Origin Eon 17-S – Review
Source: Gadgetmix English
The Origin Eon 17-S is a typical boutique gaming notebook – full of high-end components crammed into a lightly-modified version of a Clevo chassis. As far as battery life goes, with overlocked CPU and graphics card, power demand is gonna be pretty high, so 2 hrs 20 in a video-looping test is very impressive.

Origin EON17-S – Desktop power in notebook package!

Despite slowly but surely getting accustomed to my new keyboard (I’m not telling what I’m writing this on!) my hands are still in pain. Although some might argue that the pricing for the Origin EON17-S is a little bit over the top, even the base model comes in with some really awesome options for the gamer within.

80% Origin EON 17-S: Big Performance, Big Price, and Just Plain Big
Source: PC World English
Overall, the Origin EON 17-S offers superb performance in general-purpose and media-authoring environments, and better-than-average performance in most games. It’s pricey, though, at around $3400 as tested. For that amount of money, you get a system with lots of RAM, fast storage, and an impressive CPU. All of that makes up somewhat for the laptop's relatively undistinguished appearance and excess bulk.

93% Origin EON17-S Gaming Notebook Review
Source: Tweaktown English
When you take into account the performance shown was around double that of the next highest-performing machine, the value really starts becoming apparent. The price tag is also, surprisingly, only about double the next closest machine. Normally to get into this top-tier of performance, you end up paying a bit extra, a "luxury tax" of sorts. The performance level doesn't usually increase in a linear manner with price. In this case, however, it has done just about that. It's undeniable that the EON17-S is the highest performance laptop to come through the TweakTown labs. Because of that, it's being awarded with our Performance Award. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

Another interesting note is that all work done by Origin is free regardless of whether you are in warranty or not. An out-of-warranty PC is repaired for just the cost of parts. Origin also offers 24/7 US-based phone support. I can highly recommend both the system and the company. Due to the absolutely awesome performance, all-around quality, and reasonable price tag exhibited from this pint-sized machine, I've awarded the Origin EON11-S with our Editor's Choice award.

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. However, if you're not a big fan of glossy screens you may want to consider spending your $3,500 elsewhere. At the end of the day, if you must have the very best gaming laptop on the block the Alienware M18x is still the king of the hill, but it costs around $1k more than the EON17-S.

If maximum performance is your goal, however, I can’t come up with any reason not to buy the EON17-S with RAID0 solid state drives and a GTX 675M. It’s insane what this laptop is capable of. Frankly, I’m a little jealous, because this laptop easily outperforms my desktop. Maybe it’s time for an upgrade.

Origin’s Eon 17-S reminds us of Brienne of Tarth, the star-crossed female knight from Game of Thrones: It’s massively powerful, but very plain to behold. If that bothers you, spring for one of Origin’s optional finishes (which range from $99 to $249), or go whole-hog with a completely custom paint job ($149 and up).

Gamers looking for a machine that can deal out the Pwnage with impunity need look no further than the $3,370 Origin Eon 17S. It offers an insane amount of power and performance and offers a ridiculous amount of customization. We just wish the inside of the notebook looked as good as the outside and that all the keys were full size. Those with tighter budgets might want to check out the $1,899 Samsung Series Gamer. But the Eon 17S is an excellent choice for gamers searching for a sweet tricked-out rig.

The Origin EON17-S isn't for fashionistas. It's bulky, heavy, and very generic-looking, and it costs nearly $3500 in a world of slick $1000 ultraportables. That said, it offers excellent performance, lots of fast storage, 16GB of RAM, and decent gaming capabilities. Plus, its audio is above average, even for the desktop replacement category. So if you're looking to lug around 11 pounds of power, the EON17-S might be for you.

Despite its boxy, generic-looking shell, the Origin EON17-SLX is a stunning performer in our test configuration, with a phalanx of top-notch components that put up some of the best benchmark numbers we've seen. And even shaving $2,500 or so off the price and opting for something closer to the base configuration, it's still a formidable rig with a matte 1080p screen that will make today's games look great.

70% Origin EON17-SLX review: blurring the line between desktop replacement and desktop
Source: PC World English
The Origin EON17-SLX is an absolute powerhouse, but I worry that it’s too much of a desktop replacement. Let me explain: the laptop is heavy (it weighs 9.2 pounds, and its power block weighs 3.8 pounds for a total weight of 13 pounds), it has poor battery life, and it will definitely benefit from several external peripherals. For example, you’ll definitely need to hook up a mouse, an optical drive (Origin sends a slim Blu-ray drive with the system for an extra $113), and possibly a speaker system.

Origin’s EON17-SLX is every gamer’s dream. It doesn’t just play games well; it sneaks behind them, puts them in a chokehold, and forces them to say bad things about their mothers. Only Nvidia 3D vision (an optional extra not found on our review unit), in combination with a demanding title at maximum detail, might challenge the hardware in this laptop.

The Origin PC EON17-S offers a solid level of performance that will likely appeal to any mobile gamer. The 17-inch system even in its base form offers a very pleasant gaming system. This is helped by the default SSD used for the primary storage drive. Performance can be improved by customizing the system but for many it probably isn't worth the added cost.

80% Origin EON17-S review: This gaming laptop is an absolute beast
Source: PC World English
Like I said, I’m a gamer who prefers desktops. But if I had to choose a laptop for my gaming needs, the Origin EON17-S would be very high on my list. This beast of a machine is expensive, but it’s an absolute powerhouse. It all comes down to what you’re looking for. The EON17-S is definitely a desktop replacement that’s not meant to be carried around day to day. But it’s a great choice for college students or people who plan on moving every couple of years, since a laptop is much easier to pack up than a multimonitor desktop setup. It’s also great for LAN parties, but really, who does that anymore?

The Origin EON17-S puts in a good showing as a lighter-weight alternative to 10-pound gaming laptops like the Alienware 17 and the Origin EON17-SLX. It also has two more hours of battery life than either. That said, the Origin EON17-SLX has more braggable performance numbers on the 3D gaming tests, thanks to its dual GPU setup, and it'll cost you about $100 less, so it holds on to the Editors' Choice for high-end gaming laptops.

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 mobile solution. It will always be more cost-effective to build your own gaming PC, but the service and support that Origin provides is impossible to replicate going that route. Plus, the extra niceties included in that price, namely the bundled mouse, could leave you set with this gaming laptop for a while.

Comment

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


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

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M:

High-end mobile GPU based on a the GF114 chip with all shaders enabled.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M:

An upcoming high-end graphics card for large notebooks expected to launch with Ivy Bridge processors in the first half of 2012

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M SLI: High-end SLI-setup of two GeForce GTX 680M, based on the Kepler-architecture and manufactured in 28nm.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M: High-end graphics card of the GeForce 700M series based on the Kepler architecture.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M: High-end graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.  

2920XM: Fastest mobile Quad-core processor in Q1 2011 based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

3920XM: Fastest Ivy Bridge mobile CPU (and fastest mobile CPU at all) at the time of arrival (April 2012) and clocked at 2.9 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.8 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1300 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller. Compared to the other quad-core it features a 10W higher TDP of 55W.

3940XM: Fastest Ivy Bridge mobile CPU (and fastest mobile CPU at all) at the time of arrival (September 2012) and clocked at 3.0 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.9 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller. Compared to the other quad-core it features a 10W higher TDP of 55W.

4930MX: Mobile quad-core processor based on the Haswell architecture. Fastest CPU in Q2/2013 with an unlocked multiplier.


17.3: Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.9 kg:

This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.

4.2 kg:


80.52%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
