Gaming laptops are starting to become very popular, especially in the past year or two. These laptops managed to deliver high competitive performance and a wide range of configuration options. After using Nvidia’s GeForce 860M graphics card, gaming laptops started to get slimmer in size and offer probably much better than console experiences. However, gaming laptops like Razer, Asus and Origin PC started to use a higher-end GeForce 980M card, pushing the games to 4K resolutions.
On the other side, gaming desktops look like they won’t be leaving the main stage and after Nvidia’s newest Titan X GPU and Intel’s Haswell-E processor, which are desktop-only parts, they will remain there for a long period.
However, gaming laptops are worth a shot and not to be forgotten that it all depends on the customer’s preferences. The difference between a gaming laptop and a desktop is not that big, especially since the Origin PC offers a combination system that uses laptop parts, like Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M GPU, but paired with a desktop CPU, a 4GHZ Intel Core i7-4790K. This interesting combination also includes a 240GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. Origin PC Eon15-X can be found at the price of 2,549 dollars.
Origin PC is not the first laptop that uses desktop CPUs, but compared with Origin, those systems have needed bigger chassis, making the design bulky and completely impractical. The new Eon14-X uses a chassis that is not quite bulkier compared with standard gaming laptops that are on the market. To be mentioned that Origin PC was founded by former Alienware guys, who managed to choose the right components and turn them for maximum performance. In the laptop’s price, customers will also receive a high level of personalized service and support and even a lifetime tech support, in the form of email assistance and access to phone. They also received free assistance on future upgrades and repairs.
Yes, the display is probably the most important component in any gaming laptop. Origin PC comes with a 15.6-inch screen and a native resolution of 1,920×1,080 pixels. That’s probably the longtime standard that every gaming PC has, but this laptop now offers for an extra 144 dollars, a 4K 3,840×2,160 option. Sounds like a good deal and the company declared that the screen has a glossy finish.
