Origin EVO15-S review: A portable, powerful Max-Q laptop that does everything right

 

The Origin PC EVO15-S isn't just a good gaming laptop with an Nvidia 1070 Max-Q GPU, it's a good laptop, period.

Great performance ; Thin and fairly light ; Gorgeous 120Hz IPS display ; Sleek and solid overall design

Poor battery life ; Unsatisfying speakers ; No G-Sync

Boutique PC builders like Origin and Falcon Northwest tend to charge more than the big PC companies, but they offer more than just the ability to configure your computer to your heart’s content. Origin PC delivers a superb out-of-box experience.
