Origin Eon 17-S


Like a sequel to your favorite action movie, Origin is back -- with a vengeance. The Eon 17-S (starting at $1,699, configured at $3,669) combines the strength of an Intel Extreme Core CPU with Nvidia's latest high-powered graphics -- the 980M GPU -- to...

Origin EON17-S


The Origin EON17-S is an attractive 17-inch gaming laptop powered by an over-clocked Ivy Bridge CPU and Nvidia's latest GeForce GTX graphics engine. It's big in stature and carries a hefty price tag but it delivers game-worthy performance.

Solid performance. Good audio output. Stylish design.

Expensive. Heavy. Reflective screen.

Conclusion The Origin EON17-S delivers the fast frames rates and processing power that gamers crave. While not as menacing as Alienware's M17x , the EON's rubbery finish and colorful keyboard lighting give it an edgy look, and its audio output is loud...

Origin Eon 17S Review


Gamers looking for a machine that can deal out the Pwnage with impunity need look no further than the $3,370 Origin Eon 17S. It offers an insane amount of power and performance and offers a ridiculous amount of customization. We just wish the inside of...

Face-melting performance and speed, Highly customizable design, Beautiful 17.3-inch full HD display, Good audio

Interior looks plain compared to lid, Keyboard a bit cramped, Loud fan

Origin EON17-S review


The handful of high-end boutique PC builders targeting gamers tend to concentrate more on desktops than laptops. After all, for a desktop you can use faster, more powerful components (although the difference is shrinking every year), as well as...

The Origin EON17-S is a powerful, highly customizable gaming laptop that offers great performance and can even include overclocked components.

The generic chassis doesn't scream high-end construction, and customizing can drive up the price very quickly.

As one of the few high-end boutique gaming PC makers serious about laptops, Origin offers nearly any set of components you'd want in the overclockable, have-it-your-way EON17-S.

TechHive: Which Music Subscription Service Should You Use?

Origin Eon17-S


The Origin Eon17 is a gaming laptop designed with the hardcore gamer in mind. Hardware like the 7970M graphics card and 16GB of RAM complement this gaming system in every aspect. However, the i5 dual-core processor isn't a top-tier CPU, so you may want...

With 16GB of RAM, six hours of battery life and a Radeon HD 7970M video card, the Eon17-S is an ideal laptop for hardcore gamers

The only thing keeping this laptop from ranking among our top picks is that the base model only includes a dual-core i5 processor

The Origin Eon17-S is great if you are looking for a high-end graphics card and extensive battery life, but you may want to upgrade the processor.

Origin EON17-S review


This gaming laptop packs premium performance for a premium price

Attractive chassis ; Incredible audio ; Impeccable performance

Washed out display ; Expensive ; Heavy with a capital "H

Scores in depth There are only a couple of names gamers need to know when in the market for a 17-inch gaming laptop. Falcon Northwest, Asus, MSI, and Maingear all come to mind, but Origin PC is garnering major attention with its EON line. The company...
