Hardcore PC gamers have generally played games on desktop PCs as opposed to laptops due to the very high system requirements of today’s top video games. While desktop PCs don’t offer the portability that laptops do, they are commonly more powerful and customizable. Featuring a significant upgrade from its EON17, Origin PC has released the EON17-X laptop that’s built especially for gaming, giving avid gamers a portable machine that is even more powerful than most desktop PCs on the market.
The EON17-X is a certified beast, packing an Intel X79 Chipset with 2nd Generation Intel Hexcore processors and up to 32GB 1333Mhz Corsair Quad Channel memory or up to 16GB 1866MHz Corsair Vengeance Quad Channel memory. The laptop comes with a Dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M Graphics Card with ORIGIN Professional Overclocking for the best possible gaming experience. It also sports a customizable backlit keyboard with two lighting zones and seven colors and a 17.3-inch 1080p screen display. 4 hard drives can be added to the unit, allowing up to 3 terabytes of hard disk space. Although it is ideal for gaming, the EON17-X can also be used for other resource-intensive functions such as music production, computer-aided design, and other professional work. Although this all sounds very enticing, its USD$2,800+ (approximately Php 117,000) price tag will surely be discouraging. Plus, the unit weights over 12 pounds and measures over two inches thick, which is still infinitely more portable than a desktop gaming PC, but not something you would want to carry around.
