Origin PC have just unveiled their new EON 13-S notebook, which features a 13.3-inch LED backlit Full HD IPS display (with a matte finish). Inside of the new EON 13-S, we have a fourth-generation "Haswell" Core processor from Intel, and NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 765M GPU.



You can choose between four different Intel Core i7 processors, starting with the i7 4700MQ clocked at 2.4GHz, i7 4800MQ @ 2.7GHz, i7 4900MQ running at 2.8GHz or the i7 Extreme 4930MX clocked at 3.0GHz. All four processors are quad-core parts with Intel's Turbo Boost technology. Origin PC have decided to offer up some great memory options, too.


For starters, we have memory options of 4GB, 8GB and 16GB which arrive in either generic 1,333MHz DIMMs, or you can opt for the much better Corsair Vengeance 1,600MHz sticks. There's room for three HDDs, including dual mSATA and RAID support. There's options for an external optical drive, Creative Sound Blaster audio, Killer Wireless card and even a Hauppauge WinTV Tuner through USB.




We have three USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, one HDMI output, a headphone jack, microphone jack, Ethernet, and DC-in for power. Origin PC are touting around five hours on the battery, which is a removable 6-cell lithium-ion battery. All-in-all, the Origin PC EON 13-S weighs 4.4 pounds and starts at $1,418.


If you place an order between now and August 5, you'll receive free ground shipping, free professional GPU overclocking, a free Corsair M95 high-performance mouse and a free Corsair MM200 mouse pad.
