Maingear Pulse 17 review: portability, paint and power come at a hefty price

Maingear’s Pulse 17 is a powerful and gorgeous laptop, crammed full of high-end specs and wrapped up in a sports car shell. The only downside is that you’ll be shelling out the better part of three grand just to get one on your desk.

Pros
  • Powerful
  • Thin chassis makes it more portable than other 17-inch gaming laptops
  • Great display and sound
Cons
  • Sportscar finish is an expensive add-on
  • Weak backlight
  • Soft keyboard
