We were big fans of last year's version of the of the Origin PC Eon 17x, and this year's edition is even better, and more expensive.
The Eon 17x, which now starts at just over two grand, is essentially a desktop gaming system crammed into a laptop.
It's not the heaviest 17 inch laptop on the market But it is massive.
The modest battery life presumes you won't stray too far from the wall socket.
The benefits of all that bulk are significant, however.
In every one of our benchmark tests, the EON 17x simply annihilated the competition, and our higher end configuration didn't even come with every top shelf component.
Origin PC offers.
That noted, the company provides tons of options to choose from.
Pick the best of everything and you'll need to shell out about 10 grand.
The 17.3" HD G-sync, IPS display looks crisp and bright.
The full size keyboard and number pad are comfortable to type on and feature four zones of color configurable backlighting.
Though the default design is a bit dated, the EON17-X provides plenty of options for customization, and it comes equipped with virtually every port and slot that a laptop could.
This year's Eon 17x delivers exactly what you'd expect from a laptop that starts at around 2 grand, but can go way higher.
At a minimum, you're going to get a gigantic, well-designed gaming system, that delivers competent performance, a solid display, and tons of ports and For superior performance simply add money.
