Origin Eon: Ex-Alienware Execs 18 Inches of Gaming Greatness

When Dell grabbed Alienware for itself four years ago three key execs decided to say thanks, but no thanks.

Instead they formed ‘Origin‘ and went about building things the way Alienware originally did and created the Eon18 laptop.

The Eon18 has a distinct Alienwareness about it and, as you’d expect, this lappy is quite the customisable puter. It comes with an 18.4″ full HD widescreen, dual Nvidia GeForce GTX 280M GPUs, 7.1 high-def audio, and up to three 250GB SSDs. It bounces with a Core 2 Extreme Quad QX9300 at the mo but on the otherside of this weekend it’ll be rocking a Core i7.

Ok, so there’s bigger, more hardcore portable gamers out there but the fact that customisation includes whatever colour and design you want for the lid as well as being able to slap your own name or logo on the case instead of it saying ‘Origin’ must score some cool points. Vanity much? 😉

Remember, this laptop is coming from a bunch of people that are obviously passionate about gaming and their products. As if to underline this fact, all their puters come with a lifetime labour guarantee and whilst they’re still a moderate size you’ll be getting boutique level support.

Here’s an overview of the Eon18:
The ORIGIN EON18 is pure portable domination. No more choosing between lugging your desktop or having to play on a subpar laptop, with ORIGIN you’ll have the best in mobile gaming in your hands. When you step through the door with this beast under your arm everyone will know, its game over man!
