Origin PC Eon17-SLX 10 Series Review and Specifications

May 1, 2020

Overview

The term “desktop replacement” has bounced around for years, and it’s always been a bit of an exaggeration. Yes, the so-called replacements had larger screens and quick processors, but they couldn’t match a desktop’s performance. Origin PC EON17-SLX 10 is a wave in the rising tide of new laptops that literally replicate the performance of a desktop PC. They do this by equipping actual desktop components. Inside the EON17-SLX you’ll find a Core i7-6700K processor (overclocked to 4.5GHz), 16GB of RAM, a GTX 1080 graphics card, and two hard drives. These components are identical to those equipped by high-end gaming towers.
It’s impressive to see desktop class hardware crammed into a 17-inch laptop, but it’d be silly to expect it to be without compromise. The EON17-SLX is huge, and its $3,600 price tag puts it well above the price of an average gaming laptop. Can this portable rig deliver desktop-caliber enjoyment, or is it trying to fill an unnecessary niche? Check out in our Review on the Origin PC Eon17-SLX 10 Laptop.
