Reviews for the Origin PC EVO16-S i7-9750H RTX 2080 Max-Q
Ever wanted a gaming laptop but felt that a 17.3-inch display might be too big and a 15.6-inch display might be too small? Then this high-power 16.1-inch Origin PC EVO16-S should fit the bill.
Powerful enough to run anything at highest settings, surprisingly light and feature-rich, the Origin Evo16-S is ideal for gaming while on the go. It’s got its share of flaws – we couldn’t get that fingerprint reader to work, and the speakers are boxy sounding. But overall, this one’s a win for Origin.

Origin's high-end thin-and-light gamer, the EVO16-S, offers a unique 16.1-inch display and good performance for a laptop this size. It's a square alternative to mainstream offerings, even if it doesn't top them in any major way.

In the time since I received a review unit, Origin PC was acquired by Corsair. Now I can’t stop thinking about the kind of impact this might have on how Origin sources its laptop designs. Currently, Origin sources its laptop designs from an original design manufacturer (ODM), but I’d love to see what could happen if chassis design was done internally. Corsair’s ownership of Origin PC may not have any impact on product design, but if the EVO 16-S is any example, it would be better for everyone if that happened.

Origin PC is a US-American brand for laptops and desktops, especially for gaming. There are few reviews, the first one appeared in 2014. The ratings are average.
75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
