Reviews for the Origin PC EON13-S

60% Origin EON13-S
Source: Digital Trends English
Origin’s Eon 13-S is, in many ways, an excellent gaming laptop. There’s plenty of performance on tap for modern games, even at maximum detail, and the high-quality display makes media look its best. At the same time, though, the laptop remains enjoyable to use on as any everyday basis because of its pleasing keyboard and high maximum display brightness.

For those looking at high performance gaming in a compact design, the Origin PC does a very good job of providing all the performance in a relatively small package. The EON13-S may not look fancy, but it certainly packs performance and the solid state drive RAID array is unique amount the systems that have the same base platform.

As is often the case with gaming laptops from boutique PC makers, the Origin PC EON13-S is a case of loving the inside, but not the outside. Still, the thick 13-inch body is far from unusable, and you can definitely fit it in a modest shoulder bag for easy transit.

Comment

Model:

With a name as epic as Origin PC EON13-S, one might expect a spaceship of a laptop, all futuristic and drool-worthy. Unfortunately, what you get is a 13 inch laptop that looks like it came from about 5 years ago. It's grey and unimpressive. At 13 inches, it offers portability, with more power than any other 13 inch machine out there. This machine is geared towards gamers, but unfortunately Origin did not make a customized chassis, so there are a dearth of gamer inspired innovations to be found like one might find on the competition. The keyboard and touchpad seem fine for casual use, but not too impressive by gaming standards. A highlight is the full HD IPS display, but with a screen as small as this, most users will be utilizing the HDMI port if they intend to really get their game on.

With the Intel Core i7-4900MQ processor and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M running things, this machine can play demanding games with no problems in its native resolution, with high detail level. The most demanding games may need the settings knocked down a few notches though, but with a screen this small, it can be harder to tell the difference. In this respect the Origin PC EON13-S keeps abreast of the competition with no problems. Despite the portable size, a gaming laptop will not offer much in terms of battery life and this machine is no exception. Overall, this is a great tiny gaming machine, despite the unimpressive looks.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M SLI: Two GeForce GTX 765M graphics cards in SLI combination.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4900MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.8 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Origin PC: This US-American computer shop sells its own laptop brand with low market share.


73.67%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
