Origin PC Shoves Core i7 into EON15 Gaming Notebook

Paul Lilly

Origin PC becomes the latest manufacturer to cram Intel's Core i7 chip into a notebook PC, albeit in a 15-inch package. Combined with a bunch of other higher end parts, the EON15 comes ready to hang with the big and bad 17-inch crowd.

The EON15 boasts an LED backlit display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. On the other side of the lid buyers can opt for a personalized "Top Cover Painting" by Killer Paint. Pricing for customized paint jobs start at $159, or $259 if you choose one of the two pre-configured designs.

Underneath the hood sits an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a GeForce GTX 280M or 285M graphics card with 1GB of dedicated video memory, up to a 640GB HDD or 256GB SSD, optional Blu-ray burner, Wi-Fi, and Windows 7.

The baseline configuration starts at $1,723, while a fully decked out rig runs closer to $4,000.
