Reviews for the Maingear eX-L 15

Of course, Maingear could have screwed this up by choosing an inferior chassis for their product, but fortunately the Clevo-supplied chassis is a great platform. The display is another of the laptop’s high-points, and the audio, while not best-in-class, is certainly better than much of the competition. My only complaints are the small touchpad and the high system temperatures. If you need an kick-ass, jaw-dropping mobile gaming powerhouse, the Maingear eX-L15 will serve you well.

At nearly 7 pounds without the power brick, the laptop's weight is reasonable, though a little hefty, for a high-performance gaming unit. The 180W power brick boosts the weight to a backache-inducing 9 pounds, 3 ounces. But if you're looking for great gaming performance, don't mind carrying a little more weight, and have deep pockets, Maingear's EX-L 15 gets the job done.

The eX-L 15 didn't lose a single performance benchmark when pitted against recently reviewed systems, even those built around the same Sandy Bridge platform. Equipped with a Intel Core i7 2720QM processor and Nvidia GeForce 485M, the eX-L 15 lived up to Maingear's lofty claim, at least within the stable of the system's we've recently reviewed.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce GTX 485M:
High End graphics card based on a full GF104 chip and significantly faster than the 480M.With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
2720QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
