Origin PC's Eon17-X gaming laptop can be just what you need
The EON17-X from Origin PC is the gaming laptop you want.
And by that I mean, instead of being stuck with a couple configuration options like laptops from big manufacturers, this can be fitted with the components you want.
Starting at about $1,800, you can choose your processor and graphics card, of course.
But then everything in between as well, and performance is, of course, going to come down to what you put in it.
My configuration topped $3,400, including a Core i7 desktop processor, and an Nvidia 1090 GPU.
And it certainly didn't struggle when it came to keeping frame rates playable on its 4k screen on ultra settings.
The EON17-X is undeniably big and heavy though.
And it's fans never seem to quiet down.
This laptop doesn't sit power either.
Running for just over two and a half hours on our streaming video test, so you can expect less when gaming.
But everything else about it is pretty solid, including the three zone RGB keyboard and Windows precision touchpad with a built-in fingerprint reader, and its speakers even sound good.
It's the customization and origin support that's the big deal here though, and you have to be willing and able to pay for it.
