Introducing the PULSE 15


So Thin. So Light. So Powerful.

At only .69” inches thin, the beautiful metal alloy construction of the new MAINGEAR PULSE makes it the most portable high performance gaming notebook that we have ever offered. With a gorgeous matte 1080p display and a compact thin bezel design the PULSE will turn heads while you game anywhere in the world.

Impress. Dominate.

With the full power of a desktop GPU the PULSE will destroy any task or game with ease. The PULSE features the full power of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 desktop graphics card and the latest Intel® i7 Kaby Lake mobile processors. That means it sports the same jaw dropping gaming performance you’ve come to expect on the desktop, in an unbelievably sleek and compact notebook.

Make your PULSE one of a kind with our custom luxury automotive paint finish. Applied in-house by our master painter with over 30 years of experience painting the world’s finest super cars, our auto-quality paint is the same that goes onto the likes of Porsche and BMW.
