Sometimes, we like to see what's on your mind as far as what gadgets you'd like to have reviewed. This is one of those times. This viewer-requested Gadget Pr0n focuses on the ORIGIN EON 15 Gaming Laptop, a rig that hopes to bring PCs back to their gaming roots.
What You Need To Know
This is one of the heaviest laptops we've reviewed.
It's also very thick with a utilitarian design.
You can get a custom paint job but they start at $160.
For a 15" laptop, it also has a large extended keyboard and a touch pad, in addition to its LED backlit display.
The keyboard is pretty easy to use, and is widely spaced. We wish it were backlit, though.
The touch pad is also large and multi-touch, but it has a weird smooth texture. It's probably better to use a gaming mouse anyway.
The display is full 1080p full HD and looks terrific.
It's not as big as some gaming laptops, but it doesn't seem to be a problem when playing.
This has some of the best specs we've seen in a gaming laptop: Intel Core i7 processor & ATI 5870 video card.
It's just barely the fastest we've reviewed.
We maxed out all the settings in Blur and it had absolutely no problem.
It will blow through any game on the market and should be fine for years to come.
As for our normal 3DMark Vantage tests, it scored the highest we've seen but only by a couple hundred points (8,421).
