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

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 and robust....

Origin Eon 17-S

 

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 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.

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.
