Reviews for the Origin PC EON15-X

80% Origin PC EON15-X
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
The Origin PC EON15-X starts at a seductive $1,798, the same ballpark as other high end gaming laptops. When configured with a core i7 and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M or 980M, the price creeps north of the $2,000 mark and our decked out 1080p model is a painful $2,737. But if you're in the market for absolute power laptop in a (hefty) 15.6" package, there are few laptops that can touch the EON15-X.

80% Origin EON15-X 4K Gaming Laptop Review
Source: Techspot English
As with other manufacturers, Origin-installed upgrades are costly. Exercise a bit of modesty though and you can snag yourself a fantastic gaming machine for about $2,200 (e.g. Intel Core i5-4690K, 980M, 240GB SSD). At this price, the EON15-X closes in on being competitive with the Alienware 15. Alternatively, opting for a GTX 970M, i5-4460 and 1080p gaming will get you below the $1,800 mark. Relative to its peers, that’s not bad.

70% Origin EON15-X review: You'll find a desktop CPU in this laptop, and that's a good thing
Source: PC World English
For a gaming laptop that’s almost portable, the Origin EON15-X offers performance that’s hard to beat. It doesn’t offer “desktop-class” performance or any of that guff, it actually offers desktop performance in a laptop. Period. That makes the EON15-X a perfect laptop for someone who needs just that. But the costs are obvious. The battery life is pretty dismal (though no worse than what we've seen from other big gaming laptops, such as the MSI GT80 Titan SLI). The real snag for me is the screen. As I said, it’s almost, almost a deal breaker in brightness. Because battery life is already subpar, why not put a little more juice into the screen?

80% Origin EON15-X

The Origin EON15-X is a well-made gaming rig with excellent performance, thanks to a roster of high-end components, like a desktop-class Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia's current top-of-the-line notebook GPU, and a combination of SSD and hard drive storage for fast performance and large capacity. It's a killer gaming rig, and between the faster performance and lower price, it's enough to replace the Asus ROG G751JY-DH72X as our Editors' Choice high-end gaming laptop.

70% Origin Eon15-X
Source: Laptop Mag English
Strong enough to be a high-end desktop, the Origin Eon15-X offers all you've come to expect from a hulking 17-inch chassis in a slightly more portable package. For $2,699, you get a laptop that can deliver excellent frame rates as well as impressive power. However, the $2,279 Gigabyte P35X v3 has comparable performance with longer battery life and a lighter, but drabber, frame.

Comment

Model: The Origin PC EON15-X brings the gaming laptop to a whole new level. Origin has thrown a full blown desktop Intel i7 processor inside this laptop. It features an Intel LGA 1150 socket which means that it can be configured with the Intel Core i7 4790K clocked at 4 GHz and has a Turbo clock speed of 4.4 GHz. This allows desktop like performance on a laptop with similar price to the usual gaming laptops available out there.

However, the desktop processor brings the biggest downside of this laptop; its size. The 15.6 inch laptop weighs at 7.5 lbs (3.4 kg) and is 1.4 inch (3.56 cm) thick. The EON15-X has room for two m.2 PCIe SSDs, with two standard storage bays for SATA SSDs/HDDs supporting up to 4 TB of space and has up to 32 GB of RAM. For all its gaming graphics, it can be configured with the 970M with 6 GB of VRAM or the 980M with 8 GB of VRAM if 6 GB of gaming RAM is somehow too low.

The 15.6 inch display features Full-HD resolution, which is quite low for a ultra high-end gaming laptop. Some would expect a 2K resolution on a laptop with this kind of specs. On the bright side, it has a 16:9 ratio which is better for the eyes and for all sorts of media. According to Origin, the laptop has a gaming time of around 2 hours on its battery but leaving it plugged to the wall is something that a gamer might want to do.
