Origin is a fairly new boutique system builder, but already the company is making some noise in the gaming community. The company's latest machine is the new EON18 custom gaming laptop. Featuring "the most powerful and fastest gaming technology in the world," the EON18 combines today's fastest processors and graphics solutions to give you a screaming laptop. “The new EON18 is all about gaming, power and performance, with the combination of Intel’s Core i7 Extreme processor and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 285M graphics all wrapped up in a package that is portable”, says Kevin Wasielewski, CEO/Co-Founder of ORIGIN PC. “The EON18 is for gamers who crave power and speed over cute and petite.” Key features...

Last week, we brought you a preview of newcomer Origin PC's Genesis desktop and announced a system giveaway. Now it's time to investigate the system's actual performance as shipped. With a list price of $4999 as configured, this particular Genesis system is breathing some rarefied air indeed. Our expectations are similarly high; any company marketing a $5000 system has to demonstrate it's got all of its bases covered. We were happy with Origin's warranty terms and promise of lifetime support when we previewed the system; let's see if the company's hardware selection and system performance are commensurate with its lifetime support and personalized care...

Last week, we brought you a preview of newcomer Origin PC's Genesis desktop and announced a system giveaway (details available here).  At that time we noted that "there's a new company joining the ranks of boutique system builders with customization options that could turn the head of even the most die-hard DIY-er. The paint is scarcely dry on the Origin logo—the business opened on November 17th—but the corporation's three founders each spent a decade at Alienware prior to founding Origin.

There's a new company joining the ranks of boutique system builders with customization options that could turn the head of even the most die-hard DIY-er. The paint is scarcely dry on the Origin logo—the business opened on November 17th—but the corporation's three founders each spent a decade at Alienware prior to founding Origin. Their collective expertise is already evident; Origin offers unique customization options that set a new bar for what constitutes a "customizable" system.

Alienware, Dell, HP, Falcon Northwest--the list goes on and on. But really, can there ever be enough gaming PCs? We think not. Today, a new company has broken out by the name of ORIGIN, and it's hoping to provide custom gaming machines to those with specific requests and the money to pay for 'em.The new company is also unveiling its first two machines, the GENESIS desktop and EON18 notebook. The idea here is pretty unique--for the desktop, you choose any chassis on the market, any paint you want and pretty much any hardware, with prices starting at $1699. Obviously things will get pretty expensive if you choose wild stuff, but at least the option is there. Have a look at the first two options... Read more...
