Origin PC Unveils Overhauled EON17-S and EON15-S Laptops at PAX East

You may already be familiar with Origin PC's high octane EON17-S and EON15-S gaming laptops, but you've never seen them like this before. Sporting a complete redesign from the inside out, these are some of the first notebooks on the planet to feature Intel's next generation HM77 chipset (mobile Ivy Bridge).

The redesigned EON17-S and EON15-S also boast mobile Kepler parts from NVIDIA, including GeForce GTX 660M, 670M, and overclocked 675M options. Combined with NVIDIA's Optimus technology, Origin PC claims you'll be able to squeeze up to 6.5 hours of battery life out these notebooks, which is two and a half times longer than previous generation EON17-S and EON15-S could muster.

Other features include a customizable backlit keyboard with three lighting zones and seven color options, Intel Rapid Start technology, factory CPU (EON17-S only) and GPU overclocking, THX TruStudio Pro with Onkyo surround sound, and free lifetime 24/7 support based in the United States.

"The type of complete technology overhaul that the EON17-S and EON15-S laptops have just undergone does not happen often. This is the best time to upgrade to an Origin laptop," said Kevin Wasielewski Origin PC CEO and co-founder. "With the latest technology from Intel and NVIDIA, the customizable backlit keyboard, and the exclusive Origin laptop design the new EON-S laptops offer stunning performance and they look as good as they perform."

Pricing starts at $1525 for the 15-inch EON15-S and $1576 for the 17-inch EON17-S.
