Reviews for the Origin PC EON17-S

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!
Source: Gaming Rig English
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.

If you dream of the performance boost you can only get by overclocking but are afraid of a DIY approach, Origin’s laptop provides an excellent solution.

The handful of high-end boutique PC builders targeting gamers tend to concentrate more on desktops than laptops. 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.

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.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M:

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

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

» 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. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.

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

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
