Origin EON17-S review: This gaming laptop is an absolute beast

I'm a gamer. And, like most gamers, I prefer huge, liquid-cooled, multiple-graphics-card-sporting desktops to laptops (even gaming laptops).

I'm a gamer. And, like most gamers, I prefer huge, liquid-cooled, multiple-graphics-card-sporting desktops to laptops (even gaming laptops). But sometimes you need a machine that's as portable as it is powerful, and that's where Origin's extreme gaming laptop, the EON17-S, comes into play.
I've been reviewing laptops--especially huge, hulking, desktop replacement laptops--for several years now, the term "gaming laptop" still seems like a paradox. After all, is it still a "laptop" if it's got a 17.3-inch screen and weighs 9.2 pounds (sans accessories) Not really.
The Origin EON15-S is more than a notebook, it's a gamer's tool. It has one of the fastest configurations for a 15in laptop on the Australian market and it can handle most games at high detail levels and at Full HD resolution. It doesn't make you sacrifice eye-candy for performance like many other gaming laptops tend to do -- with this one, you can have both beautiful graphics and playable frame rates. The cost is just shy of $2800 for the particular configuration that we looked at, and if you're serious about performance and features in a notebook computer, then it's a model that's well worth considering.
