Maingear Shoves A Full Numeric Keypad Onto Its MX-L 15 Laptop

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 - not even the 17-incher - have 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 i5 or i7 mobile processors, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 graphics, 802.11b/g/n support, a 2.0-megapixel camera and an optional SSD. Prices start at $US999, 10-key pad included. [Maingear]
