Origin EON17-S

Laptops
-I'm Dan Ackerman and we are here taking a look at the Origin EON 17-S. Now, when it comes to gaming system from boutique PC makers like origin, you actually usually think of desktop because they can put all the super high powered desktop components inside and build this really elaborate custom chassis around them. They look really cool. They light up in one or other ways. When it comes to laptops, the smaller boutique companies are little bit more limited on what they can do, but they can still do a lot more than, let's say bigger brand like HP or Dell/Alienware can, and the case of this EON 17-S, if this kind of generic looking black laptop box looks a little bit familiar, you probably seen it or some like it somewhere else. It is a generic Clevo case, that's the company that makes stock laptops that the other company is taking and customise them. In this case, what Origin does is they take this Clevo laptop and they put in their own components. They hand tweaked them, they hand assemble them, they test everything, and that's really what you're paying for, that's sort of customization and that attention to detail even it's not as fancy as let's say an HP Envy 17 or an Alienware and the 17-X case because those bigger companies have the ability to sort of fabricate their own custom laptop body. It's what the small boutique, you know, just does not have the resources to do. What you do get in this particular system, and this is the very high end version of this EON 17-S. You'll an Intel Extreme edition Quad Core i7 CPU and it's been overclocked and you also get an NVIDIA Gforce M580 graphics are and that's also been overclocked, that's something super rare. You, basically, I never see a laptop video cards overclocking you, almost, you never see a laptop. CPU is overclocked, but it does happen, when you put all of that together, you get a superpowerful system, although you're gonna pay a lot for that particular configuration. It's about $3600. If you just walk in the door with this particular model, the EON 17-S. It starts about 1600 bucks, but if you really gonna spend 1600 bucks on a fancy gaming laptop, you might get the better deal for the same components from Alienware, one of the mass produced versions stuff like this. Origin is really for people who wanna push the boundary and really get the latest part and get them overclocked and of course get an overclocking sort burned and tested at the factory before they send it to you. So, performance-wise, this laptop is a real beast that contrast kind of with this sort of, you know, generics serviceable, but just okay keyboard and touchpad. I guess if you're gaming, you're probably gonna be using a mouse or a game pad most of the time that will matter as much. We did like there are lot of different ports and connections on this beside HDMI. There's also DVI. There's Firewire. There's an eSATA port. So, you do get a lot of the options that other laptop may usually cutting out one by one to save a little bit of money. If you're thinking of getting one of these guys, obviously saving money is probably the furthest thing from your mind. I'm Dan Ackerman and that this the Origin EON-17s.
