Origin EON17-S 17-inch Gaming Notebook Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
PC Perspective have reviewed the Origin EON17-S gaming notebook, which features a 17.3-inch 1920x1080 display, quad-core/eight-thread 4.4GHz factory overclocked processor, 16GB of RAM, dual 120GB SSDs, 1TB 5400RPM HDD and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M 2GB GPU.
Let's see what they had to say:
"The Origin EON17-S is, from a performance standpoint, one hell of a piece of kit. What sets the laptop apart is not the Extreme Edition processor or even the GTX 675M (which is fast, but also obtainable elsewhere). No, the real honors should be given to the pair of Corsair hard drives. Its incredible how quickly software loads on this machine.
Of course, most other companies will let you configure solid state drives in RAID 0, as well. But they usually dont let you replace the optical drive with a mechanical hard drive or offer a third hard drive option. Thats where the EON17-S stands out. You can enjoy insane speeds and still have plenty of room for your files.
If maximum performance is your goal, however, I cant come up with any reason not to buy the EON17-S with RAID0 solid state drives and a GTX 675M."
Weighing in at 8.6lb the Origin EON17-S may not be all that portable, but it is a phenomenal desktop replacement (DTR) gaming notebook. Though for $3,500 it is a touch pricey.
