If you’ve been looking for a laptop that will easily leave your gaming desktop in the dust, then checking out the EON17-S might be a good idea. Origin PC, a custom PC manufacturer based in Miami, has announced that their new EON17-S gaming notebook will have the option for a factory overclocked processor in addition to some other top notch and expensive components.
According to the company, their EON17-S systems can now be equipped with a Quad-Core Intel Extreme Edition Core i7-2920XM processor overclocked to either 4.5GHz or 3.9GHz. However, for those interested, this extra power will cost over a grand ($1,144 for the 4.5GHz overclock and $1,094 for the 3.9GHz overclock) more than the standard Core i5-2520 processor.
Now if you’re still looking to add to the machine’s spec list and price tag, then the EON17-S can also be outfitted with either an NVIDIA GeForce GTX460M or an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 485M GPU along with the choice of multiple Solid-State drives with a capacity of up to 512GB. In addition, the notebook will come with up to 32GB of RAM, a Full HD 17.3” screen with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, Wi-Fi, a 2.0MP Webcam, HDMI and a customizable laptop cover.
Now you may be wondering what the whole package actually totals up to? Well at first, the standard configuration’s price of $1,759 may seem slightly reasonable, but adding on all the goodies will boost that price all the way up to a whopping $12,263. So if you’ve been debating between buying a car or a new gaming laptop then head on over to Origin’s site and decide for yourself. After all, it does come with a free Origin T-Shirt as well!
