It's good to know that while everyone's talking up tablets and the so-called post PC era, there are still companies dishing out high-end hardware. Boutique system builder Origin PC is one of those companies, and nobody's going to confuse its EON17-SLX gaming laptop with a slate. It is, however, a desktop replacement that you can deck out as far as your budget allows, and it now comes with a 3D display option.
Upgrading the 17.3-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) display to 3D with Nvidia Vision 2 3D glasses adds $305 to the $1,888 base price. That investment gets you the following:
Intel Core i7 3610QM processor
Nvidia GeForce GTX 670MX GPU
4GB of DDR3-1333 memory
320GB hard drive (SATA 3Gb/s, 7200 RPM, 16MB cache)
8X DVD burner
Media card reader
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Some of those parts seem rather underwhelming for a no-compromises gaming laptop, though you can upgrade just about every facet of the EON17-SLX. There are faster (and overclocked) processor options, dual-graphics cards from either ATI or Nvidia, and room for up to three drives (SSD or HDD).
