Physical Overview Continued
Most notebooks come with 720p cameras, but the EON17-X comes loaded with a full HD 1080p camera, and a nice big LED next to it will illuminate if it's in use. The camera quality is very good, and vastly superior to many of the 720p cameras I see. There is also a dual array microphone system built into the panel.
The power button is located right in the center and on either side are two speakers. The speakers are very loud, and even at maximum volume, they do not distort easily. They are high quality, and the speaker at the bottom of the unit helps the low-end of the spectrum. This notebook has one of the best built-in audio systems I have seen and heard.
The battery pack can be removed, and it's not very big considering the amount of power the unit uses. Perhaps that is why GPU overclocking is disabled when the unit is unplugged from AC power.
The main bay door for expansion is next to the battery, and it allows for installation of another drive, as well as replacement of one of the M.2 drives and the 2.5 inch HDD. To open the bay door, you just unscrew a few screws and slide the plastic cover off towards the front of the notebook.
The large rear panel is also removed by sliding it, but towards the back of the unit and not the front. Sliding the unit reveals the huge blower fans and multiple heat pipe configuration. It also reveals the memory slots and second M.2 bay. The EON17-X has one of the most beastly cooling systems I have ever seen.
