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.
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.
Before anyone asks, the answer is yes, Origin's new EON17-SLX laptop with support for up to two discrete GPUs has enough horsepower to carry Crysis on its back while lugging around a sack of eye candy. Even without dual graphics cards, the EON17-SLX is, on paper, a pretty potent system with the requisite hardware to properly drive a 17.3-inch display with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution.
