Intel and MAINGEAR Collaboration Unlocks Uncompromised Performance in New Lightweight Notebook Optimized for Creators and Gamers Alike
Kenilworth, NJ (May 26, 2021) – MAINGEAR — an award-winning PC system integrator of custom gaming desktops, notebooks, and workstations — today launched the MAINGEAR ELEMENT Lite, a 15” ultra-premium notebook designed in collaboration with Intel. Featuring Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics and up to an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor, the MAINGEAR ELEMENT Lite pairs next-generation hardware with a sleek and minimal machined aluminum alloy chassis for maximum power, speed, and portability. The new MAINGEAR ELEMENT Lite is the perfect Windows laptop for work and play on the go.
Custom designed and engineered in collaboration with Intel, this uncompromising notebook PC comes equipped with up to an Intel® Core™ i7-1165G7 Processor running at 2.8GHz with a Max Turbo Frequency of 4.7GHz on 4 cores / 8 threads. Integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics make multimedia viewing, content creation, and even light gaming a breeze. ELEMENT Lite systems can be equipped with 16GB of DDR4 memory and up to 2TB of user-replaceable PCI-E Gen4 M.2 NVMe SSD storage. MAINGEAR optimized the ELEMENT Lite to pack exceptional performance and cooling into its frame without sacrificing on battery life or upgradeability. It weighs in at just 3.64 lbs (1.65kg) and is 14.9mm thin — making it the thinnest notebook that MAINGEAR has ever offered.
“Following our successful partnership with Intel in 2019 to launch the original ELEMENT gaming laptop, we’ve once again joined forces for the ELEMENT Lite, an ultra-fast and ultra-portable notebook,” said Wallace Santos, founder and CEO of MAINGEAR. “The MAINGEAR ELEMENT Lite is our most impressive, versatile notebooks yet! It’s lightweight but highly capable, with enough power to handle tough workloads and gaming while traveling.”
The ELEMENT Lite offers users unparalleled creative freedom anytime and anywhere. Beyond its ability to tackle heavy workloads, the ELEMENT Lite features a bevy of ports and high-end connectivity options. Units are outfitted with multiple Thunderbolt 4 and USB 3.2 Gen 3 ports, a Headphone/Mic input, and HDMI Out. Bluetooth 5.1 and WiFi 6 ensure a flawless wireless experience, with fast, hands-free unlocking available thanks to Windows Hello support and a Time of Flight sensor. A quad mic array captures a user’s voice with minimal background noise during calls or gaming, which can also easily command the built-in Amazon Alexa assistant. A vibrant 1080p 15.6” IPS display additionally offers adaptive brightness and contrast enhancement that dynamically adjusts based on a user’s environment.
