Road Warriors Rejoice: Maingear Releases Clutch Notebooks

Maingear is releasing a new series of notebooks by the name "Clutch" built for business professionals and students on the lookout for small, powerful, mobile solutions. Offering both a 13.3" and 15.6" screen, these new notebooks are fitted with Intel® Core i series mobile processors, up to 8GB of DDR3-1066 memory, a 512GB SSD HDD, and a (rather bulky) optional docking station for all those inputs and outputs you love so very much. But wait! There's custom etching!

That optional docking station features extra connectivity including VGA, DVI, RJ-45, audio out, USB 2.0 x 4 ports and optional optical disc drives including Blu-ray™. The MAINGEAR Clutch-15 (the one that's 15.6", of course), has a full size keyboard and numeric pad and the option of an Intel® Core™ i7 mobile processor and an Nvidia™ GeForce 330M. Both the Clutch-13 and Clutch-15 integrate Intel’s Always Aware technology that utilizes the system accelerometer to provide display control, hard drive protection, and system security. Multiple log-in failures reveal Intel’s Anti-Theft technology, also activated when the notebook is lost or stolen.

Intel® My WiFi Technology converts either notebook into a Wi-Fi Personal Area Network so you can be the talk of the town in the library or at your local LAN party (note: these are only made for what they call "casual gaming.) You'll ALSO be the talk of the town with the fancy tactile feel of these notebooks, including optional MAINGEAR M.A.R.C. laser etching according to your specifications!
