Origin PC has just announced availability of the company’s newest laptop, the EON17-X, which is being touted as a desktop replacement. The laptop features the latest Intel X79 chipset as well as a 2nd generation Intel hexcore processor and overclocked Nvidia GeForce GTX 580M graphics cards in SLI.
As Origin puts it, the EON17-X is the “most powerful laptop on the market for gamers, artists, enthusiasts and professionals.” In addition to that, the EON17-X marks the very first laptop from the company to come with a customizable backlit keyboard with two lighting zones and seven different color options.
Full features for the EON17-X include: customizable backlit keyboard, Intel X79 chipset with 2nd generation Intel hexcore processors, up to 32GB 1333MHz Corsair quad channel memory, up to 16GB 1866MHz Corsair Vengeance quad channel memory, up to dual Nvidia GeForce GTX580M graphics cards with Origin professional overclocking, up to three hard drives with up to 3TB of hard drive space, and full 24/7 lifetime support.
According to Origin PC CEO and Co-Founder Kevin Wasielewski, “Origin is thrilled to answer out customers’ requests by adding a customizable backlit keyboard to the EON17-X. The EON17-X is more powerful than a lot of desktops on the market. With an Intel X79 chipset and dual overclocked Nvidia GeForce GTX 580Ms in SLI you won’t find a more powerful laptop anywhere else.”
Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products for Corsair, added, “We are pleased with Origin PC’s choice of Vengeance high-performance memory for the EON17-X. It’s designed to automatically take advantage of the faster memory speeds made possible with Intel 2nd generation processors and helps fulfill Origin PC’s mission of building a premium performance laptop.”
Origin PC’s EON17-X ultra-powerful laptop is available now for a base price of $2,818, though Origin has also announced that a 3D model, equipped with a built-in 3D emitter, will be available around the beginning of Q2 2012 so if you prefer 3D, then I suggest waiting a couple more months for that model.
