Origin PC Eon17-X (2017)

The Good The Origin PC Eon17-X is a highly customizable 17-inch gaming laptop backed by personalized service. It has a large port and connection assortment, an excellent 4K display, a good RGB backlit keyboard and a touchpad with a built-in fingerprint reader. Excellent service and support package.

The Bad More like a portable desktop than a laptop, the generic-looking Eon17-X is large and heavy and expensive, starting at around $1,800. Its cooling fans are distractingly loud.

The Bottom Line A giant gaming laptop fine-tuned for peak performance, the Origin PC Eon17-X can be as powerful as your wallet will allow.

Review

Configure this massive gaming laptop to your heart's content

The Eon17-X from Origin PC is an antidote to unsatisfying gaming laptops from mainstream manufacturers. 

The massive 17.3-inch desktop replacement is based on a P775DM3-G gaming laptop from OEM/ODM PC manufacturer Clevo. Origin takes it, puts in the components you want, tests the hell out of it to make sure it runs at peak performance and then backs it with personalized service and support that includes lifetime free labor and a year of part replacement. Origin will also paint it for you (for a price, naturally), so the outside is just as customized as the inside. 

As is the case with other boutique system builders, a PC like this comes at a premium. Origin starts the Eon17-X at $1,807 (about AU$2,400 or £1,420) with a dual-core 4.2GHz Core i3 7350K desktop processor, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card, 8GB of 2,400MHz memory, a 250GB Samsung 850 Evo ($100.00 at Amazon.com) Series SSD and a full HD G-Sync IPS display. Our review laptop is nearly twice the price, but has upgrades across the board, and if you go all out on components and services, you can blow right past $6,000.
