Origin EON15-X review

 

A desktop replacement out of its time

Amazing performance ; Brilliant G-Sync display ; Fantastic speakers ; Excellent keyboard

Mighty expensive ; Basic build quality for the price

Sadly, it’s hard to heartily recommend the EON15-X, though not because of any failing on its part (beyond an exorbitant price). Simply, 15-inch gaming laptops have massively leveled up since we’ve last reviewed this one, to the point where even a...

Origin EON15-X review: You'll find a desktop CPU in this laptop, and that's a good thing

 

If you can't get your portable computing on with anything less than 4GHz, Origin PC has the answer: a laptop with a Devil's Canyon chip inside of it.

Desktop CPU that cruises at 4GHz all day ; nVidia's top of the line GeForce GTX 980m gives you top flight gaming

Battery life, as expected, is dismal

After our review ran Origin PC contacted us to say the low brightness issue on our review unit wasn't to spec. Although the unit didn't appear to have any thing obviously damaged such as the backlighting section off. Origin PC officials said they spec...

Origin EON15-X

 

The Origin EON15-X is a high-end gaming laptop that delivers strong processing power and serious gaming performance.

Desktop-class processor. Solid gaming performance, thanks to an Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M graphics card. Lots of storage space with a speedy PCIe-connected solid-state drive. Keyboard has customizable backlighting.

Short battery life. No touch screen or optical drive.

Conclusion The Origin EON15-X is a well-made gaming rig with excellent performance, thanks to a roster of high-end components, like a desktop-class Intel Core i7 processor, Nvidia's current top-of-the-line notebook GPU, and a combination of SSD and...

The Origin PC Eon15-X is a gaming laptop that's part desktop

 

Origin PC takes a high-end gaming laptop and adds a desktop CPU for more power.

Origin PC adds a more powerful desktop CPU to a laptop body without adding a lot of bulk. Excellent gaming performance, even at 4K.

Like most boutique gaming laptops, the generic body looks and feels dated. No touchscreen options. High-end parts can get expensive.

The Origin PC Eon15-X gets a boost by combining a desktop CPU with laptop graphics, but the benefit is really felt in nongaming performance.

Origin Eon15-X

 

Don't let the cute Steven Universe print on our custom Origin Eon15-X fool you; this thing is an absolute savage beast. For $3,579 (starting at $1,972), the Eon15-X will crush your foes with an 8th Gen i7 processor and a full Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080...

Origin Eon15-X Review

 

Excellent graphics and performance; Sleek, attractive chassis; Comfortable keyboard with springy feedback

Poor battery life; Display lacks brightness and vividness; Runs hot; Heavy for a mainstream laptop

The 15-inch Origin Eon15-X packs the power of much larger notebooks.

Origin PC EON15-X

 

It's a gaming desktop in a laptop. Sorta. Origin PC thinks outside the box about what goes inside the box. They make insanely fast, boxy and bodacious gaming laptops and desktops that are a bit chunky and aggressive looking and combine the best and...

Fast yet compact for a gaming laptop. Desktop CPU, strong dedicated graphics options, very customizable

It's a hefty hunk, fans are loud when gaming or working the CPU hard. Battery life is poor

The Origin PC EON15-X starts at a seductive $1,798, the same ballpark as other high end gaming laptops. When configured with a core i7 and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M or 980M, the price creeps north of the $2,000 mark and our decked out 1080p model is...
