Origin EON11-S Gaming Notebook Review - Specifications, Configurations, Pricing and Packaging

Origin EON11-S Gaming Notebook Review

We take a look at Origin's pint-sized EON11-S. This capable machine packs a quad-core CPU and 650M into an 11-inch chassis. Wow.

Specifications, Configurations and Pricing

Our review system is packing the older Intel Core i7-3720QM, which is no longer available. Origin is now shipping the Core i7-3740QM, a slightly faster iteration of the 3720QM, for the same price. It also features an NVIDIA GT 650M with 2GB of vRAM, 8GB of DDR3 RAM and a 256GB Samsung 830 Series solid state drive. Currently available models will feature the newer and faster 256GB Samsung 840 Pro Series SSD, which is one of the fastest 256GB SSD's on the market at the time of writing. It comes installed with Windows 8.

 

The approximate price for a system like ours is $1,544, though that will vary with the various sales Origin runs, along with the decrease of prices by suppliers. Origin machines are highly customizable, meaning that you can pretty much put whatever you want into the system, provided you have the cash to do so.

 

If you'd like to get an idea of some of the customizations available, you should check out Origin's website where you can customize the system. You can also give Origin a call and they will help you build a system to fit your needs.

 

 

Packaging

 

Packaging was more than sufficient to protect the laptop during transport. It featured a strong cardboard box surrounding the laptop, which was suspended in the middle by cardboard around the edges.

It uses a newer way of packaging, which features a cellophane-like sheet to hold the system in suspension. It really seems like it would protect the system from the prerequisite bumps and bruises that come with shipping a package.
