Origin EON17-S

 

The Origin EON17-S delivers as a high-end gaming laptop with the latest performance components from Intel and Nvidia.

Large, bright screen. Blu-ray player. Powerful Intel Extreme Core i7-4940MX processor. Nvidia GeForce GTX 880M graphics. Spacious, speedy storage. 802.11ac Wi-Fi

Bulky. Pricey. Old-school power jack. Short battery life. Almost the same price as dual-GPU model

Origin's founders know a thing or two about manufacturing no-holds-barred PCs: They all worked at Alienware before Dell acquired and commoditized the boutique builder (much as HP would do with Voodoo PC just a few months later). The Origin Eon 17-S...

Overclocked top-of-the-line components deliver incredible performance ; Very nice display

Pedestrian looks ; Poor trackpad ; No optical drive (bay occupied by third hard drive)

The machine we reviewed was packing heat, starting off with Intel’s best mobile CPU: The brand-new Core i7-3920XM Extreme Edition.

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.

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.

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

Hands down, the Origin EON17-S is a superior value in face of the competition, despite it's seemingly enormous price. If you lack the time or patience to pore over power supplies, cases, monitors and more, this is a solid starting point and a more...
