Origin PC Now Offering Touch-Enabled Win 8 PCs

Origin PC said on Friday that it is now shipping touch-enabled laptops and desktops with Windows 8 including the EON15-S and EON17-S gaming laptops, and the Genesis Pro and Chronos Pro professional desktops.

"What I love about Windows 8 is its insanely fast boot up and its intuitive new start menu that allows instant access to everything you need, including all of your favorite PC games and apps." said Kevin Wasielewski, CEO/Co-Founder of Origin PC.

According to the company, the custom-built EON17-SLX laptop will feature a built-in multi-touch trackpad. The other Windows 8 systems will support 3rd-party Microsoft-certified touchscreen monitors and multi-touch peripherals like Logitech's awesome Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad T650.

"All Origin PC systems can now be fully equipped with Microsoft's latest operating system and we are extremely excited to be one of the first to start shipping systems with Windows 8 to our customers," Wasielewski added.

Origin PC offers twelve different Windows 8-ready models spanning gaming and professional desktops and laptops. Gaming desktops include the Genesis, Millennium and Chronos models, and the EON11-S, EON15-S and EON17-S models are the company's gaming laptops. For professionals, the company offers the Genesis Pro, Millennium Pro and Chronos Pro desktops, and the EON11-S Pro, EON15-S Pro and EON17-S Pro laptops.
