Maingear’s 11.6-inch Pulse 11 gaming laptop starts shipping

Alienware’s M11x may be history, but as these things tend to go, there’s always someone willing to carry the torch. Maingear’s recently-introduced 11.6-inch Pulse 11 just so happens to be that rig in this here story, and those that’ve been waiting won’t have to twiddle their thumbs any longer. The company is shipping the bantam gaming rig in the US starting this week, offering a Core i7 CPU (or a Core i5, if you’d rather), NVIDIA’s Optimus graphics switching (tied to a GeForce GT 650 ‘Kepler’ GPU), 11.6-inch LED-backlit panel (1366 x 768), up to 16GB of DDR3 memory, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, a 9-in-1 card reader, six-cell Li-ion battery and plenty of ports. It’s starting at just $999, but speccing it out all proper like will send the asking price well north of that. (But trust us, it’s worth it.)
