Buy an Origin PC, Get a Tegra Note 7 Free

Talk about a deal! Origin PC announced on Tuesday (opens in new tab) that any customer purchasing a shiny new Genesis, Millennium, Chrono desktop, or any Eon laptop will not only receive a free digital copy of Watch Dogs (opens in new tab), but will also receive a new EVGA Tegra Note 7 tablet while supplies last.

"We’re all huge gamers at Origin PC and Watch Dogs is one of those highly anticipated games that you definitely must play with a friend.  Now whether they own an Origin PC or not, you can still play competitively online with your friends using the new EVGA Tegra Note 7 tablet that comes free with your Origin PC!” said Kevin Wasielewski ORIGIN PC CEO and cofounder.

Launched in December 2013, the Tegra Note 7 features Nvidia’s Tegra 4 SoC powering a 7-inch IPS display with a 1280 x 800 resolution. The tablet also includes 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot for 32 GB of extra storage, and a 4100 mAh battery promising up to 10 hours of HD video playback. There’s also Wireless N and Bluetooth 4.0 LE connectivity, microHDMI output and more.

The big selling point with this tablet is that it supports Nvidia’s DirectStylus tech. According to Nvidia, this patented stylus system is three times more responsive than other solutions on the market, and is the only solution that provides a Chisel-tip stylus. This makes the tablet ideal for note taking, illustration, annotation and so on.

Nvidia’s Tegra Note 7 also features the world’s first High-Dynamic-Range (HDR) camera in a tablet, and Tap-to-Track tech that follows and keeps in focus an object or person chosen by the user. There’s also the PureAudio system featuring two front-facing stereo speakers with a bass reflex port.

As previously stated, the tablet will be offered with an Origin PC for free while supplies last, but normally the Wi-Fi version of the EVGA Tegra Note 7 is $199.99 USD. For more information about the promotion, head here (opens in new tab).

    So buy a rig you can build yourself for 600 dollars for 1200 and and you get a 200 dollar tablet and a game that uses Uplay, no thanks.

    Particularly if that which you have to spend money on is seriously overpriced.

    Maybe if they offered a shield with it too, I'd actually consider buying an over priced PC that I could get value out of.
