The boutique system builders over at Origin PC are now equipping EON15-S and EON17-S gaming laptops with Nvidia's latest and greatest mobile graphics chip, the GeForce GTX 680M. Based on Nvidia's Kepler architecture, the GeForce GTX 680M is a high-octane GPU with 1344 CUDA cores, 4GB of GDDR5 graphics memory, and full support for Nvidia's battery-friendly Optimus technology.
Pricing starts at $2,091 for an EON15-S featuring Nvidia's flagship mobile GPU (or $1,567 for the lower end GTX 660M). A baseline configuration consists of an Intel Core i5 3320M processor, 4GB of DDR3-1333 memory, 8X DVD burner, 320GB 7200RPM SATA hard drive, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi with Bluetooth, built-in media card reader, fingerprint reader, USB 3.0 ports, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Not exactly a barn burner, though there are plenty of upgrade options, if your budget allows.
Starting price for an EON17-S equipped with a GeForce GTX 680M is $2,122 (or $1,598 for one sporting a GTX 660M). Baseline specs are nearly identical, save for the larger display, which features a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution, same as the 15-inch model.
Both systems with GTX 680M GPU option are available now.
