Now, typically, we would cover local product launches but this latest laptop called the EON17-S from Origin got our attention. Origin PC is known for its PCs and notebooks in the international market. Their new notebook is powered by Intel’s Core i7 2920XM processor, which is common on high-end gaming laptops. Origin PC has overclocked the 2920XM to 4.8 GHz from its stock speed of 3.6 GHz. Origin also gives its customers the options to choose a slower processor.
More power than most desktops
Some of the other components available for customization are the memory and the graphics solution. Users can add up to 32GB of memory and even a high-end graphics solution such as the NVIDIA GeForce GTX485M or AMD’s Radeon HD6970M GPU. The notebook sells with a 17-inch full HD display and there is also the option for a 3D display in place of the standard one. If required, RAID can be setup as well and Origin provides the option of a 512GB SSD in place of the 750 GB 7200 rpm drives. The EON17-s doesn’t come cheap. The cheapest configuration of the EON17-S laptop sells for around $1759 (Rs. 80,000) and that’s including most of the components mentioned above.
