Origin's EON17 Laptop Has Maxed Out Specs

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 42 comments

If you were looking for something beefy, here it is.

Origin PC is set on making some of the most crazy, over the top computers and they've released a new one called the EON17.

Some of the crazy specifications include dual Nvidia GeForce GTX 480M video cards in SLI and up to 24GB of RAM (that's more RAM than I have in my entire home!).

Specifications

•           17.3 Full HD LED Backlit 16:9 Widescreen, 1920 x 1080

•           Up to Intel Core i7 980X Desktop Processors

•           Up to Dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480M video cards

•           Up to 24GB of Triple Channel DDR3 Memory

•           Up to Three Hard Drives

•           Full Size Keyboard with Numeric Pad

•           HDMI In and Out; Optical Digital Out, up to 7.1 HD

•           Touch Sensitive Multi-gesture Pad and Instant Access Buttons

“We’ve noticed growing demand from the Origin community for a mobile high-performance solution that doesn’t force you to compromise.” said Kevin Wasielewski, CEO and Co-Founder of Origin.  “The EON 17 offers the flexibility of a notebook with unparalleled desktop computing power giving gamers and professionals the best of both worlds.”

Pricing starts at $2,499, but budget for at least twice that much if you're planning on going with the top-end options.

    Fast computers are overrated? Or are you just mad because you can't afford one?

    don't even think of putting a battery in there, or putting it on your lap. that thing is a portable desktop, not laptop.

    Sounds like a sweet desktop replacement, and the prices are competitive too. I can't imagine the battery would last more than a few minutes while gaming though.

    I'd prefer a car, or maybe a house, but it's not up to be the what they wanted it to be if it's only LED backlight, you don't use 3 SSDs in RAID, & where is that docking station BTW? If I could afford this, just for fun, I'd ask Honda to send me one of those 99% silicon refurbish Victoria's Secret robots to deliver the thing ;-)

    I'm not much when it comes to desktop-laptop GPU comparisions (except I know that desktop>laptop GPUs anyday, anytime), so I'm wondering, how does 2 gtx 480M's compare to a single gtx 480, 470, and 460??

    Not sure about the target population.
    is it for gaming purpose or development purpose?
    24Gb = Dev (running VMs), but not the video card
    980x and GTX480 is for gamers, but not the memory...

    so what is the usage for this computer?

    This is just a clevo x7200......Toms hardware does an attrocious job pointing this out when ever they review clevo laptops....they act like the company selling it engineered it from the ground up when all they really did is through their sticker on the lid and offer a warranty.

    Articles like this make people think toms gets paid for these "advertisements"

    And I am totally pro laptops, read my comments in the M17x review, this is just unimpressive (the article, not the laptop, the laptop is awesome)

    Love this company - the old spirit of Alienware didn't die when Dell took over; It lives on reborn @ Origin PC.

    At those prices I might as well spend less than half that for an awesome desktop and then pay a buddy 1500 dollars to build a carrying case to transport it. :p

    What's the car and what model? 2000$ for a car sounds nice as long as it's not a ****** old car that's been used by two dozen other people.
    The starting price seems great though when I look at it first hand, even with 2x460's it seems like a decent price seeing as it's a laptop. Then you try pushing on the actual 24gb and extra's from the starting point and you start going, "Ahh, dreams gone."

    you can choose what GPU you want and how much memory you want. So if you want it for gaming you only buy 6 GB of DDR3 and the best GPU but if you want it for VM you buy the cheapest GPU and lots of memory
