Reviews for the Origin PC EON17-SLX, Haswell

80% Origin EON17-SLX (2014)
Source: PC Mag English
While running down the list of components and specs would make the Origin EON17-SLX (2014) look like simply a refresh of last year's model, the new iteration gets more than a new coat of paint, thanks to an Intel Extreme Core i7 processor and dual Nvidia GeForce GTX 780M GPUs. While the separated touchpad and mouse buttons is a tad off-putting, and the battery life is short (even among short-lived gaming systems), there's no denying the appeal of raw power. With the Origin EON17-SLX outpacing the Alienware 18 with better numbers both in raw performance and gaming, as well as coming in for roughly $800 less, the Origin EON17-SLX handily claims the title of Editors' Choice for high-end gaming laptops.

ORIGIN PC EON17-SLX Gaming Notebook Review - Haswell, GTX 780M SLI
Source: PC Perspective English
As I tend to say during these types of extremely high cost system reviews, this setup isn't for everyone (and, in fact, it isn't for most). A $4,500 gaming notebook like this will surely last you for YEARS of PC gaming while still allowing you to be mobile enough to take your EON17-SLX on the road or to LAN parties with ease. Performance was impressive, not just in gaming but in all CPU-based tasks as well - thanks to the Intel Core i7 Haswell processor and the RAID-0 array of SSDs keeping storage snappy. If you can afford it, the ORIGIN PC EON17-SLX gaming notebook will, without a doubt, leave a positive impression on you in nearly every category.

The EON17-SLX, like Origin's loaded Genesis desktop, is not for everyone. It's too heavy and bulky to be carried around for very long or on a regular basis. Its battery life is as perfunctory as a Porsche's back seat. And it's shockingly expensive. Origin's "Haswell" refresh of the EON17-SLX offers awesome SLI graphics performance, great sound, and a nice display.

70% Origin Eon 17 SLX

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 the fastest we've seen. It doesn't hurt that the notebook resembles a sexy sports car, either.

84% 2-GPU gaming laptop that's powerful, not pretty
Source: CNet English
With the excellent current high-end parts available from Intel and Nvidia, and something of a PC gaming renaissance going on right now, it's great time to be a PC gamer. Systems such as the Origin PC EON17-SLX, with powerful processors and battery-draining dual video cards, are a major investment, but they offer an experience beyond the game console.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M SLI: Two GeForce GTX 780M 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.

» 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.  

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

4.2 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.

78.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
