Specifications, Configurations and Pricing

Our review system is packing the powerful Intel Core i7-3940XM. The quad-core extreme mobile chip has been factory overclocked by Origin and is a feature that will set you back a bit of extra cash. The quad-core is coupled with 8GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz RAM.

 

The graphics are provided by an overclocked 4GB NVIDIA GTX 680M, which is the single fastest mobile GPU available. The operating system is installed on dual 120GB Corsair Neutron GTX SSDs that are configured in a RAID 0 array. This means the system drive is unbelievably fast. It comes installed with Windows 8.

 

The approximate price for a system like ours is $3600, 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 of the EON17-S was absolutely superb. The cardboard box was placed inside of an Origin shipping crate made of wood. This is an additional shipping option available during purchase and almost guarantees that your system will arrive in one piece. Not only that, the lid of the shipping crate would be awesome to hang on your wall. It looks like something out of Indiana Jones.

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.
