Origin’s mega step by integrating the recently released Intel Core i9-8950HK into its new PC Gaming laptops, at reasonable prices, is one to applaud. On the 1st of Aug. this year, Origin PC announced the coming of two gaming laptops powered by the i-Monster of Intel’s Creations.
The EON15-S is intriguing as it weighs only 3.4 pounds with a thickness of 0.94 to 0.75 inch, making enough room for the CPU. With an integration of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GPU driving the 15.6-inch FHD display, a spicing up capability supporting a pair of 2TB memory, space for up to two m.2PCLe SSDs, & 32GB Ram (DDR4), this Origin’s creation stands as a testament of optimal power. It also comes equipped with a hybrid mechanical keyboard with per-key RGB back-lighting.
According to Origin, the PC also has a power saving toggle (at the touch of a button) that offers up to 8 hours of life, for average everyday users.
Basically, the EVO17-S can be said to be the Big brother to the EVO15-S (released last year). It sports a sweet 17.3-inch screen, is 0.98-inch thick & weighs a nice 6.6 pounds, which is considerably low for a gaming PC.
Nvidia’s stutter-stopping UHD G-Sync tech in 4K (3,840 x 2160) & FHD (1920 x 1080) resolution has been made available & is powered by the mighty Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. The storage & memory options are similar to that of the EON15-S’s. A plus is the fresh optimization option to add a single 2.5-inch SSD or HDD with up to 4TB worth of space. It also features Intel’s Core i9-8950HK CPU.
Origin over the years has built a reputation for building high-end rigs thus we believe the lightweight design won’t result to lower headroom, with the Core i9’s high clock speeds. Workstation versions dubbed the NS-15S & NT-17 have also been launched. It is also worth noting that ALL Origin PC’s come with lifetime 24/7 tech support & lifetime labour for free.

The EON15-S & EVO17-S can be ordered through the Origin PC Website at $1,449 & $1,999 respectively.
Note: The Core i9 isn’t yet available on the EON15-S (only 6-core i7-8750H), however, Origin has confirmed it’ll be arriving soon.
