Reviews for the Origin PC EVO16-S 2023
The Origin EON 16SL is a 16-inch gaming laptop that combines a thin and light chassis, a great display with an unreal refresh rate of 240Hz, excellent performance with any demanding title, and even some really cool customization options to make it truly stand out.

The Origin EON16-S lands well as an all-around gaming laptop, finding an appealing balance of power, performance, and price with mostly modest weaknesses. The worst of them is the overly loud fans, which make the EON16-S potentially annoying to use within earshot of other people, while the screen and the keyboard could be better. But even with such drawbacks, this is still a capable pick for gaming on the go.

Capable of well-balanced performance across the board in a respectable if uninspired chassis, the Origin EON16-S is a decent gaming laptop. The value equation isn’t bad, either, but this laptop simply can’t hold a torch to the Lenovo Legion Pro 7i Gen 8. Lenovo's laptop pretty much only fell behind when the Origin’s Samsung 990 Pro SSD comes into play, and that machine continues to hold our Editors' Choice award for midrange value.

It’s unfortunate that a laptop costing nearly $2,000 is what's required for great performance, but the EON16-S' handles it well. With superb 13th Generation Intel Core i9 processing power and solid RTX 4070 graphics bolstered by a quality display and speaker system, it’s shocking that Origin has gotten this laptop under $2,000. While our model was pushed over that price threshold due to additional SSD storage, that component is unnecessary for it to be as impressive as it is at this price. Even when factoring in the underwhelming plastic lid and base, uninspiring deck design, overwhelmingly loud fans and lacking display brightness, the EON16-S has a lot going for it. If you’re willing to spend quite a bit extra for a superbly powerful gaming laptop, we recommend the MSI Raider GE78 HX. Otherwise, the EON16-S is a great budget pick.
