The high end custom PC manufacturer Origin PC has announced their latest product, the EON17-X desktop replacement laptop, a portable system that is set to shake grounds…and probably empty your pockets at the same time.
While the price tag doesn’t always reveal the true story, watching more closely the specifications at hand, the price may be justified in a way: equipped with Intel’s latest X79 chipset and the 2nd generation of Intel hexcore processors, it’s paired with overclocked Nvidia GeForce GTX 580M graphics in SLI configuration.
For a laptop, it certainly signals a very high performance that is only complimented with its style, including Origin’s first laptop equipped with a customizable backlit keyboard with two lighting zones and seven colour options.
“ORIGIN is thrilled to answer our customers’ requests by adding a customizable backlit keyboard to the EON17-X.” said Kevin Wasielewski ORIGIN PC CEO and co-founder. “The EON17-X is more powerful than a lot of desktops on the market. With an Intel X79 chipset and dual overclocked NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580Ms in SLI you won’t find a more powerful laptop anywhere else.”
Memory wise, you won’t be bottlenecked, with the choice between up to 32GB at 1333MHz of Corsair memory or up to 16GB at 1866MHz of Corsair Vengeance memory.
“We are pleased with ORIGIN PC’s choice of Vengeance high-performance memory for the EON17-X,” said Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. “It’s designed to automatically take advantage of the faster memory speeds made possible with Intel 2nd generation processors and helps fulfill ORIGIN PC’s mission of building a premium performance laptop.”
Storage is as highly offering as the rest, with up to three hard drives of up to 3TB of space.
Available now, you can equip your chosen model with 3D, while a built-in 3D emitter will come early Q2.
Starting at the price of $3,159, the EON17-X comes with free life-time 24/7 phone and online service support (based in the United States) and each customer has a dedicated support team and free life-time labor for upgrade needs. Additionally, Origin PC offers a 1 to 3 free part replacement warranty combined with the best in class integration, quality testing and support.
