Origin's EON line of gaming PCs was never a slow one. In fact, it was one of the most blazing lines around, with wicked customization options and a sky-is-the-limit vibe to it. Now, there's even more wow-factor packed in. The company has just upgraded the EON17-S with a 1080p 3D panel and overclocking options that push the CPU to 4.8GHz! Yes, that's from Origin, and yes, they'll honor their own warranty even with a chip pushed to the extreme.

Furthermore, the company's tossing in a built-in 3D emitter. So, let's recap: a near-5GHz CPU, 1080p 3D and a massive 17" shell. Shame the starting tag is still $1759, but you obviously get what you pay for.

Now how much battery life does this one have? :)

And having it factory clocked there's no worry of it dieing on you and having to buy new parts :)

I ordered this and was just told by Origin that we can´t have 3D and OC together on one machine.

It´s either 3D or 4.8Ghz... Crying really hope they still make it possible soon... Confused

  They should paint these 'Ferrari Red' considering the speed that they run at. 

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

This is a beast, it puts Alienware and other laptop boutiques to shame!

And honoring a warranty on an over-clocked machine is a miracle in itself
