Getting yourself an affordable yet powerful gaming laptop can be close to dream – well, at least it used to be. Now there’s one that can make that dream to a reality – the EON15-S from Origin PC which is equipped with Kaby Lake as well as Pascal under its hood.
This all new gaming pc from Origin PC hits the market at a starting price of $999. Now people may say it’s fairly cheap but it probably has low specs to compensate for the price – well they’re wrong. Amidst the low price, it boasts an Intel Core i3-7100H dual-core processor paired with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with customizable hardware should you want your pc to be more monstrous than it already is.
In a recent report, the Origin PC CEO and co-founder Kevin Wasielewski states “For many years Origin PC has wanted to offer a customizable laptop with a great gaming experience and premium support that doesn’t sacrifice quality and starts at a more accessible price point.” He even adds “Our new EON15-S laptop is a breakthrough product offering high-performance gaming, 6 hours of battery life, and 24/7 US based lifetime support all for just $999.”
The newest addition to its gaming pc family, the EON15-S is only an inch thick and has a total weight of 5 lbs with even the battery included. For the other specs, it features a 15.6’ 1080p screen, a pair of USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one USB 3.0 Type-C port with one USB 2.0 port and 802.11ac Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth connectivity. It is even designed to have a media card reader, a 2 megapixel built-in webcam and comes along with a RGB keyboard that is customizable.
To top it off, the company also provides this new laptop with 8G Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4-2133 RAM along with 120 GB SSD and of course Windows 10 Home 64-bit to complete the package.
Although the GPU cannot be upgraded and is fixed to 1050 Ti, other features can definitely be beefed up. One upgrade you can do is upgrading your proci to Core i7-7700HQ and moving up to 16 GB on your RAM and stepping up the HDD to 500GB Samsung 960 for a convenient price of $1,466. Also, if you want your pc to look sleek with themed paint jobs then you can add another $175 to go with your complete package.
