Anything that is called the NOMAD 17 has to be good, it just sounds good right from the start it and it comes in six cool colour combinations that relate to European sports cars such as Ferrari, Porsche and BMW! Already the Nomad 17 is interesting and we have not even spoken about the specs or features yet. This laptop is clearly aimed at the gamers market; it has a large 17.3 inch display, Intel Core processor, HM77 chipset and Nvidia graphics. However, it does not stop there because there are lots of options available for storage, memory and graphics cards, so if the buyer is tempted by what is on offer the final price tag could be as high as $2,000, but for a top of the range gaming laptop, that is not a bad price.
