Reviews for the Origin PC EON18

82% Origin EON18
Source: CNet English
How much is a gaming laptop worth? That depends on how much of a gamer you claim to be. Not that many years ago, gaming laptops were the domain of boutique outlets that focused on build-your-own solutions. For an extreme visit into ultracustomizable large-scale gaming laptops, the Origin EON18 offers just about everything, provided you can live with an extremely large and unwieldy box.

Yes, the Origin EON18 costs and weighs as much as a good used car, but it performs more like a Ferrari—if Ferraris came with howitzers. It blows by almost every other gaming notebook—and for $5,952, it should. But even in a market segment where cost is no object, some may find the EON18’s price difficult to swallow when the Alienware M17x offers better gaming performance and costs over $1,000 less.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M:

The GeForce GTX 280M is based on the G92b chip with all 128 pipelines and, as a result, shares more similarities to the desktop 9800 GTX+ than the desktop GTX 280. Regardless, the high clock rate makes the GTX 280M considerably faster than the 9800M GTX.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


P8700:

Mid-range dual core processor with 3 MB level 3 cache and a TDP of 25 Watt.

18.4": 18 inch display size is a rare and very big size for desktop-replacement laptops. Laptops with 18 inch displays did not exist before 2008. 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.


5.6 kg: This laptop is heavy. Especially desktop replacements with 19 inch display fit in this class of weight. This class is too heavy, even for 17 inch DTR.


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


76%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
