Origin Eon 17-S Review

Digitaltrends
22 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Origin’s founders know a thing or two about manufacturing no-holds-barred PCs: They all worked at Alienware before Dell acquired and commoditized the boutique builder (much as HP would do with Voodoo PC just a few months later). The Origin Eon 17-S reviewed here is the epitome of the boutique notebook PC, a budget-be-damned monster that destroys both benchmarks and bank accounts. Origin doesn’t build their rigs from scratch, though.
  • Pros: Overclocked top-of-the-line components deliver incredible performance, Very nice display
  • Cons: Pedestrian looks, Poor trackpad, No optical drive (bay occupied by third hard drive)

Origin Eon 17S Review

LAPTOP Magazine
17 May 2012
  • Summary: Gamers looking for a machine that can deal out the Pwnage with impunity need look no further than the $3,370 Origin Eon 17S. It offers an insane amount of power and performance and offers a ridiculous amount of customization. We just wish the inside of the notebook looked as good as the outside and that all the keys were full size. Those with tighter budgets might want to check out the $1,899 Samsung Series Gamer.

Origin EON17-S Notebook Review

maximum pc
16 August 2011
  • Excerpt: When the large, wooden crate branded “Origin” arrived at our Lab, we got out our crowbar and a shotgun—one to open the dang thing and the other just in case an alien predator was lurking inside. Once we blasted the box apart, we were not just relieved, we were also a bit disappointed to find an average-looking 17-inch notebook inside. After a bit of testing, though, there was no question—the cleanup of shell fragments was worth it.
  • Pros: Very fast overclocked performance; display offers rich, deep colors.
  • Cons: Expensive

Origin EON17-S review

TechRadar UK
27 June 2014
  • Summary: This gaming laptop packs premium performance for a premium price
  • Pros: Attractive chassis, Incredible audio, Impeccable performance, I might be partial to the EON17-S because of its Lamborghini intimations, but this is a machine that sets itself apart without being flamboyant about it. Save for the flared lines on the lid and illuminated trackpad, all the extra flourishes – from the massive vents around back to the built-in equalizer light – serve a purpose. Unlike the Alienware 17, the EON17-S can turn heads without being obnoxious, all...
  • Cons: Washed out display, Expensive, Heavy with a capital "H", The only disappointment here was the screen. It has a fast enough refresh rate and almost no perceptible lag for gaming, but the screen just lacks color depth. The real shame is the lack of popping colors can poorly present the graphical fidelity that the EON17-S' high-end parts can produce.
