Get Free SSD, Two Games For Purchasing Origin PC Laptops

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 13 comments

A deal from Origin PC.

On Friday, Origin PC sent out a notice stating that on Monday at 9 a.m. EST, the company will offer a free 240 GB SSD, a free digital copy of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and a free digital copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts with the purchase of an EON17-S or EON15-S gaming laptop. This offer will only be good for a limited time and while supplies last, so if you're shopping for a new gaming notebook, now is the time to buy.

Starting at $1,629, the EON17-S has a number of options to choose from. However, the starting configuration includes a 17.3-inch FHD LED-lit screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The laptop also packs an Intel Core i5-4330M dual-core CPU clocked at 2.80 GHz, 4 GB of DDR3-1333 RAM (2 x 2 GB), and a single Nvidia GeForce GTX 770M GPU (3 GB).

This laptop's base configuration also includes an 8X Slim CD/DVD burner, integrated audio powered by Sound Blaster XFi, a 320 GB hard drive, and a built-in 2MP video camera. There's also Wireless N and Bluetooth connectivity, USB 3.0 ports, an SD card reader, a biometric fingerprint reader, and a customizable backlit keyboard.

The EON15-S starts at $1,535 and features the same base configuration save for the screen, which measures 15.6 inches and has a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Both non-customized laptops will ship with the 64-bit edition of Windows 7 Home Premium. Neither laptop will feature GPU overclocking… that's extra.

This new promotion follows the Valentine's Day deal (now ended) that gave customers free U.S. ground shipping, an Origin PC Edition Razer Taipan Mouse, an Origin PC Edition Razer Goliathus Mouse Mat, professional CPU overclocking, and digital copies of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Call of Duty Ghosts.

    Ugh, using the words "laptop" and "gaming" in the same sentence and then let's add "Origin" to it.Good luck.

    I'm not sure who they are fooling with 4GB of ram at $1600+. They probably have the games in bulk for dirt cheap, and probably lowered the quality of other components so they could say, "free SSD" for marketing purposes, or something along those lines.

    The games are provided as DIGITAL copies? Who'da thunk? How else would they be provided? Via VHS tapes? Pressed into vinyl albums? Perhaps you need to fire up an old TRS-80 cassette drive and feed it 321,213 tapes?

    Using the same mentality from 2007? Gaming and laptops have been used in instances that are quiet good for a while now...SHU program nicka!Origin added to it, however, yes $1600 for 4gb of ram, wow

    For the price of that laptop, it should come with at least a 1TB hard drive, and 32GB of RAM and a good gaming mouse like a logitech G700.

    Well eum other brands have the same specs and are way cheaper so even if you get all that free stuff you will still be cheaper off buying it yourself

    I'd rather get a cheaper laptop, buy myself an SSD and some games and save $200.
