Origin Eon 17 SLX

 

The Origin Eon 17 SLX offers a jaw-dropping amount of power with a slick chassis and a high level of customization -- if you can afford it.

Elegant inviting design; Strong performance; Face-melting graphics performance; Fast boot and transfer times; Highly customizable specs

Dull screen colors; Awkward mouse-button placement; Expensive; Heavy; Fan gets loud when gaming

Every time we think Origin can't top itself with the overpowered bells and whistles, something like the Eon 17 SLX falls into our laps. Its dual Nvidia GPUs delivered the best graphics numbers we've seen this year, and its CPU and SSDs were also among...

Origin EON17-SLX review: blurring the line between desktop replacement and desktop

 

The EON17-SLX is a gaming powerhouse, but can we really still call it a laptop?

LCD panel offers excellent image quality ; Amazing performance

No touchscreen plus a mediocre touchpad ; Not particularly portable

When financial limits are tossed to the wind, you'll find laptops that offer higher-than-high-end components, opting for absurdly powerful processors instead of the slimmer, battery-friendly CPUs used elsewhere. You'll get not one, but two discrete...

Overclocked quad-core processor. SLI graphics. Giant, fast storage. Customizable keyboard lighting. Windows 8

Crazy-expensive. Delicate 4-pin power jack

The Origin EON17-SLX high-end gaming laptop has the latest and best of everything, from an overclocked quad-core processor to SLI graphics. It's a mean machine, but it costs serious green.

Gamers looking for portable entertainment have always considered the 17.3-inch gaming laptop as the pinnacle of mobile entertainment. Many mainstream consumers look at these products with confusion. Why buy a giant brick that costs thousands of...

The fastest laptop money can buy ; Mid-range variants provide good value ; High build quality ; Great audio

Expensive ; Dull aesthetics ; Poor keyboard backlight controls ; Awful battery life

There’s no game on the market today that can seriously challenge the hardware found in the Origin EON17-SLX.

It's telling that the very first thing I did with this new Windows 8 version of the Origin EON17-SLX desktop replacement gaming laptop was to try and swipe past the Windows 8 lock screen with my finger.

The insanely powerful Origin EON17-SLX can easily handle any PC game, and is configurable enough to fit many budgets. Service and support are stellar.

The generic-looking off-the-shelf body isn't becoming in a $4,000 laptop; Windows 8 feels odd without a touch screen.

No one puts together custom high-end gaming laptops, including this desktop-busting 17-inch EON17-SLX, better than Origin, but you'll pay for that expertise.

Cramming the most high-end parts into a massive 17-inch body will top AU$5000, but you also get a powerful laptop that has more next-gen gaming muscle than any living-room console.

Very powerful ; Highly configurable ; Thunderbolt included

Expensive ; Can't compare with custom designs

Origin EON17-SLX

 

Great review. You've inspired me to start rolling pennies. Seriously. I am a HUGE fan of the G-Series Asus laptops. My first, “Blue”, was a G50-VT that ate everything I threw at it. Asus earned my respect. But this warrants a serious look. The price...
