Reviews for the Origin PC EON17-X

Though it faces heavy (literally) competition from the largest and costliest gaming rigs, the Origin EON17-X has plenty to offer a gamer who wants cost-no-object performance but objects to a cost of $3,000 or more. Its keyboard and display are good, except for the latter's viewing angles; its speakers are decent; and its performance is blazing fast.

The Origin EON17-X asks users to make little compromise in exchange for its impressive processor power. It’s only a tad larger than competitors from Alienware and Asus, and it’s also not much more expensive. In fact, it’s a bit less expensive than the Asus G751 or Alienware 17 when similarly equipped.
