Introduction

Maingear is another American boutique builder that focuses on gaming laptops, desktops and workstations. The company was originally founded in 2002 when the founder and CEO and his partner decided to move towards gaming systems and customer service.

 

Maingear has since been growing strongly every year. In 2010, they were one of the first system builders to have a gaming machine based upon Intel's new i7-980X, which is a pretty big deal. Maingear is a truly enthusiast company with a focus on the customer rather than the bottom line.

 

The direct competition that the Maingear Vybe 15 will be in today is with the GIGABYTE P2542G that we reviewed a few weeks ago. Both are quad-core systems based upon the 660M and both utilize a full HD 1080P screen, so the benchmark numbers should come out fairly close together.

 

With that in mind, let's take a look at the Maingear Vybe and see how it compares to the other systems we've had through the lab.
