Reviews for the Maingear Titan 17

90% Maingear Titan 17
Source: Computer Shopper English
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.

Maingear Titan 17 Notebook Review

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.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 485M:

High End graphics card based on a full GF104 chip and significantly faster than the 480M.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

17.3": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

5.5 kg: This laptop is heavy. Especially desktop replacements with 19 inch display fit in this class of weight. This class is too heavy, even for 17 inch DTR.


Maingear: US-American computer manufacturer, founded in 2002 with low international relevance.


90%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
