Maingear Clutch 13
Reviews for the Maingear Clutch 13
Source: Hot Hardware
Overall, the Clutch 13 is a solid choice at $1091 for the base model, but at nearly $1500 like our review unit, it's a much harder sell. While it was definitely quick in multi-tasking and most tasks we threw at it, we expected a better GPU setup and a higher-resolution screen for that price. Also, there's just two USB ports, and both are the older USB 2.0 variety.
