Origin PC's EON17-SLX Features Haswell and Dual GTX 780M Option for Gamers with Deep Pockets

The definition of desktop replacement

We've seen some thin and light gaming laptops come through the pipeline in recent weeks, but on the other end of the spectrum are full fledged desktop replacements that bring the bulk. Once such system is Origin PC's new EON17-SLX, an unapologetically big and burly system that wields up to two Nvidia GeForce GTX 780M GPUs. Such a luxury costs a pretty penny, though a single GPU setup starts at $1,999.

A baseline configuration boasts a 17.3-inch display with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution, Intel Core i7 4700MQ processor, 4GB of DDR3-1333 memory, Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M (2GB), 320GB hard drive (7200 RPM, 16MB cache, SATA 3Gbps), 8X DVD burner, backlit keyboard with three lighting zones and seven color options, HD audio powered by Sound Blaster FXi, 802.11n Wi-Fi, USB 3.0 ports, media card reader, webcam, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and a few other odds and ends.

That's a decent foundation, though if you have the funds and can justify spending a fortune on a gaming laptop, there are plenty of upgrade options at every turn, including room for up to five storage drives (with dual mSATA RAID support).

Origin PC's EON17-SLX is available now.
