For whatever reason, Maingear decided that they should stick a full numeric keypad onto a 15-inch laptop. And using whatever magic, they managed to pull it off without creating a monster.

I've got a 12-inch, a 15-inch, and a 17-inch laptop within an arms reach, yet none of them‚ÄĒnot even the 17-incher‚ÄĒhave a full number pad. This makes Maingear's mX-L 15 feel like the odd man out, but boy could it be useful for quicker data entry. Or maybe gaming.

The laptop can now be ordered with Intel Core‚ĄĘ i5 or i7 mobile processors, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 graphics, 802.11b/g/n support, a 2.0MP camera, and an optional SSD. Prices start at $999, ten-key pad included. [Maingear]
