Reviews for the Origin PC EON17-SLX, GTX 980M
That said, if you're a hardcore gamer who craves an absolutely baller set up, but barely has enough room for a PC case, this could be an ideal solution. I can also see the Origin EON17-SLX in the hands of professionals who need to create media on the road and might partake in the occasional fragging session.

The Origin EON17-SLX is better classified as a mobile desktop, rather than a notebook. In the full swing of today's thinness craze, a 10.5-pound notebook is, to put it mildly, a wild standout. Its 1.8-inch-thick, all-black chassis looks positively gigantic next to just about any other notebook.

What the Eon17-SLX offers is two distinct advantages. First, it's future-proofed against at least the next few holiday seasons of new PC games, so it'll be several years before it feels old (today, even laptops with the older, slower Nvidia 860M chip still play most games decently).

The base price of the EON17-SLX is just north of $2,000, but our review unit arrived with a price tag of $3,900, which included a three-year warranty. Without that, you’re looking at about $3,600. Which is a lot. Yet the price doesn’t damage value as much as you’d expect. The Acer Predator 17 we reviewed was $2,600, which means the Origin is about 40 percent more expensive.
