The perfect balance of power and portability

Laptops powerful enough to run demanding applications like games have always been about balance. They need powerful processors and graphics, but they also must be extremely power efficient or the heatsinks and batteries get big and heavy. For the "thin & light" TLX, this has always meant striking the perfect balance between power, weight, thickness, and battery life. Over the years the TLX has evolved, getting gradually more powerful, thinner, and lighter. Our newest TLX however, isn't so much a product of technological evolution. It's the result of a revolution in design.


Designed with a little help from our friends...

Our newest TLX is now crash-diet skinny. At only 0.8" (2 cm) thick, it's just barely taller than a penny. Weighing 4.75 pounds, it's also one of the lightest gaming laptops ever made. But don't let this light weight fool you - lurking inside is desktop-class performance we couldn't dream of just a year ago. How can the TLX be that thin? Credit goes to NVIDIA's new Max-Q design. Max-Q is an innovative approach to designing the world’s thinnest, fastest, and quietest gaming laptops. Everything’s engineered for the ultimate thin gaming laptop experience, including the GPU, drivers, thermal and electrical components, and more.

TLX is loaded with connectivity options

  • 2 USB 3.1 (type C)
  • 3 USB 3.0

Unlike many notebooks, the TLX squeezes a full keyboard with numeric keypad into its 15" width. There's plenty of palm-rest space, and the trackpad is offset to center on the main keyboard. The trackpad also features an integrated fingerprint scanner for optional biometric security. LEDs light up your keyboard for nighttime use, and can be configured using an app to any color(s) you choose. You can match or contrast your keyboard to your main paint color. Variable brightness and off settings ensure the best balance of light level vs. battery life.


Each TLX is as individual as its owner.

Every TLX is custom painted in the automotive finish of your choice. Any color you can imagine. Even any custom artwork you can imagine is available. Check out the custom painting section for more information and to start envisioning yours.

"The smooth candy paint job is a stand-out feature on this machine. With Falcon Northwest you know good and well you're getting your money's worth in exterior looks, while the NVIDIA/Intel combo inside brings the combo to be beat for high-powered processing."
