Maingear promises that their new Haswell powered custom computers are faster, more efficient, offer better connectivity, and heightened security compared to older models.
Custom computers from the American company start at US$649.00 for a desktop and US$949.00 for notebooks. While not cheap, the company offers lifetime labor and phone support, as well as a one to three year hardware warranty on its products.
