The big-screen Origin PC Eon17-S gaming laptop won't win any design contests, and isn't particularly portable, but our high-end config was great where it counted -- running new games at high detail settings.
Cramming the most high-end parts into a massive 17-inch body will top $4,000, but you also get a powerful laptop that has more next-gen gaming muscle than any living-room console.
Small-screen gaming laptops are rare because they require serious engineering sleight of hand. The EON13-S walks the line between power and portability, but it would be so much cooler with a custom body.
No one puts together custom high-end gaming laptops, including this desktop-busting 17-inch EON17-SLX, better than Origin, but you'll pay for that expertise.
The Origin PC Eon17-S is one of our go-to big-screen gaming laptops, even if the look is getting dated.
As one of the only 11-inch gaming laptops around, the Origin Eon 11-S is aimed at a select niche, but if you need a supersmall gaming laptop, it fits the bill nicely.
