Linus Tech Tips x MAINGEAR ELEMENT Giveaway

Linus Secret Shopper Series

As a collaboration between MAINGEAR and Intel, the new MAINGEAR ELEMENT has been custom designed and engineered from the ground up to be the definition of the ultimate gaming notebook experience. By partnering with Intel, we were able to push performance and battery life even further on the ELEMENT, optimizing every detail.

The Essence Of Gaming

The new MAINGEAR ELEMENT is the thinnest, lightest, and most advanced gaming notebook we have ever offered. Inspired by minimalist design philosophy and using its thin profile and timeless materials to rebel against the dated, overly aggressive gamer aesthetic of yesterday, the ELEMENT is the perfect laptop for both work and play.

Stop Dropping Frames

Powered by the 9th Gen Intel i7-9750H and up to the NVIDIA RTX 2070 Max-Q the ELEMENT delivers an incredibly fluid gaming experience paired with an ultra-smooth, narrow bezel 144hz 15.6 IPS display. With up to 32GB of DDR4 memory and 2TB of blazing fast NVMe storage the ELEMENT is optimized for the modern gamer and content creator.

Not Your Average Gaming Laptop

With its magnesium alloy chassis, the ELEMENT is incredibly light at 4.07 lbs. yet also has the largest battery of any gaming laptop we have ever offered at 94 Wh, delivering up to 10 hours of battery life. Standing out in a sea of mediocre gaming notebooks that only focus on internal specs, the ELEMENT is not only a great gaming notebook, but a notebook that was designed to be a joy to use.


Intelligently optimize your laptop for the outstanding graphics performance you need—when you need it—while extending battery life for longer enjoyment.

Whisper Mode

Now your plugged-in laptop runs much quieter while gaming. This mode intelligently paces the game’s frame rate while also configuring the graphics settings for optimal power-efficiency.

Battery Boost

Lose the laptop charger and game on the go. NVIDIA Battery Boost™ delivers the performance and extended battery life you need to outgun your opponents.

Precision Control

Get an edge on the competition with tactile precision. With a keyboard that uses silent Optical-mechanical switches individually lit by addressable RGB LEDs, paired with a silky-smooth glass touchpad, the ELEMENT combines accuracy and speed that never holds you back.

Escape The Heat

Engineered to keep you gaming in the most strenuous environment, the dual fan cooling system is thermally balanced to deliver maximum performance and minimum noise and the magnesium chassis stays remarkably cool even during long gaming sessions

Windows Hello

Stream online on-the-go and easily log into Windows with an integrated HD webcam and microphone with support for Windows Hello.

The Future of Connectivity

The ELEMENT features everything you need with Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.2 Gen 2, and WIFI 6 wireless ( 802.11ax), high speed SD card reader, and 1G Ethernet.

You Can Be Next
