Origin PC Eon17-SLX 10 – Design and Colors:

The Eon17-SLX 10 series is enclosed in plastic material with the Origin logo noticeable at the top center position plus a pair of strips of LED lights. Further, inside presents the power button between the status lights plus the backlight keyboard. On the left-hand side of the laptop, there are three USB 3.0 ports, 2GB Ethernet ports, a headphone jack, a microphone jack and S/PDIF. On the right, there is one USB 3.0 port, two mini DisplayPorts, SD card reader and two Thunderbolt 3 ports.

The custom color is black but if one does not like monotony or wants a bit of variety there are costs to be incurred, that is: $225 for colored metallic lid where there are seven colors to choose from, a $299 for a paint job where there eight patterns to choose from or a custom paint job priced at $200. That said, it would be difficult for the Eon17-SLX 10 series to have an edge over its competitors in terms of overall attractiveness.

Origin PC Eon17-SLX 10 – Display and Features:

The laptop features a 17-inch screen with the dimensions measuring 17 x 12 x 1.9 inch and a weight of 12.8 pounds. To add to that, it has a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. When it comes to graphics, it uses the G-Sync technology from Nvidia which is for smoother images.

The performance of the Origin PC Eon17-SLX 10 does not disappoint in any way. Commencing from the graphics where the laptop packs two Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 GPUs with each of them offering 8GB of VRAM. The CPU running this machine is an Intel Core i7-6700K overclocked to around 4.5 GHz. This, by all means, makes it a very powerful laptop especially for gaming.

One of the most outright lowdown of this laptop is the battery. Through several steps and experience, the battery life is very low and this inhibits its usage. It also has a problem with heating and the fans can be unnecessarily noisy.
