
In a sea of ultrabooks and hybrids, the Nomad 17 is a good old traditional 17-inch gaming laptop. Decently outfitted, it's a sizable investment from one of the only boutique PC companies that really comes through on reliability, support, and flexibility.
The good: The Maingear Nomad 17 offers fast performance and deep configuration options, and Maingear has a great rep for support.
The bad: A $2,000 laptop really needs a better keyboard and touch pad, and a less generic body.
The bottom line: A hefty investment if nicely configured, the Maingear Nomad 17 delivers for serious gaming, although the look may not be for everyone.
