Reviews for the Maingear Titan 17
Source: Computer Shopper
Look up the word “titan” in any thesaurus, and you’ll find words like "colossus," "gargantuan," "Goliath," and "monster." Any of them could be used to accurately describe Maingear’s Titan 17 notebook. Simply put: The Titan 17 is the fastest notebook we’ve seen to date. For those who put raw speed before portability and price, this is the dream gaming rig.

In terms of value, Maingear seems to be selling the Titan for a premium. Comparing the Titan 17 against the competition, I found that Sager offers the same system configuration for about $600 less. The same result was exposed if I configured similar Clevo x7200-based portables at AVADirect or Malibal, while Origin PC was about the same price. Alienware’s M18x has more aggressive aesthetics although it can’t be spec'ed out to be as powerful as the Titan 17.
