More Details

The Raptor MX40's ultra sharp 14.0" Full HD (1920x1080) LED-Backlit Display shows off your movies, projects and games in crystal-clear full 1080p so you get the best multimedia experience possible both at home and on the go.

The MX40 is powered by discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti with Optimus Technology to give you just the right combination of graphic performance and battery life for your needs. Perfect for home office use, video streaming, or a stunning mobile gaming experience.
A thin and light design usually signals a laptop that's severly underpowered. Until now. At less than 1" thick, the Raptor MX40 is as slim as most Ultrabooks and at just 4.4 pounds, just as light. But this laptop is no lightweight when it comes to performance. Powerful hardware coupled with Velocity Micro's custom tuning and tweaking expertise mean you'll never have to choose between performance and aesthetics ever again.
Wait less. The Raptor MX40 is compatible with PCIe Gen3 x4 SSDs for load speeds up to 2200MB/s. That means lightning fast boot times and incredible overall performance when you need it most.
The integrated Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 802.11ac Wi-Fi+Bluetooth adapter lets you move at the speed of life with faster wireless speeds (up to 867Mbps), higher capacity, broader coverage and longer battery life. Combined with Intel Core processors and exceptional Intel Wireless innovations, this component dramatically reshapes your connected experience. Bluetooth 4.0 allows for faster, more reliable wireless connection to compatible peripherals.
This sleek illuminated keyboard is fully programable to complement the modern asthetics and design of the MX40. Customize individual hot keys to personalize your gaming style.
If you’ve ever bought a computer from the behemoth, mass produced competition, you know bloatware. Free trials you don’t want, software you didn’t ask for, search bars you’ll never use – all choking your system. We don't do it, and we never will. With Velocity Micro, we only install what you as us for, and not a thing more.
